Weighing up your post-college options? The Jameson International Brand Ambassador Programme offers a unique way to expand your skills and make your mark on the global stage...
Running for over 30 years – and recognised through the annual Gradireland survey as the #1 FMCG Graduate Employer in Ireland since 2014 – the Jameson International Brand Ambassador Programme opens up an entirely new world of opportunities for both graduates and university-degree-holders in the early stages of their careers.
Constantly keeping up with all the latest industry trends and developments, the programme has broken down barriers with their “skills-first hiring approach” – which focuses on a candidate’s “attitude and aptitude”, rather than the area their degree is in.
As part of the programme – previously known as the Jameson International Graduate Programme – Jameson Brand Ambassadors will have the opportunity to build brand awareness and brand advocacy for Jameson in over 35 international markets, including Spain, India, Korea, China and Japan. Over the past 30 years, the Brand Ambassadors have played a major role in the growth of Irish whiskey on the world stage. Many have remained within the wider network, with some programme alumni progressing into leadership positions within Irish Distillers domestically, and Pernod Ricard globally.
The programme’s award-winning ‘Distill Your Own Success’ development programme provides Brand Ambassadors with the tools and skills they need to hit the ground running when they get to their assigned international market. In addition to the supportive Jameson Brand Ambassador network, Brand Ambassadors are also plugged into a global network of professionals across Irish Distillers and Pernod Ricard, who they can lean on for advice and guidance.
“This culture of mentorship and support has become part of the fabric of the Jameson International Brand Ambassador Programme,” explains Sinéad D’Arcy, head of the programme. “At Irish Distillers, our focus is on supporting and empowering young professionals to become their best self. This focus on personal development results in them thriving professionally.”
This is by no means a typical 9-to-5 role. Brand Ambassadors are given the freedom and flexibility to shape their own work schedule, and are encouraged to carve out space for their physical and mental health. Irish Distillers’ Thrive Wellbeing programme offers employees access to a 24/7 mental health team, mental health coaching, open ended therapy, a digital gym, and more…
