Mid level, Waterford
"Internal promotion is the main way by which we fill vacancies wherever possible. As such, promotion opportunities are very strong across the business as we continue to expand our operations. To be considered for promotion a candidate must excel in their current position and have the necessary drive and ambition to take their performance to the next level."
Experienced, Letterkenny
"The position I am in is a relatively senior one that would take a number of years and a lot of experience to attain in most companies. There are a number of different career progression paths including secondments, taking various projects, or moving on to becoming a director. There has been evidence of all of these occurring after five years with a number of area managers who have proved themselves to be capable. Recruitment for senior positions occurs from within."
Graduate, Cork
"As I occupy a senior position at present the promotional opportunities above me are limited and so can take a number of years to reach. Successful colleagues must be exceptionally hardworking, capable, target driven and detail oriented."
Graduate, Naas
