Enterprise Ireland

Applications are now closed for our 2017 programmes. 


Enterprise Ireland is the Government agency responsible for the development and growth of Irish enterprises in world markets. We work in partnership with Irish enterprises to help them start, innovate and scale and win export sales on global markets. In this way, we support sustainable economic growth, regional development and secure employment. Enterprise Ireland works with Irish enterprises across the full business development spectrum, from early-stage entrepreneurs to established companies and Irish multinational companies, supporting them to grow their business, which is fundamental to creating and maintaining jobs in Ireland.

In 2016 we recruited for the following graduate programmes:

• Enterprise Ireland’s Graduate Programme:

This is a two year, Ireland-based Graduate Programme that offers graduates an opportunity to work with Irish enterprises as part of a professional and dynamic team, contributing to our companies’ successes and therefore supporting sustainable economic growth. As Development Executives, our graduates work with our client companies through all stages of business development, from start-up, to established small and medium-sized enterprises and Irish multinational companies with the ambition to achieve growth and scale. These graduates play a key role in helping Enterprise Ireland to deliver on the vision for Irish business to become a powerhouse of economic growth and job creation.

• Enterprise Ireland’s International Graduate Programme:

This is a two year International Graduate Programme that offers graduates the opportunity to start their career in one of Enterprise Ireland’s network of locations across Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific and to gain experience supporting Irish enterprises as part of a professional and dynamic team. As Market Executives, our graduates contribute to the success of our client companies by supporting them to access market opportunities, win global sales and build and develop their business in global markets. These graduates also play a key role in helping to create market awareness and building Ireland’s positive image as an international source of world-class products and services.

Are these opportunities for you?

These challenging roles require confident individuals who are professional, client focussed, and highly motivated with the energy and enthusiasm to deliver projects and results. Excellent communications, network and relationship-building skills, coupled with a teamwork and flexible approach are essential
