Now in its 28th year, the Jameson International Graduate Programme provides graduates with the opportunity to work with a world-renowned Irish brand in one of over 50 countries.

Speaking about the vacancies, Sinéad D’Arcy, Head of Jameson International Graduate Programme said:

"Jameson is the number one Irish whiskey in the world with sales of 7.7 million cases last year with double or triple-digit growth in more than 70 markets across the world. 

"It is fast becoming a truly global brand, with strong sales in emerging markets like Nigeria, India, Mexico, and Brazil. 

"The growth of the Jameson International Graduate Programme mirrors that of Jameson, therefore we are looking to recruit Brand Ambassadors for our 2020/2021 intake, some of whom will have the opportunity to work in emerging markets in Africa, Asia and Latin America."

The graduate programme, which was established in 1991 has seen 400 people complete the programme, many of whom have gone on to attain a permanent position in the company afterwards. 

"Over the past 28 years, the programme has evolved to meet the changing needs and expectations of graduates, as well as the Jameson brand.

"Last year we recruited a number of Brand Ambassadors in local markets.

"These hires have the knowledge and network locally to help build the Jameson brand and drive awareness. 

"Their participation on the programme helps drive diversity, knowledge sharing and ultimately build a graduate programme representative of the Jameson brand.

"Graduates are based across all five continents, and in the past three years the programme has grown significantly in Africa, Asia and Latin America with Brand Ambassadors now based in countries such as Cameroon, Peru, Mexico and Malaysia," continued D’Arcy.

Speaking about what kind of person the company is looking for she said:

"Each year we look for graduates who are creative, innovative, self-starters, we refer to this as Serious Character

"The programme is open to all degree types and through our multi-award-winning training and development programme we provide graduates with the tools and knowledge to establish the brand in a seed market or accelerate brand growth in an established one. 

"The application process includes a brief written application and the submission of a supporting two-minute video application.

"I would encourage any graduate considering applying to start planning their application without delay."

Applications for the 2020/21 Jameson International Graduate Programme are now open and will close on Wednesday, January 15, 2020 at 1pm.
