The best place to grow and thrive
Our people are the heart of our business. As our greatest asset, they make Musgrave a great place to be and in return we aim to be the very best place to work, grow and thrive. We are one of very few Irish companies owned by its colleagues and family shareholders, and we offer a vast array of career opportunities within our business and our brands. We run some of the largest and most complex IT and business change projects in Ireland and we have the best people on board to deliver them. We thrive on a spirit of enterprise, offering our people diverse, stretching and innovative opportunities. As Ireland’s largest private sector employer, we create and evolve innovative market leading brands, and drive some of the country’s largest projects.
The destination place to work
We want to offer our people the best experience we possibly can as an employer of choice and a ‘destination place to work’ where talent is supported, developed and nurtured. We know that to attract new talent and to retain the skilled staff we already have, we have to maintain a workplace that colleagues enjoy and feel happy working in. For example, our Be Well, Work Well initiative provides our people with the opportunity to focus on their health and wellbeing in the workplace. Find out more about our current vacancies.
Investing for the long-term
When we talk about the people who make our brands, we don’t just mean the people who work directly for Musgrave – we also mean the relationships we have with our retail partners, their people, the local communities they serve, and our suppliers. Together with our retailers we employ more than 45,000 people and in Ireland alone we have 35,000 employees working in our stores, our offices and our warehouses.
Culture of engagement
We seek out outstanding individuals that we can stretch, challenge, and support to ensure they meet their career ambitions while enabling us to deliver positive business growth. Because we value our people so highly, training of our staff has always been important. In 2016 we launched the largest training and development initiative the business has seen with the support of Breakthrough Global. The aim was to drive culture change by encouraging an entrepreneurial mindset across the business. This has been transformational, ramping confidence, innovation and engagement across the company. The programme was awarded the accolade of Best Leadership Development Initiative at the prestigious IITD National Training Awards.
We are proud of the fact that many people start their careers with Musgrave and stay with us throughout their working life. Our award-winning Graduate Programme has a strong track record in developing talented leaders within the business. Former graduates hold a range of roles from director to financial controller. We believe this is down to the delivery of our Graduate Programme, providing each recruit with real hands-on experience, plenty of responsibility and a rotation around the organisation allowing them to build a strong commercial sense for the business as a whole. Our programme is developing the entrepreneurs of the future and our graduates are helping us to build the brands of tomorrow. Find out more about our Graduate Programme.
Diversity and inclusion
We believe that embracing diversity helps create a culture that fosters individual contribution and achievement. We are committed to providing equal opportunities for those applying for or in employment, regardless of individual differences such as gender, ethnic origin, disability, sexual orientation, age, social background, religion and beliefs. We take pride in ensuring that all colleagues are treated with respect, honesty and fairness.
