Making sure our graduates are as well-prepared as possible to take on their new roles is crucial.
10% of our training model is what we call ‘formal training’, showcased through various workshops throughout the year. There are two major formal learning events; the 4-week Induction Training Programme for incoming graduates, which takes place annually in the month of August between our Head Office in Dublin and the Irish Whiskey Academy in Cork, and the Global Ambassador Summit, held in early January each year.
Our award-winning 4-week Induction Training Programme prepares our new graduates to execute the Jameson brand strategy in their new market with excellence. Incoming graduates learn about the history, heritage and production process behind our world-renowned Irish whiskey, the marketing strategy behind its recent growth, digital marketing, brand activation and many other areas.
The Global Ambassador Summit (or ‘GAS’ as it’s fondly known) is a 3-day learning event where the Jameson International Brand Ambassadors from Years 1 to 3 come together to share ideas, give updates on their markets and learn about upcoming strategy for the Jameson whiskey brand globally. During GAS we recognise and reward graduate’s success through the Jameson Graduate Programme Awards The Jemmies.
