They are taking on 100 graduates this year and 90 next year; previously the number would have been closer to 40 or 50 – The increase in numbers is due to the new plant in Naas (see below)
I’m more than happy for someone from the requesting company to give me a shout in relation to the query on Graduate Programmes. We run a small Graduate Programme which spans an initial two year contract during which the graduate does a number of rotations to different businesses and completes a schedule of development programmes. More than happy to discuss this in detail with whom ever.

Hi Grainne, As we are about to assess for the same programme here in Merit Medical Galway, I would be interested in talking to the call out owner and liaise with them.

I would be interested in receiving the details on this request also as we are currently looking at the same issue.
Our thoughts are that we will bring in graduates from an engineering discipline on 2 year fixed term contracts. The graduates will rotate through a number of departments (Quality, Design Engineering, Process Engineering) during the 2 year programme. The decision to retain the graduates at the end of the 2 years will be dependent on suitable engineering opportunities within the organisation at that time. Our thoughts are that we would bring in 3 graduates annually.

Hi Grainne – I’m afraid I can’t be of any help but would be very interested if anyone had insight into the question
