Graduates get taste of management

By Margaret Canning

Northern Ireland's biggest employer is creating 15 new jobs for graduates as part of its revamped management trainee programme.

Poultry processor Moy Park, which is owned by Brazilian giant Marfrig, said the positions would be for sites across Northern Ireland and England.

The Craigavon-based company employs around 10,500 people across 13 sites in Northern Ireland, England, France and the Netherlands.

Successful candidates will receive a grounding in all aspects of the business, including operations, food development, supply chain, finance, agriculture and IT. Former trainee programmes have been focused on one aspect of the business.

Moy Park would not disclose the salary of the scheme but said it was "excellent and competitive, with benefits".

Mike Mullan, director of human resources, said: "As the company continues to grow we are always looking to the future and realise the need to develop our leaders of tomorrow.

"Our business is fast paced and ever-changing with great opportunities for learning, progression and personal reward."

Mr Mullan said the programme was "the perfect launch pad" for a successful career. "We are looking for ambitious graduates with the drive, energy and confidence to be strong leaders and team players – helping to deliver world-class levels of continuous improvement and performance."

The trainees will experience all aspects of Moy Park's business before developing their career in a particular area.

Graduates with a minimum 2.1 degree (obtained or predicted) in a relevant subject can apply online at before the closing date of March 29.
