Energise your future with ESB Networks who is looking to recruit electrical apprentices to join their  Apprenticeship Programme. Applications will be accepted online until Monday, 8th April.

Open to applicants born on or before June 1, 2008, the four-year paid programme combines college-based learning and hands-on experience within the organisation. Upon completion, apprentices obtain a QQI Advanced Level 6 Electrical Trade Certificate, which is recognised internationally.

With a blend of classroom-based education and practical training, apprentices will benefit from a hands-on learning experience while enjoying the versatility of working both indoors and outdoors, gaining exposure to various electrical systems and environments.


Aimie Mallon, an apprentice on the ESB Networks programme, shared what drew her to the apprenticeship and her experience to date.

“Prior to starting my apprenticeship with ESB Networks, I studied Security Systems Technology at Waterford College of Further Education. I was drawn to ESB Networks because of the opportunity to work in and outdoors, the variety of the job, the organisations prestigious reputation, and its record for health and safety.

“Since starting, I’ve enjoyed both the hands-on experiences and the theoretical work. Collaborating as a team to bring electricity back to customers after a storm is a wonderful feeling. I would strongly recommend the apprenticeship to anyone looking for an interesting and adventurous career in the electrical industry”.
