Irish Examiner - Supplement - - FOOD & DRINK IRELAND - GLAN­BIA

The global nu­tri­tion group Glan­bia has cre­ated 50 new jobs through its in­no­va­tive 2017 ‘Pure Am­bi­tion’ Grad­u­ate Pro­gramme.

The roles in­clude op­por­tu­ni­ties for grad­u­ates in ar­eas in­clud­ing ac­count­ing, fi­nance, com­puter sci­ence and it, dig­i­tal me­dia, en­gi­neer­ing, pro­cure­ment, sup­ply chain, mar­ket­ing, hu­man re­sources and food, nu­tri­tional and agri­cul­tural sci­ence. Suc­cess­ful can­di­dates work as part of global teams in a fast-paced, in­ter­na­tional en­vi­ron­ment, with op­por­tu­ni­ties for travel and work place­ments in over­seas mar­kets through­out the pro­gramme.

In the last four years, Glan­bia has sig­nif­i­cantly ex­panded its grad­u­ate pro­gramme with an im­pres­sive 220 grad­u­ates pass­ing through in to­tal.

Dur­ing this time, Glan­bia has grown as a suc­cess­ful global nu­tri­tion group with mar­ket lead­ing mar­ket po­si­tions in whey pro­teins, mi­cronu­tri­ent pre­mixes and the multi- bil­lion dol­lar sports nu­tri­tion mar­ket.

Since 2010, Glan­bia has de­liv­ered six con­sec­u­tive years of dou­ble digit growth and is now present in more than 32 coun­tries around the world, with its prod­ucts sold in more than 130 coun­tries glob­ally.

Michael Pat­ten, group hu­man re­sources and cor­po­rate af­fairs di­rec­tor, said: “Through the launch of our 2017 Grad­u­ate Pro­gramme, we are seek­ing high cal­i­bre, am­bi­tious grad­u­ates who as­pire to help us de­liver on our vi­sion to be one of the world’s top per­form­ing global nu­tri­tion com­pa­nies. Our grad­u­ate pro­gramme of­fers a world- class tal­ent ex­pe­ri­ence where our peo­ple are chal­lenged to in­no­vate and de­liver real im­pact ev­ery day. If you are a grad­u­ate in the dis­ci­plines we are look­ing for, with am- bi­tions to be a global player and if you can iden­tify with our val­ues, then we would like to hear from you.”

Rose Mary Ho­gan, head of Glan­bia grad­u­ate re­cruit­ment and de­vel­op­ment, said op­ti­mis­ing the com­pany’s tal­ent pool re­quires shar­ing ideas and in­sights.

She said: “We want to un­lock our grad­u­ates’ poten- tial and em­power them to grow in their roles. Through con­tin­u­ous learn­ing in dif­fer­ent en­vi­ron­ments we are con­fi­dent that we are help­ing grad­u­ates take a first step in a re­ward­ing ca­reer and cre­at­ing fu­ture lead­ers for our or­gan­i­sa­tion.”

Glan­bia grad­u­ates are men­tored and sup­ported through con­tin­u­ous on-the- job de­vel­op­ment, as well as for­mal train­ing, work­ing with the best peo­ple and the lat­est tech­nolo­gies.

This sup­ports them on their journey to at­tain­ing pro­fes­sional sta­tus within their cho­sen spe­cial­i­ties, as well as devel­op­ing broader tech­ni­cal, busi­ness and project man­age­ment skills and cer­ti­fi­ca­tions>

Glan­bia has en­joyed dou­ble-digit growth ev­ery year since 2010; the Glan­bia Grad­u­ate Pro­gramme has given in­valu­able prac­ti­cal train­ing to more than 220 grad­u­ates.
