It was announced yesterday that Ornua, the owner of Ireland’s dairy brand Kerrygold, is looking for graduates to join their team.
The Ornua Graduate Programme is an 18-month programme which will offer graduates a chance to build a range of business skills, gaining valuable experience in one of Ireland’s most vibrant businesses.
Candidates will undertake two placements as part of the programme, which includes time overseas for most participants.
Headquartered in Dublin, Ornua is Ireland’s largest exporter of Irish dairy products, exporting to over 110 countries worldwide. It operates from 20 plants, including the new-state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Kerrygold Park, and has sales and marketing teams in all corners of the globe.
In 2016, 18 graduates joined the company and, this year, 14 new trainees will form the intake for 2017. Candidates on the Ornua Graduate Programme will receive formal training from the Irish Management Institute (IMI). Every graduate will be individually mentored by a member of Ornua’s senior management team.
Applications for the 2018 Ornua Graduate Programme are open and will close on October 19th 2017. Successful candidates will start in September 2018.
Commenting on the Ornua Graduate Programme, Group HR Director at Ornua, Majella Darcy said, "This is a great opportunity for those who are looking to experience life in a global business, working and living in a new environment. We look after our graduates well and provide ‘best in class’ development, particularly when it comes to providing support, skills, and experience. In return, we expect graduates to perform to a high standard."
