Jameson is looking for Tipperary graduates to join their  international programme

Brand Ambassador Will Moylan is from Clonmel

Irish Distillers, the makers of the world’s most enjoyed whiskeys and one of Ireland’s leading suppliers of spirits and wines, is looking for Tipperary 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. Jameson is looking for applicants from Tipperary to follow in the footsteps of Will Moylan from Clonmel, Co. Tipperary who is working as a Brand Ambassador in Shanghai, China.

Jameson is looking to recruit over 20 graduates for roles in markets such as France, Italy, Spain, UK, Portugal, Germany, China and Japan where they will have a unique opportunity to develop fundamental business skills with a globally successful Irish brand. 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.   

Will Moylan who is working as Brand Ambassadors in Shanghai, China. said: “I wanted to pursue a career that would challenge me in the skills I learned at college. I also knew I wasn’t ready for a typical nine-to-five desk job. The Jameson International Graduate Programme ticked all the boxes. While many programmes offer great experience in a certain area, the Jameson International Graduate Programme offers invaluable experience in a huge variety of areas. I’m getting experience in sales, marketing, event management, project management, social media to name a few, and all in a global market. I would highly recommend applying for the programme.”

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.

Applications for the 2019/20 Jameson International Graduate Programme close on Wednesday 16th January 2019 at 1pm.  Those wishing to apply for the Jameson International Graduate Programme can do so at: www.jamesongraduateprogramme.com
