Ireland's 100

The gradireland Ireland's 100 student survey is the biggest and most comprehensive annual research on student opinions on graduate careers, employers and their own views on the world of work. This year was our biggest survey yet, with almost 21,000 students and graduates taking part, from institutions throughout Ireland, north and south. The Ireland's 100 Leading Graduate Employer rankings offers an insight into the companies and organisations that are most appealing to students.

Here you'll find a list of the top 100 graduate employers in Ireland, as chosen by Irish students. Arrows indicate whether an employer has risen or fallen in the rankings compared to previous years.
