Think outside the box

We value the diversity of thought, experience 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 are expected to achieve, a minimum 2:1 Honours Degree or Masters, 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 wants to be recognised as a world class provider of superior customer service. In order to do this we must make it easy for our customers to do business with us by providing ease of access to services through multiple channels and developing innovative process improvements to enhance the customer experience. Our Customer Solutions Programme will provide successful applicants with the opportunity to get a real all-round insight to each of our businesses and be part of designing innovative solutions for our customers.


The opportunity

Successful applicants will take on a number of challenging rotations during the two year programme across our business from our Customer Service proposition, to our Digital and Innovation journey, as well as our Operations and Payments businesses.

It is a fast paced and ever evolving area and we are seeking talented, innovative and motivated graduates to join our diverse team.

Over the course of the programme you will gain first-hand knowledge and practice of applying the principles of continuous improvement, lean operations and project management.

What you can expect in return

As part of your time on the programme you will manage a number of projects to support the Working Together agenda, collaborating with stakeholders at all levels. Working Together is our people framework to deliver on the division’s key priority areas.

As well as this, all of our Customer Solutions Graduate Programme participants get the chance to undertake our Diploma in Banking, Operations & Digital which is in conjunction with UCD and the Institute of Banking.

Previous graduates have gone on to challenge for and secure Business Analyst roles right across the business, supporting innovative and dynamic change programmes.

B.Comm, University College Cork

A friend who is currently on the Graduate Programme with Bank of Ireland recommended the Programme to me. Since starting on the Bank of Ireland Graduate Programme, I feel the level of trust and responsibility given to me demonstrates strongly the value placed on Graduates within Bank of Ireland. Everyone I have met and worked with has been very willing to share their experience and knowledge with me. We have regular meetings with our team and we discuss both my professional and personal development and this has facilitated a smooth transition from university life to professional life.

I work with great people. My team were recently recognised at a staff awards event which demonstrates how much Bank of Ireland values team work and excellence.
