Irish Distillers, the makers of the world’s most enjoyed whiskeys and one of Ireland’s leading suppliers of spirits and wines, are looking for graduates with serious character to join the 2019/20 Jameson International Graduate Programme. The programme, which is now in its 27th year, provides graduates with the opportunity to realise their personal and professional goals while working with a global Irish brand, on an international stage.
Sinéad D’Arcy, Head of Jameson International Graduate Programme said: “The Jameson International Graduate Programme is a truly unique programme offering graduates three-years’ experience in a marketing role, in one of over 50 countries across the world. The programme has evolved over the past number of years to meet the changing needs and expectations of graduates in an increasingly competitive jobs market. Today it is recognised as one of Ireland’s leading graduate programmes.”
Successful graduates are provided with the opportunity to shape their own experience supported by a competitive benefits package; a multi-award-winning training and development programme and a global support network, empowering them to hone and develop the necessary skills required to progress their career, while contributing to the global Irish whiskey success story.
“Every year we look for driven, charismatic and creative graduates, from a range of diverse backgrounds, to serve as brand ambassadors in cities across the world. The programme provides graduates with the resources to establish the brand in a seed market or accelerate the brands growth in an established one, while building professional confidence and competence. Applications are now open, and we would advise graduates with serious character to apply,” added D’Arcy.
To date, over 400 graduates have completed the Jameson International Graduate Programme since it was established in 1991. Alumni of the programme have progressed to roles internally within Irish Distillers and Pernod Ricard globally and externally across various sectors in over 33 cities around the world. Over half of Irish Distillers’ Dublin based International Marketing Team launched their careers through the programme, and 34 percent of alumni remain within the wider company network.
Jameson is the fifth most popular graduate employer in Ireland as voted for by students and recent graduates, according to the 2018 Ireland’s 100 Leading Graduate Employers survey, published by gradireland. The Jameson International Graduate Programme accepts applicants from all disciplines, so a marketing or business background is not essential.
