Glen Dimplex

Graduate Development Programme

Tailored Training for The Leaders of Tomorrow

A Unique Group

Founded in Ireland in 1973, Glen Dimplex is a leading international Group. Consistent commitment to research and innovation, allied to a policy of prudent strategic acquisition, has seen us grow to become one of Ireland’s largest privately owned Groups.

Today Glen Dimplex is the world's largest manufacturer of electrical heating, and holds significant global market positions in renewable energy technologies, domestic appliances, cooling,  ventilation and heat-recovery systems.

A Unique Opportunity

With our portfolio of category-leading brands and our unrivalled range of low carbon technologies, the Glen Dimplex Group is strategically positioning for sustained growth into the future.

The world is evolving at an extraordinary rate. Overcoming the future business and environmental challenges will require constant innovation and truly imaginative leadership.  This is why we need your help.

The Programme

Your programme will be tailored specifically to reflect your particular background, aptitudes and aspirations.  The programme will be structured to allow you to gain experience and take on responsibilities across a wide range of business-critical disciplines:

  • Research and Development
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Manufacturing
  • Manufacturing Finance
  • Corporate Finance
  • Purchasing

For the first year you will be based at one of our Irish facilities, while three additional placements of four months each will be spent in a variety of international locations to be selected by you in conjunction with your lead mentor.  Ultimately the Graduate Development Programme will conclude with a placement in a line management position.

Despite the dynamic nature and scale of our Global Operations, one of the benefits of being privately owned is the unique nature of the Glen Dimplex organisation and its culture.   This means you will have ongoing access to and support from our Senior Managers.  Our key objective is to provide you with a personalised, hands-on learning experience that will enable you to fully develop your potential.

Our Culture

You have worked hard to get where you are today.   At Glen Dimplex we promise you more of the same. We operate a uniquely devolved organisational structure, where people are encouraged to do the hard yards, take personal responsibility and think creatively.  We do not stand still, neither will you.

Ours is a people-oriented business, with no bureaucracy.  We provide an environment where people have the freedom to make decisions and to learn from their mistakes, as well as their successes, and take pride in those successes.

Apart from our formal training programmes, your career will advance through working with industry leaders who are keen to help you learn. You will be given challenging projects that will allow you to succeed with as much or as little guidance and assistance as you require.

Who Should Apply?

The Glen Dimplex Graduate Training Programme offers successful candidates the opportunity to gain business insights, international perspective and invaluable real-world experience.

We are seeking truly outstanding people to join us on an exciting journey, people with the talent and potential to become the business innovators and leaders of tomorrow. We would like to hear from you if you are a final year student and expect to graduate with a minimum of a high level 2.1 in a discipline such as:

  • Engineering
  • Business
  • International Marketing

Strong language skills will be a significant advantage.
