The IT Graduate Programme appealed to me because of the three, eight month rotations. I knew that I’d be getting a unique view of the business and solid foundation to build on.
The approach and attitude towards learning is one of the aspects I’ve enjoyed most. The continuous guidance that is offered lets me know that Bank of Ireland cares about my professional and personal development. Events ranging from workshops, graduate projects, off-site days, both instructor-led training and online learning courses, is just a sample of what I’ve been exposed to thus far.
