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.

  Hint: Failte Ireland
My current job is the Area HR Manager in the Hilton Hotel in Dublin.  I've been with Hilton now for over 7 years and have been promoted 3 times.  I've also had the opportunity to open 2 new hotels which was a fantastic opportunity . The recruitment process at Hilton is fairly rigorous; I had to attend several behavioural interviews, provide references and complete psychometric assessments. I was informed within a week that I had been successful.
