With Safety in Design uppermost in your mind, you will be designing cost-effective substation and protection and control solutions which meet the requirements of the network owner's customer(s) and which are compliant with exacting technical demands required to protect the integrity of the networks of which they will form a part. Involvement in the design generator connections and of private distribution networks is also likely.

You will contribute to a wide range of projects, of both AIS and GIS design, including new build, extensions, asset replacement and network reconfigurations. Teamwork and communication will be of key importance as you will be working closely with other members of the design team (Plant / Substation layout, Ohl, Cables, Civil etc) to deliver holistic, integrated designs which can be constructed and commissioned within very tight timescales. Your ability to bring best-practice and innovation to the design process will also be highly valued.


The preferred location is Ireland
