The successful applicant will get to drive a brand new, taxed and insured Nissan of their choice for one year as one of ten Nissan Generation Next ambassadors, following in the footsteps of the famous Skibbereen brothers.

The Nissan Generation Next car ambassador programme supports people from all walks of life who could use a new Nissan car or van to follow their dream and to realise their potential of becoming Ireland’s next generation of leaders and champions.

World rowing champion Paul O’Donovan said: ‘Nissan saw the potential in us to go all the way and that spurred us on. Their support made life far easier and time efficient for us. Time is money in this sport and in the end we were able to pick up the results that mattered. Dream big and apply. Your dream may well come true with Nissan.’

Applicants can apply online at up to Wednesday, May 17th 2017. Family and friends can also make applications on behalf of individuals whom they consider to be an ideal Nissan Generation Next ambassador.

A shortlist of 20 candidates will be announced soon after and put forward to a public vote. 

The seven individuals generating the largest number of votes will win a place on the Nissan Generation Next ambassador programme. The judges at Nissan will select three of the remaining candidates to join them.
