I’m in my second rotation of the IT Graduate Development Programme. ESB have over 600 people working in the ITS department operating over 450 applications. My first rotation was on the Business Intelligence Team and my second rotation is in Continuous Improvement Team where I am applying Lean Six Sigma to internal processes.
I love the work – its challenging and rewarding. But for me it’s the people that make it worthwhile. As a graduate you might be new to the workplace and this can be daunting. ESB staff are very welcoming and encourage you to get involved in everything, whether its lunch and learns to find out about what other teams are working on, or going on social outings.
During my time on the Graduate Development Programme I have got involved in The ESB Power Challenge and Time to Read Scheme as well as social events such as the incoming Graduate BBQ and Christmas Party. I have also availed of the Bike to Work scheme and joined the GAA club.
