Today, we operate one of the most progressive electricity systems in the world, with activities spanning electricity generation, transmission, distribution and supply in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Great Britain, and an international energy consulting business.
With 8,000 employees and revenue of over €5bn per annum, we invested €1bn in infrastructure last year, contributed over €2bn to the economies we operate in and distributed over €2m across a range of community initiatives. This requires us to bring the best of our capabilities together to deliver innovative and value-driven solutions that enable our customers to live low-carbon lives. ESB strives to foster an effective and inclusive culture where people engage, challenge and feel connected to our purpose, colleagues, customers and community.
Technology plays a leading role in enabling and delivering ESB’s transition to a digital, low carbon utility, and it’s our people who ensure we succeed. With almost 800 people working across our IT Delivery and CIO functions, together we design, build and support a broad range of technologies and services to deliver on our mission to bring sustainable and competitive energy solutions to all customers. We achieve this by harnessing all our resources, investing in our people and working collaboratively together.
To further enhance our capabilities across a number of areas including Data & Analytics, Digital Delivery, Digital Development, Cybersecurity, Project Management and more, we are looking for talented professionals to start their journey with us to lead the transition to reliable, affordable low-carbon energy – a brighter future for the benefit of all.
