Graduate Programme 2023

Think outside the box

We value the diversity of thought, experiences and background that our Graduate Programme colleagues bring to Bank of Ireland. With that in mind, we seek applications from candidates studying any discipline. So if you are excited about this opportunity and have achieved, or expect to graduate with an undergraduate or Master's degree, then go ahead and apply. You could be exactly what we need!

Ways of Working

At Bank of Ireland we are changing.  We are committed to enabling our colleagues to thrive and offer agile ways of working to maximise choice and flexibility in how we work and live. Varying degrees of optionality apply depending on the role.

Inclusion & Diversity

At the heart of our purpose is our commitment to Inclusion & Diversity: To foster an inclusive working environment where all colleagues are enabled to reach their full potential. We are working to develop a more inclusive and diverse environment, supported by the development of our Employee Support Networks.

Bank of Ireland is the sum of many parts, working together to deliver on our collective strategy.

From business areas involved in the design and sales of our products, serving our customers excellently, or trading on international markets, all parts of the Bank work as one group, one team. Our customer facing and revenue generating teams are supported by colleagues in Operations, Legal, Marketing, Human Resources and many more.

We have a wide range of opportunities for Graduates who are interested in developing their career in a large organisation where the ambition is National Champion status.

When applying, you will have the opportunity to express your key areas of interest.

The Programme

Each programme stream offers a rotational experience across different areas in the Bank. Each rotation is specifically developed to enable Graduates to develop the critical skills that will accelerate your development and growth.

During your three rotations, you will build strong management, interpersonal and technical skills, as well as getting exposure to business critical projects in a fast paced environment.

You are empowered throughout to seek new experiences and expand your network through cross collaboration. You will have the opportunity to experience different areas of the business, or to contribute to meaningful transformation projects that support our Group strategy.

Your final rotation will see accelerated responsibility in your role, applying your learning to date. You will also cap the experience off by taking part in a Graduate project challenge which is supported with funded prizes.

The Opportunity

As part of the programme you will gain exposure to colleagues across numerous business areas allowing you to build a substantial network across the Bank.

Through our unique Digital Academy, you will also be able to explore opportunities and future career paths, as well as receiving top-class mentoring through the Bank of Ireland Mentorship Programme.

Members of the Graduate Programme have strong visibility in Bank of Ireland with regular touchpoints with Leadership, including the CEO and Executive Committee.

Our Graduate Programme is often a feeder into one of Bank of Ireland`s talent programmes which are crafted to accelerate the growth of identified high-performing individuals.

What you will get in return

Each Graduate will embark on a tailored two-year Digital Development Plan to uplift digital skills and capabilities to ensure they are equipped for the Future of Work.

Our hybrid working model offers colleagues greater flexibility in how and where they work, meaning that the traditional 9 - 5 office base will be less prevalent, with work from home, digital collaboration and hot desking options commonplace.

Our Graduates build an outstanding community in Bank of Ireland, and while we are working in a less face to face environment, Graduates will have their own Digital Hangout, which makes it easy to interact, socialise and share ideas with other Graduates.

What we are looking for

We don`t look for any specific technical fields of study in order for you to be successful. We are interested in speaking with a diverse range of people from various academic, societal and geographical backgrounds that will inspire and help us grow as a bank.

We offer opportunities to students who have achieved, or expect to achieve, an Undergraduate or Master`s Degree from all subject areas.
