Robert O'Toole

"The ESB internship was a really beneficial experience for me. I was exposed to a variety of projects both in the office and on-site and I was given responsibilities similar to a graduate engineer. The internship was great preparation for the start of my engineering career."

Tara Ní Reachtagáin

"I learned about substation design, power plants and overhead power lines, working with some very welcoming and knowledgeable engineers. I am now working in a new role in ESB Networks as a Change Lead on ESB's Smart Metering Project. I am fortunate to have had such great opportunities and I am very proud to work for ESB."

Yomade Agbolade

“It has been a fantastic experience to work at ESB. I have been given genuine responsibility in diverse roles, and great exposure to different areas of the organisation.  The atmosphere amongst the interns is brilliant and I have made some great friends.” 

Cian Spollen

 "The quality of learning ESB provides through its internship vastly aids students in the completion of their degrees as they return to their studies with increased industry know-how. I proceeded to write my Master’s thesis for ESB, designing a first-principles model capable of calculating the heat transfer pathways and ultimately temperatures throughout one of the generators in the ESB fleet."
