Get your career off to a great start with An Post

(An Post are currently not recruiting for our Graduate Programme. Future positions will be advertised here in due course)

An Post is changing, from an old world dominated by mail and cash distribution to a new world more focused on e-commerce and financial services.


GradPosts, An Post’s graduate employment programme, has career launching opportunities for ambitious graduates who have achieved, or expect to achieve, a minimum of a 2.2 grade in a relevant degree. The programme is open to candidates who are final year undergraduates and those who have graduated in the last two years. We look for graduates who are able to work strongly in teams, can analyse problems and provide customer and quality focused solutions. An Post’s graduate employment programme covers various roles across a wide range of disciplines. It offers graduates unique learning, training and work opportunities in dynamic commercial environments across a two-year programme.

At An Post we appreciate the value that diversity brings and believe our workforce should be reflective of the customers and communities we serve. That is why we actively welcome applications from people from all backgrounds, and do not discriminate based on gender, age, race, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, membership of the Travelling community, or family status. An Post is committed to having an inclusive workplace where every employee feels they belong.

One company, two businesses

We have restructured our company into two world-class businesses; An Post Commerce and An Post Money, each with its own management team and long-term strategy.

Our An Post Commerce business is rapidly expanding the eCommerce and mail marketing businesses, growing our share of the competitive parcels sector by 40% in 2018.  Our teams throughout Ireland are delivering solutions that make An Post the first choice service provider to many leading national and international companies. The business plays a fundamental role in Irish economic life as the backbone of eCommerce, making sure that communities across Ireland have the same access to goods as in major world cities.

We already manage more cash than any other organisation in Ireland and will seek to diversify and grow our financial and retail services while providing a trusted gateway to government services for our customers, both online and in person. We aim to re-invent the post office network so every town and major village in Ireland has a modern post office, providing the financial technology services our customers need in a cashless society. We are committed to digital transformation and brand rejuvenation so we can offer customer-centred competitive services.
