The internship with Bus Éireann was a worthwhile experience where I was learning new skills and was trusted to work independently and on my own initiative on the varied tasks assigned. Throughout the internship felt I was supported in my work from all departments encountered.
I would definitely recommend this internship especially if you have an interest in sustainability, the environment and energy management.

If you have a genuine interest in being a Heavy Vehicle Mechanic, you won’t go wrong at Bus Éireann. High quality training, encouragement to look at things differently and adapt processes to keep moving forward; a modern growing fleet to work on in a changing industry with HGVs evolving to hybrid, electric and hydrogen technology.
There is always something new and interesting to be involved in. Don't be afraid to give it a go, and never be afraid to ask a question, there are no stupid questions. Asking someone that knows more than us is how we all learned. Bus Éireann ticked all the boxes for me, a high reputation for maintenance quality and an impressive fleet from different manufacturers to learn about. I was promoted to the positon of AVL Fleet Service Support Technician in 2018 which has helped me learn much more about the operating side of the Company. Bus Éireann has looked after me very well in my 12 years so far and I'm sure will continue to do so for years to come.

I always had an interest in motors growing up, anything to do with engines. I completed a Fetac Level 5 Motor Vehicle Technician Course in TUD and knew this was something I wanted to pursue further. As a mature student, I was sceptical but all my colleagues have been more than helpful and have welcomed me with open arms.
It is a fun and enjoyable place to work as every day is different with new tasks and challenges. I can’t wait to see what my journey has in store. I would highly recommend anyone starting their journey into mechanics to start with Bus Éireann, not just for the many benefits on offer but for the opportunity to achieve your maximum potential!
