The majority of the apprenticeships this year will be electrical with a small number of HGV mechanic apprenticeships.
We are seeking dynamic people to join the company to help us deliver our 2025 corporate Strategy and beyond.
ESB is well-known for its high-quality apprenticeships which result in qualifications in the electrical and mechanical trades. The ESB Apprenticeship Programme is a keystone for ESB in ensuring that the company maintains the level of skills available for the maintenance and enhancement of Ireland’s electricity system.
Based in the ESB Networks Training Centre in Portlaoise, the electrical apprentices will complete four apprentice training levels totalling 23 weeks training in addition to state training. The four levels in our training centre aim to inspire safety and quality standards in the business.
