Eir Announces 50 New Apprenticeship Roles

Broadband provider eir has announced details of 50 new apprenticeship roles in the second years of its recruitment programme.

The programme is open to candidates who have passed their Leaving Certificate and who would enjoy the challenge of working for a market leading Irish company on the rollout of a high speed national fibre network. Selected candidates will start work from July and the training programme will run for two years.

Speaking at the recruitment launch at the Agri Careers Fair at the RDS, Orla Coughlan, Chief Human Resources Officer eir, said: "Our recruitment call is a further signal of our sustained commitment to investing in our future, ensuring our people can deliver the high speed broadband and highest level of service to our customers.

"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."

The structured two-year programme will provide on-the-job learning, one-to-one coaching and formal classroom training. Successful applicants will also receive a Level 6 FETAC Telecommunications Access Networks Technology Major Award.
