Independent energy provider Energia has revealed 100 positions to be added to its offices in Dublin and Cork in preparation for the company’s entry into the residential electricity and gas market early next year.
A part of major energy company Viridian Group, Energia Group has offices in Dublin, Galway, Cork, Belfast and Omagh. The new jobs in Dublin and Cork will be filled within the next 12 months, with 20 of these positions already recruited.
Roles available are in management, sales, marketing and the operational areas of the business as the company builds up its staff before it begins to compete for residential customers in 2014.
Energia provides power and gas to more than 65,000 business customers nationwide. To keep these customers happy, the firm has launched a residential affinity scheme whereby staff at these companies can register for the new residential services. Business customers will be contacted with the details of this scheme.
“Energia has consistently led the development of a competitive energy market, investing nationally in energy infrastructure and bringing our lower energy prices to Irish businesses,” said Gary Ryan, retail director. “Our current customers have been strong advocates of our business and we are delighted to provide them with this residential opportunity. We are very pleased to create these new jobs as we plan our further growth and development into the wider residential market.”
