Veolia to create 60 new jobs to boost Ireland’s circular economyBlathnaid O’Deaon April 28, 2022 at 15:14 Silicon RepublicSilicon Republic


French environmental services company Veolia plans to create 60 new jobs in Ireland. The company already has a team of nearly 700 employees across the island of Ireland.

The roles will be based in the company’s offices in Dublin, Cork, Kilkenny and Belfast. There will also be several site-based roles in the Republic of Ireland.

Veolia employs around 179,000 people worldwide. It provides tools and resources for water, waste and energy management, helping to protect available resources. The company’s clients in Ireland range from large global businesses to domestic businesses across the life science, IT, healthcare and food and beverage sectors.

Some of the types of jobs on offer include electrical, mechanical and process engineers, as well as technicians and waste management professionals, who will work either directly with customers or at Veolia’s hazardous waste facility in Fermoy, Co Cork.

Technicians will be in charge of keeping specialist plant and equipment fully operational along the entire manufacturing chain.

Veolia operates the energy infrastructure at Dublin’s Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and it is helping it to cut its carbon footprint.

Donna Marie Masterson, head of HR at Veolia Ireland said the company had seen “a major shift” in its clients’ mindsets “as they look to reduce their carbon footprint and improve their environmental performance.”

She added that this shift in thinking was timely given Ireland’s push to reduce emissions by 51pc.

“As we move towards a more circular economy, we’re looking for new recruits from entry level, including apprentices and graduates, to senior level interested in working at the forefront of innovative environmental solutions for businesses and industry.”

Minister for Business, Employment and Retail, Damien English TD, welcomed the jobs news adding that the roles would “help ensure Ireland has a greater pool of talent available to push towards a more circular economy.”

In 2016, Veolia announced it was recruiting 300 people in Ireland as it made moves to expand its presence here.

More information on the current roles available can be found on Veolia’s website.
