The demand of engineering services is increasing in the field of international energy sectors. Because of this growing demand, ESB international is now planning to recruit 80 new and fresh engineering and technical professionals over the next 5 years.
The engineering consultancy of ESB is now expanding its business development team worldwide. They recently opened a new office in Turkey. As the potentiality in market is growing, the company is intending to open a number of other offices in key markets during this year.
Ollie Brogan, managing director of ESB international, said that “there is a massive investment in energy infrastructure across our key markets and recently, we have secured new contracts in Turkey, Middle East and South Africa. We are on the track to double turnover from our international operations over the next 5 years and therefore, we will need skilled people from all of the main engineering disciplines to support that growth.”
Minister for Communication, Energy and Natural Resources Pat Rabbitte TD has said that “the new 80 positions were high quality, export-oriented jobs that will showcase the best of Irish engineering expertise in over 20 key international markets.”
In addition, Chief executive of ESB Pat O’Doherty said, we are not only showcasing Irish engineering talent through our international consulting business, but we are also drawing on international best practices to improve our domestic expertise and developing critical support which will support the future growth and development of Ireland.
The company was established about 40 years and has yet completed projects in 115 countries. The company currently employs 800 people. ESB international is targeting experienced energy sector consultants and engineers at Career Zoo.
