Give your career a kick start

IRISH Distillers is calling on applicants from Dublin to join the Jameson International Graduate Programme.

Irish Distillers is looking for graduates from Dublin to follow in the footsteps of Conor Timmons and Eve Clowry, who are currently Jameson Brand Ambassadors in Toronto and Dubai respectively.

This year Jameson is looking to recruit over 20 graduates for roles in markets such as Germany, France, Italy, Spain, China, Japan and Russia where they will have a unique opportunity to develop fundamental business leadership skills supported by Irish Distillers’ and Pernod Ricard’s international network.

At present, there are 75 graduates working in 42 global markets as part of the three-year Jameson International Brand Ambassador programme.

Eve Clowry, from Leopardstown, who is currently Jameson Brand ambassador in Dubai, said: “My experience on the Programme has been amazing.

“I would never have thought that I would be living and working in Dubai for an internationally known brand, like Jameson, straight out of college.

“It is incredible to think that as a new graduate, I am playing a role in driving the success of an Irish brand globally and supporting the global Irish whiskey success story. Already I have encountered numerous challenges and in dealing with them, honed skills which will stand to me whatever my next career move may be.

Sinead D’Arcy, Jameson International Graduate programme manager said: “Our programme, established 25 years ago, has played a central role in this phenomenal growth story. We’re proud to offer Ireland’s best young graduates an experience like no other. With graduates in over 40 countries all around the world, the sun never sets on the Jameson International Graduate Programme

“What starts in Dublin can take you anywhere from Berlin to Brussels or Bueno Aries to Boston. Whether you want experience with an emerging market, or in a developed market, our programme is for you.

“The majority of our graduates have a business, marketing or languages background but we are open to graduates from all disciplines.

“Our graduates come from backgrounds as diverse as law, physiotherapy and psychology.

“What we look for are candidates with a well-rounded college and life experience.”

Online applications are now open at www.jamesongraduateprogramme.com and close at 1pm Monday, January 16 2017.
