A common misconception about a career in tax is that it is just about numbers, however, tax law has a strong basis in legislation and case law. Therefore, it is really suitable for graduates from a legal background, or for qualified solicitors and barristers.

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

100 New Jobs on the way with viagogo Group

The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, today announced that the viagogo Group, which operates, the world’s largest ticket marketplace, intends to double its workforce in Ireland over the next three years. The development will bring staff levels from 100 to over 200 employees.

The viagogo Group has also expanded the scope of roles available in Limerick to include international customer services, sales, software development, finance and operations.

The company is currently recruiting for a number of roles, from German-speaking customer services associates to software developers.

The jobs are supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

The Minister opened the viagogo Group’s new state-of-the-art Operations Centre in Limerick with Oliver Wheeler, Global Head of Communications for the viagogo Group, who commented: “We opened in a temporary location in Limerick last year and were overwhelmed by the level of local talent and the support from organisations such as the IDA. We already employ a hundred people in Limerick and, now that our new purpose-built Operations Centre is ready, we plan to hire at least a hundred more over the next three years.”

Speaking at the event Minister Bruton said: “At the heart of our jobs plan is supporting job creation in every region of the country, to ensure that the recovery is secured and felt by people right across Ireland. Today’s announcement that viagogo, a fast-growing, born-on-the-internet company, is expanding its operations in Limerick and creating 100 extra jobs is a great boost for the Mid West and a great example of what is possible through our regional jobs strategy. I am determined that through solid implementation of our plan we can secure the recovery and support more projects like viagogo across the country. I wish all at viagogo every success with this project”.
