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.
The closing date for applications is the 31st of October 2020.
