Online applications have opened today for the second year of eir’s apprentice recruitment programme. The programme offers candidates who have passed their Leaving Certificate the opportunity to train and work in a dynamic and fast-paced environment.

The programme offers a variety of training, from on-the-job to one-to-one coaching, with successful applicants receiving a Level 6 FETAC Telecommunications Access Networks Technology Major Award.

Speaking at the Agri Careers Fair in Dublin’s RDS, eir’s Chief Human Resources Officer Orla Coughlan shared her thoughts on the benefits of the programme:

“The apprentice roles provide a really exciting opportunity to work in a dynamic fast paced environment on a critical infrastructure programme. The jobs will be bases across Ireland and we have been very clear to date on our determination to support rural employment by hiring people from their local communities. Successful applicants will be trained and taught a range of skills to help build and maintain our fibre network throughout the country.”

eir look forward to both continuing and expanding the programme in future years. To apply for the apprentice programme, or for further information, visit eir’s website. Applications open today, March 3rd 2016, and will close on March 31st 2016.
