The CRU launches recruitment drive to support delivery of broadened Climate Action objectives

The CRU has today commenced a significant new recruitment campaign for additional resources to enable a step-change in the pace of policy decision-making and delivery of actions and statutory duties supporting Ireland’s ambitions for renewable energy deployment.

Applications are now being invited for multiple management and graduate posts with further competitions to be advertised in Autumn 2022.

The CRU is leading significant programmes of work in the areas of Security of Energy Supply, the Climate Action Plan 2021 and the Clean Energy Package. Posts are to be filled in new areas of work that require a broad range of expertise including the development of regulatory frameworks for offshore wind; hydrogen; district heating; and, critically, engaging active customers and communities in energy markets.

Aoife MacEvilly, CRU Chairperson, said “The CRU plays a leading role in protecting and empowering consumers, as well as accelerating the deployment of renewable and low carbon solutions for Ireland to deliver on our climate targets. Joining the CRU at this time represents an exciting and challenging opportunity to make a difference and be at the forefront of policy development and delivery.”

“The 73 new posts will enable the CRU to take on significant new functions and accelerate existing programmes of work to deliver on Ireland’s policy goals and the transition of Ireland to a net-zero carbon economy.”

The CRU is seeking applications from qualified/experienced candidates in economics, engineering, environmental and general sciences, legal, public policy and other relevant fields to join new and existing teams.
