I took a very indirect route into this role as it was vital that I understood all aspects of the business in order to perform the tasks and responsibilities required of me. I would therefore advise anyone who is looking to get into the area of compliance to study a law related course and then apply for a management position in any area of the business, as companies tend to value experience within the business as opposed to you coming straight out of college. I had no idea when I joined the Sales department that I would be given the opportunity to use my degree so you never know what opportunities may present themselves.

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.
