Irish-owned telecom company Entegro to host countrywide recruiting roadshow

Entegro, based in Kilkenny, is conducting its “biggest recruitment drive to date” in late October.

Entegro is currently working on infrastructure projects with National Broadband Ireland, Virgin Media Ireland, SIRO, Cityfibre, as well as Fibrus, Lumen, Ciena, Voneus, Jurassic Fibre, and E-Net.

To support these projects, the company is looking to expand its workforce. Its fixed network services contracts total more than €1 billion.

“We’re looking for enthusiastic candidates who want to join a dynamic industry, develop new skills and play their part in building digital networks for future generations,” said CEO Jim Doyle.

Entegro will be recruiting personnel with all levels of experience, including field technicians, as well as those with fibre splicing, testing and civil experience for roles that will be located at the company’s Baldonnell base in Dublin.

Not all of the roles will be in Dublin, however. Other positions involve work from Entegro’s Kilkenny headquarters. Jobs that can be done from either Kilkenny or Dublin include fibre design engineers and GIS personnel. Doyle said there are also “attractive, hybrid, field-based roles to fill”.

Entegro has a certified training centre located in Kilkenny, as well as a graduate programme for design engineers and a GIS apprenticeship programme.

The week-long national recruitment drive will begin on Monday, October 24 at the Maldron Hotel in Portlaoise, before going on to other locations around the country.

On Tuesday 25 October, it will be in The Dolmen Hotel in Carlow, then Maynooth’s Glenroyal Hotel, followed by Glenview in Wicklow on 27 October. It will finish up at the Maldron in Newlands Cross on Friday, 28 October.

The Entegro crew has already grown in recent years. It stated in 2020 that it will hire 50 people to assist in its work on the National Broadband Plan. It created 50 staff at its Kilkenny facility in 2019 to support its worldwide expansion plans.
