Careers in Bord Gáis Energy

Who we are

We're Bord Gáis Energy, we’ve been in operation since 1976 and today provide gas, electricity and home care services to over 730,000 residential and business customers throughout the country.

As an energy services and supply company we’re committed to satisfying the changing needs of our customers and helping them transition to a lower carbon future.

Our main locations in Ireland are in Dublin and Cork but you’re probably more familiar with our sponsorship programmes and boiler service engineers who are out and about visiting homes, businesses and communities. You’ll know them from their helpful approach, their uniforms and their photo identification cards.

In July 2014 we became part of the global Centrica plc Group. Centrica is active in the energy chain − from sourcing energy to saving it − and this helps us operate more efficiently. You can find out more about our parent company Centrica.
