    Former Employee - Interim Group Financial Controller in Newbridge, Kildare

    I worked at Bord na Móna full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The group is always evolving with some businesses growing and others contracting which is challenging and very rewarding at the same time. Plenty of opportunities for those interested in the energy, renewables and waste management business segments. There is a significant emphasis and investment in new business opportunities which is also exciting. For those interested in financial support services there is a high class financial shared services centre that utilises market leading technologies such as Oracle eBS , Oracle BI and Oracle EPM as well as robotics (RPA). This provides plenty of opportunities to gain valuable experience.

    Cons

    Culture has suffered in some areas with the transformation from traditional businesses to new strategy for the future.
