Internship

Ireland

Our summer internship schemes are for a period of two to six months, during which, you will have the opportunity to work within our Energy Sector – Power Transmission and distribution division where you’ll have the chance to work on large scale projects alongside our teams.

You’ll be working with graduates, experienced professionals, and other students so an internship with us is the perfect opportunity to learn from a variety of people while understanding our values and culture. It’s also a great chance to get involved with real projects while gaining relevant experience.

Our electrical engineers work in world class teams to design and deliver sustainable solutions. Our work spans a variety of sectors including Energy, Aviation, Buildings, Ports, Rail & Metros, and water. In our Energy Sector we undertake projects in power transmission and distribution, energy systems, hydropower, renewable energy, thermal generation, nuclear services, and oil & gas.

This particular role will be within our power transmission and distribution team.

As the digital revolution is applied to the provision of essential services, electrical engineering will play a central role in creating smart infrastructure, helping to deliver better and quicker performance.

We do not have a formal structure for our internships so you can really make the role your own. The more you get involved and the more questions you ask, the more you will gain from your experience with us.
