My advice to someone considering a job in a financial institution would be to do some research. There are many areas to choose from in Bank of Ireland, from branch banking to marketing, and there are many starting points to build a lifelong career in a rewarding and challenging environment.

I would recommend that someone should work hard for their Leaving Cert to attain good results. The most important thing about working in a bank is to have good customer service skills, from here everything else will fall in to place.

Naturalist?
Naturalist 
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.
