ESB have announced 300 new apprenticeships.

Apprenticeships, Education, Skills


I was delighted to join with the Tanaiste Joan Burton in launching 300 new apprenticeships at the ESB in Portlaoise this morning.

The CEO of the ESB, Pat O’Doherty, who also Chairs the Apprenticeship Council, is leading by practical example in his company.

I hope the work of the Apprenticeship Council, under Pat’s leadership, will mean many more new apprenticeships on offer by the end of this year/early 2016.

The ESB is recruiting 300 apprentices over the next five years, as part of a €40m investment in the utility’s training and development programme.

Network Technician apprentices will get 23 weeks of training at the ESB training centre in Portlaoise as part of their four year electrical apprenticeship.

The deadline for application is 13th March 2015.
