Hanley Energy, a global innovator in critical power and energy management solutions, has an established team of world-class engineers shared between European headquarters in Ireland – in Co Meath – and North America.

Hanley Energy’s core capabilities cover the design, build, and commission of turnkey mission-critical solutions – delivering secure reliable power from the grid all the way to the industrial manufacturing equipment or Hyperscale Data Centre IT rack. 

Hanley Energy’s apprenticeship training programme is key to their business as they view all of their apprentices as possible future engineers, even leaders who can be identified and developed through training with Hanley Energy.

Electrical apprenticeships

From a total of five apprentices in 2017 to a current total of 37, Hanley Energy is extremely proud of its apprentice training programme.

Career development, experience and travel is prioritised within the Irish-owned business, with a number of apprentices who have qualified as electricians, since progressed into roles within Hanley Energy’s Commissioning and UPS teams. Two such individuals now work for Hanley Energy in the USA and Australia as key members of the team – the possibilities are endless.

Oliver Cooney completed his apprenticeship at Hanley Energy and is now senior controls site technician in its Australian division. “The apprenticeship was hands on, I was given responsibility and got great experience with the electrical equipment that we built and installed. In my current role I install, commission and service our equipment for our clients in Asia and Australia and grow our reliability and service over this side of the world.”

Apprentices spend four years working on Hanley Energy products which are bespoke to the company and nurture and grow their skills with leading Hanley Energy mentors.

Apprenticeship in industrial electrical engineering

Hanley Energy is also a registered employer of the Apprenticeship in Industrial Electrical Engineering programme, leading to the award of a Level 7 Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng).

The electrical apprenticeship is the only field that offers this opportunity to advance in studies. This degree is specifically designed as a progression programme for qualified electricians who wish to upskill and to acquire advanced knowledge, competences and skills to move into engineering roles in the industry.

Join Hanley Energy’s apprentice training programme

Oliver Cooney offers his advice to those starting an apprenticeship: “Just go for it, put the effort and respect in and you will get the respect and gratitude back from your boss or college lecturer. You need to be dedicated from the start and in no time you will be fully qualified in your field of work.”
