ARAMARK Ireland, the catering and facilities management company, has begun its nationwide search for ambitious and eager candidates for its newly launched Graduate Development Programme and is calling on interested candidates in the Mayo area to apply. In October 2008, four people will begin a challenging and exciting year, training for a post as regional manager within ARAMARK Ireland.
ARAMARK’s Graduate Development Programme is open to those with experience in the catering/hospitality industry, including current employees. Graduates will assume the role of trainee manager and embark on a 12-month training programme, gaining in-depth knowledge and understanding of the business through a series of challenging projects and work-based tasks.
This period of training will include four three-month placements at one of ARAMARK’s sites across Ireland in a number of lines of business including education, healthcare and business. The selected sites for this programme include Queens University (Belfast ), Mary Immaculate College (Limerick ), MBNA (Carrick-on-Shannon ), Hertz (North County Dublin ), University College Hospital Galway and the Guinness Storehouse (Dublin City ).
Following the 12-month programme, participants will be offered suitable employment in the company, with the potential to be responsible for a considerable team, prestigious clients and to have full accountability for the financial and commercial operation of ARAMARK lreland’s business. As ARAMARK is a global company, successful trainees can look forward to endless possibilities for promotion worldwide.
The programme will be co-ordinated by ARAMARK Ireland’s newly appointed Learning and Development Specialist, Derek Carter. Speaking at the launch of the graduate programme, Derek said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for graduates who have an interest in progressing their careers in the hospitality sector. We pride ourselves on the calibre and talent of our people and to sustain our future growth, we will be focusing on both growing our leaders from within and recruiting the very best from industry. Our Graduate Development Programme will combine both of these approaches for great results.”
