Ten graduates top talent pool to join Devenish development programme

As part of its ongoing drive to identify and nurture new talent, agri technology company Devenish has welcomed 10 graduates into its business as part of a two-year development programme.

Having been shortlisted from over 200 applicants, the 10 participants successfully completed a multi-stage recruitment process to be offered a place on the Devenish Professional Graduate Programme in September 2019.

The graduates, from Maynooth University, Ulster University, UCD, University of Nottingham and Waterford Institute of Technology, will spend time rotating four areas of specialism during their time with Devenish including Business Services, Commercial, Operations and Technical & Nutrition.

They will be given ownership of projects, receive bespoke training and benefit from one-on-one mentoring from an external professional, as well as a competitive salary. They will also be given the opportunity to travel to Devenish’s sites throughout the UK, Europe and USA.

After two years, successful candidates will be offered a permanent role within the company.

"We are delighted to welcome our largest intake of graduates to the business this year," said Ryan Connor, People Development Manager, Devenish.

"This programme not only provides valuable career experience to our participants but also brings the very best new talent into Devenish to help us reinforce our position as a world class provider of nutrition solutions for the feed industry, the food industry and for human health."

Laura Maxwell, a Food and Nutrition graduate from Ulster University, is one of the successful participants:

"The opportunity to work for a pioneering international company like Devenish and develop my area of specialism is one I am grasping with both hands. I am certain the experience will provide a hugely positive springboard for my career, learning from some of the most innovative people in the global agri technology industry."
