Grow With Us

Musgrave is the launchpad for all sorts of exciting careers. If you have a love for good food, a passion for a business, or a desire to help us build sustainable communities, you’ll fit right in.

Our market-leading brands include SuperValu, Centra, MarketPlace, Daybreak and Frank and Honest . We feed 1 in 3 people in Ireland — that makes us the Republic’s leading food business. However, like our network of entrepreneurial food partners and the budding start-ups we support, we never stand still, and neither do our people.


We are proud of our talented people and our graduates are no exception. We know our success is aligned to the support we offer our people. We don’t expect you to know everything straight away, but we do expect you to meet your performance objectives and realise your full potential while living the Musgrave values in your everyday work.

Our grads get to work straight away on a huge number of challenges and opportunities. Whether it’s designing a new product launch or building our digital presence, sorting the supply chain or transforming our retail environments, you’ll be both stretched and challenged. But you’re backed up the whole way by a dedicated team responsible for your development.

Your ideas will be taken seriously – and could lead to innovation and positive impact, in the real world.

Our award winning Graduate Development Programme is delivered in conjunction with the Irish Management Institute (IMI). This is delivered over two years and features core business modules as well as executive coaching and guest speakers from the business.

Depending on the graduate stream, you may work in at least two of our divisional headquarters over the course of the programme.

We are committed to on-going talent development at every level and we are proud to have a strong track record of developing our graduates to senior positions within the business.

And given only a select group join us each year, you won’t be just another face in the crowd. In fact, you’ll have direct access to senior leaders and even get to present to our CEO. What are you waiting for?

What next?

We expect academic excellence and an instinct for business. Our opportunities vary depending on our business needs. A minimum of a 2.1 honours degree will bring you through to our application process which includes online assessments, video interview and assessment centres.
