Department of the Taoiseach / Civil Service
I studied Business Studies in University of Limerick before completing my masters in University College Cork in 2010. I studied Economics and therefore wanted to pursue a career in this field, I joined the Civil Service in 2012 as an AO Economist in the Department of An Taoiseach.
Working in the Department of An Taoiseach means working at the heart of Government every day.
I work in the Economic, International and Northern Ireland Division which means I experience a wide range of tasks every day. One day I can be working on British – Irish relations and the next I could be developing Economic policy. I am centrally involved organising meetings and trips for the Taoiseach.
I find my role challenging and diverse. It also allows me to be exposed to high level meetings and gives me an insight to how Government really works.
