Grow your career with us
ByrneLooby Early Careers Programme is focused on that transition from university / college life to what is expected in the workplace. The programme is delivered in partnership with Engineers Ireland and successful participants will receive CPD Certificate in Professional Engineering from Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin), which is worth 5 ECTS credits at Level 9 on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ).
To develop the range of competencies required at the start of your career, participants are exposed to a series of learning opportunities over the course of the programme ensuring learning is transferred to the workplace. The programme is supplemented with internal subject matter experts, to enhance the learning and understand the culture within ByrneLooby. It aims to provide a collaborative, open environment where you can have a voice.
Equipping you with essential management skills
The facilitators involved in the programme are drawn from both the ByrneLooby shared services team as well as expert trainers with a wealth of practical industry experience in the engineering field. This blend of experience with in-depth knowledge of subject-matter-experts underpins the learning ethos of the program in terms of depth of knowledge and breadth of experience aligning with our 70:20:10 framework.
Modules include managing your team, interview and hiring skills, team building and commercial awareness to name a few. Again, the programme is supplemented with sector presentations on lessons learnt during projects which participants on the programme will deliver. The manager programme is a great opportunity to meet colleagues from other offices, regions and countries and learn from them and continue to build networks.
Training delivered will allow our senior leaders to collaborate across the business and learn from each other, which is an integral part of the training as a global company and links to our 70:20:10 module around interactions with colleagues. In essence, our training aims to prepare our senior leaders with the tools to succeed.
Training modules include:
- Pitching Winning Business Solutions
- Strategic Planning & Thinking
- Employee Development
Always Collaborating | Always Learning | Always Developing
Senior Project Engineer
Undertaking the New Manager Programme gave me the opportunity to develop myself as I progress into a manager role within ByrneLooby. We have covered a wide range of topics ranging from managing your team to communication to team building, all of which have given me valuable skills for a manager role. Additionally, it has been great to meet other staff from across the wider ByrneLooby group!
“Since joining ByrneLooby, I have been afforded the opportunity to develop both professionally and technically, through study, CPD and project experience. Starting out as a graduate, I was provided with a senior member of staff, who acted as a mentor and helped me to grow into the position. That process has continued into my current role, where I am afforded time with directors and other senior members of staff to identify areas for personal and professional growth. A number of years ago, a structured goal planning process was implemented which formalised this process, and the benefits are clear in terms of my career path to date.”
“Byrnelooby has allowed me the opportunity to technically lead and manage projects with almost immediate effect on increasing my professional capacity. On reflection, it has enhanced my decision-making, developed further my problem-solving skills and encouraged me to think more critically over a broad range of topics. Although the learning curve has been steep, the lessons I have learned over the past year have been more valuable than I could ever have anticipated. If you are interested in progressing your career to the next level and taking on new challenges, I highly recommend joining ByrneLooby, a company who is interested in your personal and professional growth and encourages all aspects of development.”
IT Technical Lead
The ByrneLooby New Manager Program introduced an array of compelling and thought-provoking theories and methods at a point in my career that will help shape the years to come. Modules such as time and task management, finance, project management essentials, mentoring, and team-building has proven immediately beneficial in my day-to-day work and with my team. The program helped me understand shortcomings in my management style and provided constructive methods to alleviate them. The supplementary internal workshops provided by ByrneLooby staff helped focus some of the theoretical content on its application in ByrneLooby and resulted in what I thought was a fantastic program.
