Daniel O’Flynn – Intern in Data Science (Nenagh office)
“Taking part in First Data’s Internship program this Summer has been a fantastic experience. I was Interning in the Nenagh Data Science Department and it is the most enjoyable I have ever had. The office atmosphere has made me enjoy waking up in the morning to come in. My colleagues are kind, fun, professional people. I am proud to say that I have formed a close bond with everyone in the office.
Everyone was extremely helpful and patient when I first came in. Both my managers and colleagues would take time out of their days to bring me “in the loop” on projects.
James Hannon – Intern in eComm (Dublin office)
“I was an intern at First Data as an eCommerce channel development assistant. Before starting here I knew very little about First Data or the payments industry. I was given excellent support and training to get up to speed with the business. Each day is full of new challenges. I’ve met so many wonderful people and everyone is accessible. There’s a great culture in the company and fantastic spirit in the office. This program has been full of excellent opportunities to network and develop interpersonal skills. I’ve learned so much in the short time I’ve been here. It’s been a great experience.”

“My internship with First Data has been a very joyful and fruitful experience for me. I completed my BAI in Computer Engineering and joined First Data’s internship program to gain an understanding of working in a proper industry and to get hands on experience with some of the things we were taught in college. I’m fortunate to say that my three months here didn’t disappoint me. I was able to develop many of skills, learn so many new things and meet some very friendly people here. I was amazed to see the time and effort the HR team and the management invest into the internship program to make our time here a very pleasant experience.”
