Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Alan Gilligan, Administrative Officer

Alan began working in the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform in June 2012 after finishing his studies of Economics in National University of Ireland, Galway. Alan was attracted to the Civil Service because it offered a role in formulating public policy at a time when Ireland’s economic challenges were most pressing.
