A Career with Purpose

Health, wellness and nutrition is not just what we do, it’s who we are.  As a global player in nutrition, with operations in 32 countries, Glanbia delivers better nutrition for every stage of life’s journey. We’re passionate about nutrition and ambitious about how we can work to improve it across the world – from farm, to ingredients, to production and ultimately to the end consumer product. Working for Glanbia you’ll play a vital role in helping us shape the future of nutrition globally and you’ll be enabled to reach your full potential and realise your ambitions.  

Developing Emerging Leaders

At Glanbia your performance matters and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make an impact from day one.  Hard work is recognised and rewarded. We value your ideas and encourage you to challenge us to find a better way.

Our Pure Ambition Graduate Programme is positioned strategically within the organisation with a long term view of developing our future leaders.  You’ll receive support to grow a rewarding career through on-the-job development, formal training, international projects or assignments, coaching and mentoring.  In fact, many of our current leaders started their careers as graduates. 

We’re delighted to have won the GradIreland Gold Award for the Best Training and Development Programme in Ireland in 2016, 2017 and 2018!  These awards recognise our commitment to investing in our emerging leaders and creating a world-class experience that delivers on our business growth ambitions. Now, we want to invest in you!

Connect and Grow Together

The Pure Ambition Graduate Programme is more than just work; it’s a global community experience. You’ll be in a unique position to connect, socialise and build relationships with a network of talented people of all levels of the organisation that will benefit you throughout your career.

Happy, healthy employees are those with a strong work-life balance and at Glanbia we continuously strive to deliver initiatives that improve the working environment. There are tons of opportunities to find a balance in a calendar packed with social activities, sporting events, wellness programmes and corporate responsibility initiatives.
