Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

We asked Kieran Magee from Teagasc to give some advice for people considering this job:

  Kieran Magee
Someone who wants to be where I am today shall need bucket loads of ambition and not be afraid of hard work.  They will need to not be afraid of starting at the very bottom of that big high ladder but at the same time have the eagerness and determination to get to the top of that ladder because the opportunities are there.

Education is very important.  It may only seem like a silly piece of paper but it's that Cert, Diploma or Degree that gets you that job and not the man/woman beside you.

The one thing that is vital in not alone this job, but any job, and alot of people don't seem to have it, is common sense. It's something so simple but really important. if you have no cop-on then nobody wants to know you.

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.

About the Irish Tax Institute

Located at the heart of Dublin's Silicon Docks, the Irish Tax Institute is the gold standard in tax, and the only professional body exclusively dedicated to tax. We have educated the leaders in tax for the last 40 years, and our Chartered Tax Advisers (CTA) are amongst 28,000 CTA internationally.

We educate and develop the finest minds in tax, and prepare them to become leaders in the profession.  Top employers choose to educate their employees with us.

We offer two tax qualifcations - our three-part Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) and one-year Tax Technician courses.

Have you ever considered a career in tax as a Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA)?

A career in tax creates opportunities. The opportunity for challenging and diverse work. The opportunity to see the world. The opportunity to work on the most cutting edge commercial transactions.

Tax is part of the international language of finance, and the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification is the international hallmark of excellence in tax.  You could be part of a group of 28,000 CTAs working all over the globe from Ireland, to the UK, USA, Asia to Australia.

Our Chartered Tax Advisers (CTA) discuss their careers in our video!

Not just for business graduates

A common misconception is that only business graduates pursue a career in tax. Not so! The great thing about a career in tax is that it is more about the qualities that you bring to the career, rather than your educational background.  Skills such as creative thinking, analytical know-how and commercial awareness are so important. 

In addition to business and law graduates, those with an engineering, science and the humanities background also successfully pursue careers in tax. Go to www.careerintax.ie  and see the variety of roles, sectors and backgrounds that Chartered Tax Advisers (CTA) work in or find our Irish Tax Institute Students page on Facebook
