I graduated with a BSc in Bioscience. Once graduated, I was unsure where to start looking for jobs, but thanks to the InterTradeIreland Graduate Programme I was offered a twelve-month position with Morgans Fine Fish. My role within the company was to concentrate on process development and with the help of our academic partners from CAFRE, the successful completion of this project has provided Morgan's with many benefits.
The InterTradeIreland Graduate programme is an excellent opportunity for new graduates to kick start their career by being placed into a management role in their selected company and it provides the graduate with valuable experience and the chance to enhance their skills. Each graduate is provided with a training & development fund that I used to gain qualifications in Internal QMS Auditor, Food Production HACCP Management and Train the Trainer.
Through FUSION, I successfully completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Business and Management in Queens University, Belfast. The course has been very rewarding, I graduated in July 2016 and was proudly presented with the Mary Breslin Award for achieving excellence in my diploma.
I would highly recommend the Programme to graduates as I have gained so much experience and have been offered a permanent position in my company and will continue to contribute my skills to the company that I have developed thanks to the Programme.
