Hear from our recent graduates

"While I had some prior experience and relevant education, I was new to the renewable energy sector when I joined Wind Energy Ireland. As part of the graduate programme, I received tremendous training and development opportunities which has quickly brought me up to speed on the renewable energy policy landscape in Ireland. At an early stage in my career, it has been a fantastic experience working alongside senior managers from wide variety of companies helping to solve some of the biggest challenges facing the energy transition – and I can happily say I have recently been promoted to a permanent Policy Analyst working on both European and domestic grid and markets policy."
