Fire & Security Engineering Technician Apprenticeship

Join us on our Fire & Security Engineering Technician Apprenticeship to install and maintain our fire and security solutions across Ireland. Work with relevant standards to ensure that our products are installed accurately and continue functioning for years to come. This programme will arm you with all the skills and knowledge you need to progress into an Install or Service Engineer role, specialising in either Fire or Security Systems!

While on this apprenticeship, you will work towards a Level 6 (NFQ) Electronic Security Systems Craft Apprenticeship. We will release you from work for College placements as required by your apprenticeship programme. These are currently one block of 22 continuous weeks followed by two further blocks of 11 weeks at a SOLAS approved College. These sessions may be based away from home, which would include overnight stays. Where this is the case, you will be entitled to claim the relevant SOLAS allowances for approved accommodation.

What your day will look like...

As an apprentice in our Fire & Safety team, your main responsibility will be to install our products in customer buildings and upkeep them year-round. Representing Chubb as a business, you will need to present yourself in a clean, efficient manner to maintain our excellent reputation. We’re looking for people to specialise in Fire and others in Security, so the tasks you could be doing may vary however, here’s an example of what you could take on:

  • Complete installation and maintenance work when the need arises
  • Ensure all work follows the relevant environmental, health and safety standards
  • Interpret system specifications and drawings
  • Produce system documentation to confirm operational status and compliance with regulatory bodies

The type of person we’re looking for...

As you may be working with customers regularly, it’s important that their needs are at the forefront of your mind and everything you do, as well as being able to communicate efficiently. Candidates will need a Leaving Certificate with a minimum of Higher Level or Ordinary Level C3 (O5) in Maths, English and Science. You should be willing to learn new things continuously, have a positive mentality and good timekeeping skills. Other skills we’re keen to see in a candidate include:

  • Adaptability
  • Teamwork
  • Forward-thinking

Applicants must be over 18 years old to successfully apply to this role, as well as pass the Ishihara 24 Plate Colour Vision assessment. A full driving licence is also desirable as you may be required to travel regularly. We will cover the Student Fees for your college-based tuition to ensure you face no costs for building a successful career.

What you’ll get out of it...

From the very first day of joining us, you’ll be on a starting salary of €17,137. This will progress annually over the 4-year programme to a final year salary of €39,161. Each of our apprentices will get access to our rewards and benefits schemes, offering access to discount saving cards, cycle to work schemes and more. Apprentices can also enjoy more employee benefits, such as:

  • Generous holiday package
  • Generous pension scheme
