Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their most productive under supervisors who give clear guidelines and while 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.

Forging ahead in the world of digital news 

As a former journalist for a range of newspapers, including The Irish Independent and The Irish Times, and as the global Head of Journalism Partnerships for Facebook in New York, Áine Kerr has seen major revolutions in how and where news is published and accessed.

Her latest venture is NevaLabs, which she set up with Storyful founder Mark Little, to develop a personal assistant that gives a user back conscious control of their news experience: no hidden filters, control over data and privacy and no agenda.

“My humanities background has helped to inform my understanding of how technology can be a powerful force for good,” says Kerr. ”Only with the blend of technology and humans will we solve some of the most pressing known and unknown issues of our time.”
