Steps outlined below
Online applications for both Jameson Graduate Programmes open the last week in September each year. The application process includes a brief written application and the submission of a supporting 2-minute video application. Both elements provide you with the chance to show us you have serious character and tell your story, your way.
The closing date for both programmes differ so be sure to check, and double check, the closing date for the programme you are interested in. For successful applicants both programmes have a start date in mid-July each year.
International Graduate Programme
To apply for this 3-year rotational programme you can have studied any discipline. We currently have graduates from disciples that range from law to archaeology, drama studies to Arts on our programme. While we don’t mind what you have studied you must have a full, clean driving licence, or be in the process of attaining one, to apply for this programme. We hire for 8 main languages: French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese and Japanese. While it’s preferable to speak an international language, it is by no means a requirement and there are plenty of English-speaking markets, such as the UK, Canada, US and Australia.
Distiller Graduate Programme
For this programme you must have a degree in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Process Engineering, Process Technology, Brewing & Distilling. Whilst having a full, clean driving licence is preferred, it's not required for this programme.
