Recently recruited team members from Limerick gathered in Dell’s Cherrywood campus in Dublin for a special Dell All Ireland Grad & Intern Day’ aimed at fostering a culture of innovation and collaboration.
The event’s attendees have joined Dell from over twenty third level institutes within the past twelve months. They are working in fields as varied as IT, engineering, supply chain, project management, sales, technical support, finance and HR across three campuses in Cork, Dublin, and Limerick.
The large number of attendees enjoyed a full schedule of activities including networking and career development sessions, problem-solving challenges which encouraged transformative thinking, and talks by senior Dell leaders including Aongus Hegarty, EMEA President, Dell EMC and Dermot O’Connell, Vice-President, OEM and IoT Solution EMEA, Dell EMC.
Denis Lucey, Vice-President of Commercial Support Services EMEA and Site Leader, Dell Cherrywood, said: “We are delighted to welcome 120 graduates and interns to our campus in Cherrywood for our ‘Grad & Intern Day’ celebrations. All have joined the company in the last year and their creativity, energy and enthusiasm is infectious. They are based at Dell Ireland’s campuses in Dublin, Cork, and Limerick and this is a fantastic opportunity to enhance links of collaborations across all our teams.
“For Dell, hiring new graduates and interns allows for fresh innovative thinking to enter the company. It also allows us as an organisation to learn new creative ways to look at a problem and potential solutions to these business cases. Over the past three years, we have transformed our graduate strategy in line with Michael Dell’s 2020 goal of hiring 25% of all external hires as graduates to ensure we are attracting the best, well-grounded graduate talent.”
Included in this year’s intake were a number of students of the Stem Aspire programme, an innovative mentoring programme connecting female students with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines with female mentors at Dell. The objective of the programme is to inspire female students by the power of STEM subjects in opening up endless opportunities in the tech sector.
Recruitment for 2019 graduate and intern roles will kick off this September, with the #DellonTour team visiting college campuses around Ireland.
