KIRBY Group Engineering has been a leader of industry in Ireland’s Mid West for decades. The company had a turnover of more than €400 million last year and employs over 1,300 people directly.

Operations Director Ruairi Ryan, who’s based at the company’s headquarters in Raheen Business Park, says the company continues to be focused on sustainable growth, with the right team members on board: “Kirby offers fantastic roles for electrical and mechanical engineers, project managers, tradespeople and more. The opportunities are growing all the time, thanks to continual investment in the technologies that add value to our offering and put us at the leading edge of our industry.

“I’ve worked all over Ireland and the UK during my 25 years with Kirby and I’m delighted my career has brought me back home now, because Limerick and the Mid West have more to offer than ever. Commuters travel shorter distances to work in less time, remote workers have great broadband services, we have first class educational institutions and the amenities for your downtime, like the new Limerick Greenway are great. I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone in engineering and construction, looking for the right mix of countryside and city living alongside a great career should come to Limerick and talk to us at Kirby”.
