BA History & Politics from UL

I joined the Bank of Ireland Graduate Programme as it provides exposure across all elements of the HR Workstream and as such it affords me the opportunity to enhance my skillset in multiple areas.

I like the fact I can gain experience working on large-scale and important projects, while working with expert professionals who provide valued mentorship.
