Irish Distillers, makers of some of the world’s most enjoyed whiskeys and Ireland’s leading supplier of spirits and wines, is looking for Westmeath graduates to join the 2021/22 Jameson International Graduate Programme.
Successful graduates will have the opportunity to work as a Jameson Brand Ambassador with a world-renowned Irish whiskey brand, avail of a world-class training and development programme, with extensive career progression opportunities and work in one of over 30 international markets.
Jameson is looking for applicants from Westmeath to follow in the footsteps of Shane Dempsey from Mullingar who is working as a Jameson Brand Ambassador in Dubai, covering U.A.E., Bahrain, Nepal and Qatar.
“If you are looking for a challenging, yet rewarding graduate programme with excellent travel opportunities, I would definitely recommend the Jameson International Graduate Programme. I studied Education in St. Patrick’s College later followed by a Masters in Business and Entrepreneurship in Dublin Institute of Technology.
“After deciding to change careers, I wanted to gain experience working with a business that would push me to my limits. I had heard that the opportunities were fantastic as part of the Jameson International Graduate Programme, so I was encouraged to apply. As a Brand Ambassador, no two days are the same and I have really enjoyed working with new people and cultures and learning how to adapt to their style and ways of working.”
“The application process includes a brief written application and the submission of a supporting two-minute video application. You are encouraged to find your own strengths and weaknesses through making mistakes and learning from great international teams. I would encourage anyone thinking about applying, to do so. And remember, no two ambassadors are the same, so be yourself,” Shane Dempsey, who is currently a Jameson Brand Ambassador in Dubai, said.
Graduates are provided with the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to shape their own experience as part of the Jameson International Graduate Programme, enabling them to hone and develop the skills required to progress their career, while contributing to the global Irish whiskey success story.
