Nissan is seeking ambitious people from Leitrim who could use a brand new car or van to achieve their dreams of becoming one of the new generation of Irish leaders on the local, national and international stage.

Nissan has launched a nationwide search to find ten ‘Nissan Generation Next’ ambassadors who will each receive a brand new, taxed and insured Nissan of their choice to drive for a year – and anyone from Leitrim can apply to put themselves in the driving seat.

The Nissan Generation Next programme is designed to support ambitious Irish people, from whatever walk of life, who exemplify the drive and determination to succeed in their chosen field and who have what it takes to become tomorrow’s leaders.

“Nissan Generation Next is all about helping the best and brightest on the road to success. It is open to anyone who is passionate, committed and working hard to achieve their goals and we want people from Leitrim to apply,” explained James McCarthy, CEO of Nissan Ireland.

Applicants’ chosen field can include anything be that creating a new business, launching a new product, pioneering scientific research, winning at the top level of sport, having a chart-hitting single, to making it as an actor, top chef, dancer, writer or artist.

The Nissan Generation Next progamme was created last year and the ten members of the Class of 2014, selected from over 650 applicants nationwide, have achieved remarkable success during the past year.

“Our Nissan Generation Next ambassadors are truly inspirational. They only see what is possible and their ability to forge ahead and to find creative solutions to the challenges and obstacles that they encounter is something that we are Nissan are only too happy to support. These people really are the leaders of tomorrow,” said James McCarthy, CEO of Nissan Ireland.

Applicants for the 2015 Nissan Generation Next programme can apply online at www.nissangenerationnext.ie or through the Nissan Generation Next Facebook app and will be requested to outline why they are an ideal candidate for Nissan Generation Next and how Nissan can help them to achieve their goals.
