We are the people behind Ireland’s national electricity grid.

Our focus is on safety, security and reliability. Our work environment is challenging, fast-moving, collaborative and team-orientated.

The world is ready for change. If you are too, join us.   We’re a client focused engineering business and an engineering background is key in this role. You’ll be an essential team member responsible for project management of large scale infrastructure projects on-time and within budget, respecting established governance and controls, facilitating the connection of new generation, demand and interconnection customers to the transmission system & facilitating the reinforcement of the existing transmission grid to ensure a secure, reliable, sustainable and economic power system into the future.  

You’ll also deliver on on-grid infrastructure projects, successfully working with stakeholders to meet customer needs in line with company requirements, provide client engineering technical assurance for all new connections and plant commissioned onto the transmission grid & programme manage all capital works – covering multi-year outage coordination, governance, regulatory and financial reporting, risk and quality assurance.
