Look After Yourself

Our Be at your Best programme can help you be at your best around three pillars of wellbeing - mind, body and career.

Focus on personal development

We don't think learning should stop when you leave university. That's why, we will continue to support your personal development. 

Volunteering

Alongside our commitment to our charity partners, we donate a day a year for you to give back to your community and help a charity or cause you’re truly passionate about.


 

We're proud of our industry praise, almost as much as we are of our grads.

There's more to life than work

 

Our Be At Your Best programme promotes and supports you in your career development and personal wellbeing. The programme involves all staff in the design and delivery of its activities, such as the Couch to 5k challenge, yoga classes and 5-a-side to name but a few. You can also attend regular information sessions on health, nutrition, wellbeing and motivation.

The Bank was a winner at the Chambers Ireland CSR Awards, taking the "Excellence in the Workplace" top prize for Be At Your Best.

Bank of Ireland also won the "Champion Wellness Strategy" award at the 2016 Irish HR Champion Awards for our Working Together initiative which encourages our colleagues to work together to make it easier for our customers to do business with us.

You get a lot. You give a lot too.

 

Our CSR programme is a key part of what we believe makes us, us. Our colleagues have always been keen to support their favourite charities and good causes, through local initiatives or large-scale events.

Our charity and community investment programme, Give Together, supports colleagues who wish to fundraise or volunteer for important causes in their lives. They can avail of one day’s paid leave each year to volunteer and can also apply to have any fundraising matched up to certain limits.

In 2015, our colleagues volunteered over 1,000 days, generating €2.5 million in matched fundraising, payroll giving and other charitable contributions. In 2015, Bank of Ireland ranked first among companies in Ireland for the generosity of its workforce.
