Irish water and wastewater infrastructure company Glanua has announced plans to create 250 new jobs over the next five years. The company, formerly known as BHSL, is currently recruiting to fill 100 open roles in its environmental and engineering departments.
Glanua aims to boost its workforce from 320 to over 500 employees by 2028. The new hires will primarily be engineers, project managers, and surveyors based out of the company's new headquarters in Loughrea, County Galway. Some positions will also support Glanua's operations in the UK.
The jobs announcement comes as Glanua rebrands and restructures, moving its head office from Limerick to Loughrea. The shift follows a period of rapid expansion for the firm. In 2022, Glanua saw total revenues of €97 million. For 2023, they expect revenues to leap to €150 million.
Glanua CEO Éamonn McCoy said the company's growth plan will enable them to take on more large-scale water infrastructure projects across Ireland and Britain. "We are delighted to be creating high-quality engineering and sustainability jobs, particularly in rural areas," McCoy stated.
With transformative investments planned for water and wastewater systems nationwide, Glanua's expansion comes at an opportune time. The company is poised to play a lead role improving and expanding Ireland's water infrastructure over the next decade. Their job creation will also provide a boost to the Midlands economy.
