Opportunities for Students

Whether you’re an undergraduate seeking an internship or a student looking for an apprenticeship, we’re always looking for new talented employees. We offer the opportunity to do work with impact, build relationships with colleagues across the organisation and enjoy almost unlimited career growth.

Johnson Controls is a great place to start a career. We offer opportunities in fields such as engineering, research & development, marketing and human resources.

This is your opportunity to apply your classroom training to real-world projects. The work you do here will help you to build new skills and make your mark. Wherever you join us, you’ll be working on projects with clearly defined goals. All of these roles are paid, but how long they last will vary from location to location. The programme is 6 months long in Ireland, running from March through to September, and 12 months long in the UK, beginning in July.

From the start, you’ll be assigned a buddy and mentor. They’ll make sure you feel at home and will support your development. We’ll also help you to develop skills through on-the job training, technical training and career coaching. Meanwhile our performance management process will see you getting structured reviews on your progress and results.

We have internship opportunities in:

  • Engineering
  • Research & Development
  • Human Resources

An apprenticeship with us will see you building new skills while applying your knowledge to real-world projects. There will be plenty of opportunities to explore your potential and you’ll enjoy full support from your line manager and a mentor. We are offering a full-time permanent Advanced Level 3 Apprenticeship Programme for talented people. This is a genuine alternative to university for people who have a passion for engineering and who want to launch their career. The apprenticeship will combine on-the-job work experience, with time at college to achieve a BTEC Diploma in either Electrical or Mechanical Engineering, along with a learning framework.

We have two types of apprenticeships available:

Apprentice Electrical or Mechanical Installation Engineer

This apprenticeship will provide a foundation from which to progress on several career paths as either an Electrical or Mechanical Installation & Service Engineer. During this apprenticeship you will learn electrical engineering or mechanical engineering skills suitable for installing, maintaining and repairing state of the art fire and security, prevention and suppression systems.


Apprentice Mechanical or Electrical Design Engineer

This apprenticeship is a highly skilled technical role that requires you to produce designs for a wide range of installations to customer specification both commercial/industrial and residential. Mechanical & Electrical Design Engineers need to be very safety conscious and have good IT, mathematics and communication skills. During the apprenticeship you will learn to produce drawings and designs using Computer Aided Design (CAD), AutoCAD and additional design & prototyping software programs.


These engineering apprenticeships are very exciting, challenging and rewarding roles that will provide a starting point for a lifelong career within a highly innovative and technical business environment.
