Designer Group are delighted to announce our intake of 12 new Irish apprentices who have joined us during October and November. 

All of the new apprentices completed their induction week in our Training Academy before they were assigned to site.

During their induction to Designer Group, apprentices were given the opportunity to meet with Site Managers, Project Managers, qualified electricians and plumbers for Q&A’s.

All 12 completed the relevant training courses and two lucky apprentices won their very own toolboxes.

Welcome to the Designer Group team, we wish you all success for the future!

As an organisation that values the potential apprentices can bring, we are committed to your growth as you begin your journey to becoming a qualified electrician or plumber. 

We welcome applicants who are dedicated, committed and strive to meet our standards in all aspects of their work.


My apprenticeship with Designer Group has opened doors and given me more experiences than I ever thought possible. Starting at an older age, I was unsure what to expect. But, after my first day I was delighted. You are given ample opportunities and training. I’m looking forward to what the future has in store.

Mark Fitzgerald, 4th year apprentice
