Ornua launches global recruitment campaign


Ornua (the Irish Dairy Board) has rolled out a global campaign to attract top talent in its key markets.

Ornua’s mission is to bring the best of Irish dairy, on behalf of dairy farming families in Ireland, to 112 markets across the world and it says its global campaign called ‘Irish Roots; Global Opportunities’ will support the talent drive that Ornua requires to meet its ambitious 2021 targets to sustainably grow Irish dairy exports from current annualised sales of €2 billion to €3 billion in revenue. The campaign is being rolled out in markets including the UK, Germany, Africa, and the US in September and October.

For over 50 years, Ornua has been providing global opportunities and international careers to its 2,000-strong team. Ornua has sales and marketing teams working in-market from 19 subsidiaries across the world from Algiers to Beijing and Lagos to LA. The ‘Irish Roots; Global Opportunities’ campaign will underpin Ornua’s ongoing talent drive across the many functions of the business – finance, operations, sales, marketing, IT and science, among others to support continued business growth.

Unveiling the campaign Majella Darcy, Group HR director, Ornua, said: “Our talent needs are continually evolving and diversifying as we continue to grow as an organisation. We need excellent food scientists and technicians, financial services professionals, marketers, born innovators and future leaders to help us achieve global growth on behalf of Ireland’s dairy farmers. By fostering an environment of collaboration, diversity, innovation and empowerment for our employees, we know our ambitious growth targets are possible.”
