Darrell Evans

Principal Product Manager

"On leaving Dublin in 2001, I was concerned that I would not find a suitable role in the South East. I can comfortably say that I have found a challenging and rewarding career with Sun Life. The variety and extent of roles under one company is vast and the experience I have gained since joining has positively enhanced my career experience."

Aaron Tierney Smith

Engineer Trainee

"My studies at SETU has served me well since beginning my career at Sun Life. I took part in the Sun Life awards and it was an excellent opportunity to present my final year project to my peers, my lecturers and people working in the industry."

"Since beginning at Sun Life, it has been great to see that the material covered in my undergraduate has stood to me. I am thoroughly enjoying my time at Sun Life, and have found myself working on some interesting projects. Beginning your career can be daunting and terrifying, but when I started with Sun Life it was a very warm welcome."

Nicole KC Osita

Information Security Specialist

"The Horizon Programme was my catalyst. I remember leaving my horizon interview and being amazed by the positive attitude that radiated from the building and through the people who worked there. As a young Christian woman, I knew it was a safe environment and that I was going to work here. I took every opportunity that presented itself to make that possible."

"My mentor was a Godsend. I was shown different IT groups in Sun Life and that help broaden my knowledge of what I could do with my degree. She also helped to create an optimistic attitude around being a woman in tech which before seemed like a daunting role that I wasn’t sure I was prepared for."

"The Horizon programme really became an advantage and allowed me to get my foot back in the door twice. First as an Intern, where I gained practical real-life experience with my degree. And then as a full-time employee on a different team where I can play to my strengths and be surrounded by likeminded people."
