It is a very rewarding but also extremely challenging job. It requires a lot of resilience, mental strength, patience and compassion. It means seeing people at their worst in the most difficult circumstances.

It involves making difficult decisions, which will have life changing consequences for the offenders. If you think you have the ability to handle all that, it is a truly great job with amazing opportunities.

Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Career Sectors

Industry sectors are clusters of occupations that have something in common, for example, the type of work they do or their role in the economy. Very often people are attracted to the products or services provided by a particular sector, and seek to find employment close to the essence of that area.

We provide information to enable you to explore over 30 sectors that make up the Irish Labour market. These have been divided into 6 main categories to make it easy to explore as follows:

Where possible we bring you the most up-to-date information directly from the experts that oversee the different sectors. These organisations provide detailed information from which career seekers can make their most informed choices.

Exploring career sectors is often one of the easiest ways of finding out what your child is interested in, and is an excellent place to start.

Action Point: Explore the Career Sectors as described here with your teenager. Which ones are they drawn to? Which ones are ruled out - and why? Tell your teenager which ones you are attracted to and why. Explore the sectors together, checking your childs understanding of the information, and allow them to lead the way by following what interests them.

Take note of any courses or occupations that they show an interest in. Clicking on the course or occupation will bring up further information to explore.

Note that each sector includes:

  • Career overview
  • Labour Market information
  • Occupations
  • CAO Courses
  • PLC Courses
  • Links to Recruitment Websites
  • News and Links
