What's the graduate programme about?

The Jameson International Graduate Programme gives you the opportunity to work for the worlds #1 Irish Whiskey brand. The programme offers you an initial 12-month contract with the opportunity to gain international experience and excellent opportunities for career progression.

The Jameson International Graduate Programme is a brand advocacy programme that gives graduates the opportunity to go abroad to build brand awareness for our world-renowned Irish whiskey with consumers, bartenders and influencers in various countries.

Brand Ambassadors gain experience in fields such as marketing, sales, digital, event management, content creation and much, much more.

Brand Ambassadors work in conjunction with local sales and marketing teams in the planning, development and implementation of the Jameson brand strategy in their respective markets. Brand Ambassadors work across a wide range of marketing activities such as brand education, event management and digital. You’ll work with local brand teams and off your own initiative to be on a first name basis with bartenders, distributors, agencies and influencers alike.

As our Brand Ambassadors come from a variety of backgrounds from law, arts and psychology to business and marketing (to name but a few) we ensure that our four-week induction training programme covers all the bases to make sure our graduates are equipped with the knowledge and tools they need to feel confident moving to their international market to hit the ground running as a Jameson Brand Ambassador.

After your initial four weeks of intensive training in our head office in Dublin and our distillery in Midleton, you will hop on a plane, arrive in your international destination and begin to explore your new home.
