Adam joined our team in 2008 as an Apprentice Electrician. On completion of his apprenticeship in 2013, Adam left to spend a few years travelling. When he returned to Ireland in 2016, he rejoined Jones Engineering. Adam has recently gained a Higher Certificate in Electrical Services Engineering from Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) and is due to start the B.Eng. Tech Electrical Services Engineering course this year in DIT Kevin Street on a part-time basis.
“When I returned home from travelling, Jones Engineering was top of my list for job applications. Throughout my employment, I have always felt welcome and included. Jones Engineering encouraged me to return to college part-time and complete a degree course in Electrical Services Engineering. The support I have received in my career progression is unwavering. I spent 5 years learning my trade with great support from the company and my colleagues. As part of the team I have worked on a variety of projects including pharmaceutical, commercial, medical and industrial. I look forward to my future with Jones Engineering.”
