More than two dozen students a year will benefit from a best-in-class introduction to the emerging world of payments through the new Elavon intern and graduate programme starting this summer.
The first intake, of 20 undergraduates, will spend three months working alongside a range of Elavon teams in Dublin, Arklow, Warsaw and London. From September, as the interns finish, eight graduates will start a two-year programme of rotations in technology, strategy, customer services, finance and operations in Ireland and the UK.
“The young students we’ve recruited for our pilot are fantastic thinkers who aren’t afraid to speak their minds,” says Joan Morgan, Head of Recruitment for Elavon Europe.
“We’ll help nuture their aspirations with our buddy system, mentors, and expertise and, on the flip side, we’ll get from them cutting edge thought processes coming fresh from diverse colleges and universities, energising us to keep at the cutting edge.”
Pipeline of potential
“We hope our interns will enjoy the programme so much that they’ll come back each year and progress onto our graduate programme to become our leaders of the future,” says Morgan. “Our programme is absolutely fabulous already, but we’ll be listening to and learning from our interns and graduates and constantly working to make our investment in them the best it can be.
“Our culture is second to none. We're ridiculously friendly and collaborative with a real can-do attitude and support for our interns and grads is coming from right across the business,” says Morgan. “It took a village to get us where we are now, starting in Ireland and the UK, but I already expect, in time, we’ll be expanding to Spain, Poland, Germany, Norway and the other countries we work in.”
