At ORS, we value transparency and believe growth stems from both professional and personal experiences. Our Graduate Programme fosters strengths and addresses fears, considering each graduate a pivotal member of the team. My ORS journey began as a civil engineering intern from University College Dublin. I quickly immersed in varied roles, eventually becoming the Managing Director in 2015. While ORS has transformed since my start in 2002, our core values remain. As a multidisciplinary firm recognised as a Best Place to Work, we are always on the lookout for great talent.

    ORS has a great work-play hybrid environment with numerous social events. From sports day to team lunches, there’s something for everyone, including smaller get-togethers like Buddy Up for Spring, coffee roulette or town halls. Everyone’s encouraged to get involved, making each event lively. ORS’s social committee does an amazing job of keeping everyone connected and engaged. Having these opportunities to build relationships and have fun is important, and I’m grateful to be a part of such a vibrant team.

    Initially, I was worried about adapting to a new company and building relationships while working from home. However, ORS exceeded my expectations with their onboarding process. They offered online and in-person options and provided a warm welcome from my new colleagues. ORS is an industry leader in remote work.

    At ORS, I’ve had great support for my professional development. As a graduate, I’ve learned a lot from the civil and structural team and attending regular lunchtime CPD talks. The diverse range of projects I’ve worked on has been a highlight. I’m constantly expanding my knowledge, whether acquiring new skills or applying theoretical concepts to real-life situations.
