I graduated with a BSc in Bioscience and was offered a twelve-month position with Morgans Fine Fish through the graduate programme. 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 Morgans 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. I have gained so much experience and have secured a permanent position in my company. I will continue to contribute to Morgans Fine Fish using the skills I have developed thanks to ‘FUSION’.
