Working in Dublin City council needs for management skills more than the technical ones. At Dublin city council, the assessment for risks and hazards is taken into account duly by the people working in the site. The work is very systematic leading to solve issues may arise at work place quickly.

I did work experience for 5 days in the youth centre in Cabra, it was enjoyable and had a great atmosphere. Each day was different due to different activity with the children on each day, it was hard to get the children to settle,but overall a good experience.

A typical day would require me visiting elderly citizens who lived in complexes and I would help them with things and listen to them as they spoke about their daily routines.
I enjoyed doing this very much as it opened my mind to the lives on the older generation.
