Meet Some Of The Team

HeadshotHaving first started as an electrical apprentice and then completing the engineering graduate programme, ESB has played a pivotal role in my professional development. The continuous training and encouragement received throughout my career with ESB has afforded me the ability and confidence to push myself to try new things. Over the years I have taken on more responsibility in my role, engaging with people from different business units and at different levels across the company.

Engineering and Major Projects TeamWithin Engineering & Major Projects, I’ve enjoyed the range of projects I’ve been exposed to and the responsibility that was placed on me as a young engineer while in Ireland and while posted in Bahrain. The work has been challenging but through the support by colleagues and the provision of professional training it has allowed me to develop. Through the Brighter Future Strategy, I am looking forward to the exciting and challenging future ahead within Engineering & Major Projects, in which we will play a crucial role in the transition of society to a low-carbon future in Ireland and abroad.
