As part of the two-year programme, graduates will work alongside a
world-class whiskey production team with state-of-the-art technology
in a challenging but rewarding placement that offers real
responsibilities, structured learning, defined rotations, and project

The programme offers placements at either Midleton Distillery, Cork,
or at Irish Distillers’ bottling operations plant in Dublin, where the
world’s best-selling Irish whiskeys are created and bottled before
being exported around the globe.

Mairead Griffin, Head of Talent Acquisition at Irish Distillers said:
“Applications close on Thursday 29th October and we at Irish
Distillers would like to encourage as many engineering graduates as
possible to consider applying for the programme. We have a history of
supporting and nurturing young talent and want to leverage this
experience to support the next generation of engineers through the
Jameson Engineering Graduate Programme. Engineers play a fundamental
role in the distillation and bottling processes, and we want to make
sure that we have a pipeline of talent to meet our business needs, now
and in the future.”

“We already have a team of capable and talented engineers within the
business who have risen up through the ranks. Our production
leadership teams are ready to support and guide our new engineering
graduates through the two-year programme. In Cork, graduates will
build technical expertise with both theoretical and practical
technical training on distillation pots, distillation columns,
vessels, pumps, valves and instrumentation, boilers, conveyor belts,
heat exchangers and automation control systems. While graduates in
Dublin will have the opportunity to engage with and receive training
on our fully automated state of the art process systems and packaging
equipment.” added Mairead.

“The programme is designed to give graduates ownership of their career
aspirations, supported by practical experience and training to help
them succeed. We are looking for curious self-starters, who view a
challenge as an opportunity. We see the successful candidates as
having the desire to turn a job into a passion.” she concluded.

Graduates will also attend the Irish Whiskey Academy, a
state-of-the-art training facility located in County Cork on the
grounds of Midleton Distillery, which focuses on the production and
heritage of Irish whiskey produced at Midleton.

onboarding, rotations, professional skills development, a mentoring
and buddy framework, project work, and technical skills development.
