30 export jobs to be offered on new website

A new website, launched by InterTradeIreland today, www.footinthedoor.info, will be offering 30 export sales jobs later this year through it’s ACUMEN programme. A further 60 positions will also be on offer through its technology transfer progamme, FUSION.

The jobs are located across the island and are open to recent and past graduates, north and south.

The new website will offer access to the latest job details, videos from past graduates on their experience and place to share knowledge and information with other graduates. The social hub within the website will also give current graduates and alumni the opportunity to further engage with one another, raise discussions and share best practice through a dedicated Facebook page.

The FUSION programme offers graduates the opportunity to work for some of the leading innovative companies across the island. They can fast track their career, lead an industry project in the science, technology or engineering sectors, and develop skills with a fully funded postgraduate diploma in management practice from the Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business at UCD in Dublin. Graduates are offered a real opportunity to significantly improve their career prospects coupled with an attractive salary and training package.

To date, 350 participants have graduated from the FUSION programme having gained valuable project management experience with their placement companies. Each InterTradeIreland FUSION project generates, on average, in excess of £1m worth of sales and efficiency savings for the company as a result of cost savings, new product development, increased sales and process improvements.
