Graduate Profiles

Clare McCann

General Management Programme

“In 2006 I completed my degree in Media Production & Management through DCU and joined the company’s Graduate Management Programme. The diversity of the programme offered an amazing experience and structured training that involved rotating around the various divisions. My favourite position whilst on the graduate programme was in the marketing department, which included events organisation for our customer’s days in Ireland and in the UK. I obtained an ILM cert in management as part of the programme. I obtained knowledge of the different divisions, products etc which aids me greatly in my current role as Sales Analyst. I also utilise the leadership and communication skills I developed on a daily basis.”

Delores McMahon


“I began the accounting graduate programme shortly after completing a MA in Accounting. The programme supported me through the completion of my FAE’s to become a Chartered Accountant and allowed me to grow along with the Company and move into my current role as Divisional Accountant. The programme was challenging for the three years that I was a part of it but was hugely rewarding by allowing me to move from the academic world into the professional working environment.”

David O’Malley

General Management Programme

“After completing my Business Management Degree at QUB in 2008 I commenced a graduate Management Programme with the Company. This entailed working in numerous divisions within the Company over the duration of 3 years. At the end of the programme I was appointed as Raw Materials Coordinator within Quinn Packaging. In November 2013 I commenced my current role as Sales Manager of Flexible Products for Quinn Packaging. This role includes the sale of Shrink/Stretch hoods and Agricultural Silage Wrap. The Graduate Programme has been invaluable to me as I gained first-hand experience in many sectors and it provided me with the necessary skills to work under pressure and prioritize a busy work load.”
