A major national recruitment roadshow’s been launched by Entegro.
The Kilkenny-headquartered global telecommunication services company is running it from the 24th to the 28th of October at various venues, including at the Woodford Dolmen Hotel in Carlow.
It’s part of its latest expansion drive to meet the growing demand for its fixed network services contracts worth over €1 billion with top-tier clients in Ireland, the UK, and the US.
Anita Walsh is Head of Human Resources and has told KCLR News there’s a high number of positions to be filled; “In line with our continued growth that we’ve seen over the last number of years we’re continually becoming involved in more new projects with our clients so at the moment we’re looking to hire between 50 and 70 people adding on to the people that we’ve employed over the last number of years”.
She adds “Those 50 to 70 people that we’re looking to hire we would love to be taking from the Carlow Kilkenny area, I would encourage everybody to come along and chat to us on the day, there’ll be hiring managers there on the day so it’ll be like a walk-in interview process, you can make an appointment in advance if you want as well through an online booking system, it would be brilliant to fill at least 70 to 80% of those roles around that region”.
Biggest recruitment drive
Entegro CEO Jim Doyle says “This is our biggest recruitment drive to date. 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.,”
“We’re recruiting personnel with all levels of experience that are willing to join and develop their careers, including Field Technicians at all levels; those with Fibre Splicing and with Testing experience and Civils experience for roles that will be based from our Baldonnell base in Dublin.”
“We’ve immediate starts available in either Dublin or Kilkenny for Fibre Design Engineers as well as GIS personnel. Some roles are Dublin-based, others involve work from our headquarters in Kilkenny. We also have attractive, hybrid, field-based roles to fill,” he concluded.

Entegro is currently working on life-changing infrastructure projects with National Broadband Ireland, Virgin Media IE, SIRO and Cityfibre as well as Fibrus, Lumen, Ciena, Voneus, Jurassic Fibre and E-Net, all of which aim to improve connectivity and bridge the digital divide between people, homes and businesses in both rural and urban settings all over the world.

The Entegro team has grown significantly in recent months and continues to advance within the fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) market, having evolved its fixed-line capability through the emphasis placed on innovation and internal tool development. Its top-tier clients in Ireland, the UK and the US continually rely on and place trust in the company’s expertise and resources to deliver success through quality solutions. The group of highly-skilled employees within the organisation can call on their collective expertise for engineering success and delivering Network Ingenuity for both clients and company alike, Fintan Shortall, COO, said; “Through our Certified Training Centre located in Kilkenny, in conjunction with our in-house training and development initiatives, Entegro continues to attract talent.
