For the 6th year in a row, we're thrilled to be named as one of the Best Large Workplaces in Ireland. This year Cpl was placed 13th, our best rating yet, and as one of the Best Workplaces for Women.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CPL Resources.


    There were at least 4 interview rounds, all well-organised and efficient. You meet both HR and the department managers to be evaluated. They are tough and demanding during the process to make sure you can handle the pressure & responsibilities. HR try to find a role that would fit your personality
