County Dublin +2

Your Future, Accelerated

Explore global opportunities with an ever-expanding business. Reach the highest levels of the commercial world. Go from being a talented, ambitious graduate to being the future of our company. Join DCC to accelerate your future.

Who are we?

DCC is a FTSE 100 company with 14,000 employees working across 40+ businesses in 20 countries. If you haven’t heard of us before, it’s because each of our businesses operates under their own brand and has local senior management teams.

Our intensive programme

Marketing is a vital strategic tool in DCC used to drive sales, grow customer acquisition and create awareness around our value-added services. Join the DCC Marketing Graduate Programme, and you’ll spend two years learning all about it, as you build up knowledge and skills in different companies, different divisions, and potentially different countries as well.

“The DCC Graduate Programme is different because of the variety of opportunities on offer across different companies, industries and geographies. No other programme offers such a range of experiences resulting in you developing incredibly quickly.” – Marketing Graduate

Your opportunity to make a real impact from day one

By bringing our products to life in the eyes of consumers, Marketing plays a key part in our commercial success – and so can you. As a Marketing Graduate, you’ll build brands, develop creative marketing initiatives, and make a visible contribution to our business right from the start.

A typical day could include:

  • Designing and implementing a social media strategy for one of our businesses
  • Managing a business’s own brand ranges
  • Contributing to exhibitions and media campaigns
  • Leading customer acquisition and retention campaigns
  • New product development
  • Developing and executing above the line (ATL) and below the line (BTL) marketing campaigns for brands
  • Enjoying a team lunch or socialising with colleagues after work.

Ongoing development and support

We offer classroom and on-the-job training as well as funding for you to gain a professional qualification or pursue language lessons. There will also be opportunities for you to explore a wide range of career paths, potentially across all four divisions of our diverse Group. Throughout your time on the programme, you will be supported by your Line Manager, a dedicated Coach, a Graduate Buddy, your Graduate Programme Business Contact and the Graduate Programme team.

What we look for

We operate internationally – and you need to be able to do the same, with the unrestricted right to work in the UK, the Republic of Ireland and within the European Economic Area (EEA). Ideally, your degree should have some relation to marketing but it’s not essential. All that matters is that you have a 2:1 or equivalent. You must also have strong team-working, communication and relationship-building skills.
