Your Future is our Future

Looking for a career where you will feel engaged and valued? Interested in working with a team who are focused on building brighter futures in our communities? We’re looking for graduates who are passionate, driven and committed to our market leading partnerships. Our graduate programme offers you the opportunity to discover your own brand of success while contributing to our communities.

Partnering For Success

Our business model is all about partnering for success. As a family-owned business, we work with thousands of other family businesses and their local communities in Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Spain. Through our support of local initiatives, we aim to enrich everyday lives, make communities vibrant, and provide shoppers with an offer that is different and better.

What makes us different is a team of extraordinary retailers, great grocery brands that are online and around the corner and colleagues who invest in our business because we invest in them. Our foodservice and wholesale brands meet the needs of independent retailers, hoteliers and restaurant owners. We are about growing good business through fresh food leadership, range innovation and embracing technology to make life simpler for our retail partners and their customers.

Every aspect of our business is informed by our values which are focussed on long-term stable relationships, not being greedy, honesty, working hard and achievement.

Your Future

We are proud of our talented people and our graduates are no exception. We know our success is aligned to the support we offer our people. We don’t expect you to know everything straight away, but we do expect you to meet your performance objectives and realise your full potential while living the Musgrave values in your everyday work.

You will have a role with real responsibility from the outset with support and access to the senior managers in the business. Your development will include working on business projects throughout the programme and you will present your final year project to our CEO and Divisional Directors.

Our Graduate Development Programme is delivered in conjunction with the Irish Management Institute (IMI). This is delivered over two years and features core business modules as well as executive coaching and guest speakers from the business.

Depending on the graduate stream, you may work in at least two of our divisional headquarters over the course of the programme.

We are committed to on-going talent development at every level and we are proud to have a strong track record of developing our graduates to senior positions within the business.

What next?

We expect academic excellence and an instinct for business. Our opportunities vary depending on our business needs so check our website for 2017 opportunities. A minimum of a 2.1 honours degree will bring you through to our application process which includes online assessments, video interview and assessment centres
