Graduate Distiller Programme

Demonstrate your practical skills

The Jameson Graduate Distiller Programme offers graduates the chance to kickstart their career in a role with real responsibilities and to demonstrate their practical skills.

Graduates have the opportunity to learn from the masters and work alongside senior production management teams in Cork and Dublin who will provide mentoring and practical, on-the-job training.

This year we are seeking graduates from courses such as Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Process Engineering, Process Technology, Brewing & Distilling.

The Jameson Graduate Distiller Programme offers a challenging but incredibly rewarding two-year placement, with graduates working both independently and collaboratively in cross-functional teams in areas such as:

  • Identifying process improvements and optimisation
  • Developing new product trials and innovations
  • Investigating opportunities for improving energy efficiency
  • Conducting sustainability projects, product life cycle analysis and carbon footprint reduction
  • Brand Ambassador work

Our Company

It has never been a more exciting time to join Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard. In October 2018 a €150 million investment was announced for the upgrading and expansion of our Distillery in Midleton, Co. Cork and further development of our Bottling plant in Dublin.

This recent announcement comes soon after a previous investment of over €200 million in 2013 spent on the expansion of our Distillery and the development of a new whiskey maturation facility in Dungourney, Co. Cork.

Training and Development

Our award-winning Training and Development Programme kicks off with an intensive induction programme in Irish Distillers Head Office, Dublin, where graduates obtain a comprehensive understanding of the Company and the Jameson strategy.

This is followed by a further six weeks intensive training at Midleton Distilleries, where graduates gain an in-depth understanding into the craft of making Jameson Irish Whiskey. On completion of training, graduates are placed either in the Distillery in Midleton, Co. Cork or the Bottling, Supply and Logistics site in Clondalkin, Dublin.

As our business expands and evolves the vision of the Jameson Graduate Distiller Programme is to offer graduates an opportunity to gain responsibility from day one and ensure sustainable growth to allow continued growth and success of the business into the future.
