You’ll be a valued member of the team

On this programme, you will not be a spectator. You’ll be exposed to significant learning opportunities and will get to know the many aspects of our business.

Tirlán is bigger than the sum of its parts, yet small enough to allow for agility and cross functional collaboration.

You’ll enjoy structured development

We hire graduates for their potential, and do not expect you to know everything. Structured learning is a huge aspect of our programme.

We love to see you develop and strive to provide endless opportunities, through bespoke programmes, on demand learning, summits, mentors, and projects.

We’ll give you a personalised career plan

We provide all the structure you need to grow fast, with a minimum of two job rotations, brand and business exposure, personalised development planning and access to career coaching.

We will support you to achieve the success you want, satisfying your appetite for a meaningful career experience.

You will make a real difference

As Tirlán, we’re setting out to tackle some ambitious new goals. Your impact will truly be felt from the very beginning and will help us shape the future of our business.

This is a new phase for our ambitious cooperative, building on our roots in the past and reaching ambitiously into the future. You will be working with an organisation that invests in farming families all across Ireland and brings world-class nutrition to the global market.

You’ll find a truly human environment

There’s something very different about working at Tirlán. We are community focused and caring. Many say it’s like joining a very large family.
