Please elaborate on the training programmes at your company and tell us what skills you’ve picked up.
"I have had great development opportunities as a result of being encouraged to attend various courses and conferences, both internally and externally to the organisation. There is a huge emphasis on learning and developing and a great internal repository of information."Graduate, Naas
"My training was already structured and scheduled when I arrived. I got to spend time with my colleagues and shadow them to see what they do. I've had the chance to get involved in high-level projects, from which I learned a lot about negotiation and communication to get things done."Graduate, Naas
"We did modules in business management in the Irish Management Institute."Graduate, Naas
"Kerry will always help you expand your knowledge - I have attended many workshops and seminars which have been very beneficial."Graduate, Naas
"The company will get behind you and train you where required for new opportunities. I did Investigator Training courses, a Communications Course and I am due to go on an Industrial Relations Course."Entry level, Cork
"I have been given the opportunity to be trained as an internal auditor and carry out training such as HACCP, even though it's not required for my day-to-day role."Graduate, Tenbury
"There are regular graduate training modules: graduates from all the different sites meet up to focus on one functional area of the business and develop skills based around that area."Graduate, Listowel
"Through my training here I have developed my interpersonal skills, such as how to work with a busy manager or influence meetings. These are lifelong and useful for all business functions. Specific training relating to technical items is largely dependent on your manager."Graduate, Rotterdam
"'Open Eyes Days' on the Category Team allows for employees to select one new project/topic/industry area they want to learn about and spend one day per month pursuing an area of interest outside of their day-to-day role."Graduate, London
"Internal and external training is provided for the development of both soft and hard skills. This varies from department-wide training on Excel and PowerPoint, to influencing and partnering skills, leadership and coaching, time management and teamwork."Graduate, London
"There are great development opportunities at Kerry and it is constantly looking to develop its graduates: this is via the learning modules as well as qualifications, and graduates are also urged to take ownership of their own development, with opportunities for those who wish to take them."Graduate, Carrickmacross
