Mercury Graduate Programme Receives GradIreland nomination for second year running
Mercury is delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for a GradIreland Recruitment award, in the Best Graduate Training and Development Programme – Specialist/Professional Training Programmes category.
This is the second successive year that Mercury has received a nomination for these awards, which celebrate and recognise excellence and innovation in graduate recruitment.
The awards are adjudicated by an expert panel of judges and the votes of over 13,000 undergraduates in Ireland.
This year represents the 15th edition of the gradireland Graduate Recruitment Awards and winners will be announced in the coming weeks.
At Mercury, we are committed to recruiting the best people and developing them to become the leaders of tomorrow. We invest in the training and development of our team and provide the support and experience you need to fulfil your potential.
Our Graduate Programme has proved greatly successful in empowering our graduates to develop the vital skills and competencies needed for a lasting career with us. We are committed to engaging and progressing new skills and knowledge through a combination of on-site, office-based, project-specific experience, experiential learning and formal training, providing our graduates with insights and experience across the business.
Mercury has been recognised by Grad Ireland as one of Ireland’s leading graduate employers and last year saw our largest ever intake of 55 graduates and were nominated for Grad Ireland’s Graduate Employer of the Year award for 2020. This was achieved despite the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic and further showcases our adaptability and innovation. We are determined to increase our uptake of graduates again this year and are committed to providing a rewarding and challenging programme, with an exciting range of graduate positions across the company.
Our structured training & graduate programme takes two years. The development programme is designed to set the demands of the working world as would be experienced by graduates. The courses are delivered by external and internal subject-matter experts in a dedicated learning environment. We have a strong link with Engineers Ireland, and we support graduates who wish to pursue Chartered Engineer status. Each Graduate is assigned a mentor in their first year and an executive coach in their second.
