Bord Bia Seek 30 Ambitious Professionals To Represent Irish Food Industry Abroad

Bord Bia and the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School have launched a search for 30 candidates to represent the Irish food industry in overseas markets. Applicants are being sought for two scholarship programmes that combine academic learning with a foreign industry placement.

Successful candidates will undertake assignments in overseas markets on behalf of Irish food and drink companies which have the potential to generate in excess of €20 million in sales for the companies involved over the next three years. 

The programmes are fully funded with participants receiving a bursary of approximately €23,000 in addition to having their tuition fees paid.

Michael Murphy, Director of Markets, Bord Bia said, “These two programmes aim to recruit high potential, ambitious, motivated professionals who have aspirations to become future leaders in the Irish food industry […] Over 75% of past participants now employed in exciting positions in both Irish and international food companies”.

This is the seventh year of the programmes and to date more than 150 participants have taken part. To apply, visit www.smurfitschool.ie/bordbia.
