TLI Group to create 90 jobs after opening new engineering center in Kerry

TLI Group has opened a dedicated engineering office in Tralee to meet the growing demand in the renewable energy sector.

TLI Group expects to create 90 new jobs this year as it expands to meet the needs of customers such as ESB Networks, Siro, National Broadband Ireland and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.

The utility infrastructure construction and consultancy business has bases in Ireland and the UK, employing over 850 people in total.

Jobs currently available at the company include electricians, project engineers, graduate engineers, electrical design engineers, civil and structural design engineers, and GIS analysts. Positions are advertised in locations across Ireland and Northern Ireland.

TLI Group offices are in Kerry, Ireland and Hampshire, UK. It recently opened a new office in Tralee, Co Kerry, dedicated to its engineering team.

This hub was opened in response to demand for the company’s services within the renewable energy industry. Its team of engineers provides specialist design and engineering consultancy services to the renewable energy industry in the form of high voltage grid connections and substation designs.

The company employs engineers in a variety of disciplines, including electrical, civil, structural and mechanical engineers, GIS specialists and technicians.

John Tuite, managing director of TLI Group, said the company’s continued growth was due to the work of its existing team.

“The team has worked tirelessly to deliver vital services and infrastructure on behalf of the customers and communities we serve and has adapted brilliantly to overcome the challenges presented by the pandemic,” he said, adding that the group’s future prospects would be “excellent”.

Kerry TD Brendan Griffin, who opened the new office in Tralee, said it was “hugely exciting” to watch the business grow and develop.

TLI Group is a sub-contractor to Siro, the joint venture of Vodafone and ESB, and helped deliver the fiber network to the Siro building throughout Ireland.
