www.esb.ie/em Dec 2010 / Jan 2011 ESB NETWORKS LTD 17 Completion of the FÁS Apprentice Initiative the team. I am very grateful to esB for giving me the opportunity to finish my apprenticeship, to work in a company which treats its staff so well, where morale is so good. I worked with a really decent bunch of lads who taught me a lot and I would love to stay on, but I know it’s not possible. I will always remember my time working in esB.” We also met Thomas carton from dunboyne who had previously spent six months trying to find work after completing his phase 6. Thomas completed 12 weeks on-the-job training in esB Networks, Finglas, under the guidance of construction supervisor Joe crowe. Thomas said he “was familiar with industrial wiring only, and this opportunity of working with construction gave me a great insight into the Networks operations setup. It was a great learning curve for me as it broadened my knowledge base to take with me into the job market.” esB Networks staff gained from working with these young apprentices who showed genuine appreciation for the opportunity afforded to them by esB Networks. Particular thanks to Maria dempsey, Portlaoise Networks Training centre, Apprentice Administration team who co-ordinated the induction and assignments for the FÁs apprentices. n (l-r): David Sandford, ESB Telecoms General Manager, Tom Bambury, Niamh Crawford of Silicon Republic, Michelle Montayne and David Walshe.

IN APrIl 2009, esB announced a series of initiatives to create and sustain jobs and training opportunities in the economy. Among these initiatives, esB committed to facilitate 400 redundant apprentices to gain their on-the-job work experience during 2009-10. The programme proved very successful for those apprentices who were made redundant and who were unable to source an employer to complete their apprenticeship. This initiative could not have happened without the leadership, support and mentoring of esB Network’s supervisors and Network Technicians. It has been a very positive learning experience for everyone involved, with esB staff reporting that they found it ‘refreshing and insightful to have the FÁs Apprentices working with us for the past two years’. during the final week of the initiative in october 2010, we met diarmaid hynes from Blanchardstown who has been with esB Networks, Finglas, under the guidance of construction supervisor shane Fox for both his Phase 5 (six months) and Phase 7 (three months). diarmaid had previously worked with a company specialising in industrial and domestic installations, which unfortunately went out of business, leaving him with no job to return to after completing his Phase four in college. diarmaid had been unemployed for 4 months when he received a letter from FÁs inviting him to indicate if he was interested in the FÁs/esB initiative. diarmaid said “I loved working in esB Networks, I was immediately made to feel welcome and part of Changing times The West’s wide awake and kicking!
