Why Join Us


We’re immensely proud of our 350 year history. We’re even more excited about our future.

Saint-Gobain is one of the Top 100 Global Innovators and we’re using this capability and experience to enhance daily lives. Joining us means not only embarking on a career without boundaries but also helping to improve the spaces in which we all live, work, learn and play. Saint Gobain Ireland is awarded Top Employer accreditation year on year since 2016. 

Here’s just some of what you can expect.


Our vision is to be the reference for sustainable habitat. All 190,000 Saint-Gobain employees are helping us to enhance daily lives by making buildings more comfortable, efficient and healthy.


Not many businesses make it to their 350th birthday. We’ve been innovating for so long because of our strong set of values and principles which are shared by our people and guide everything we do.


As one of the world's top 100 innovators, we spend €400m a year on R&D globally, tackling some of the biggest challenges of our time. One in five of our products did not exist 5 years ago.


Teamwork is a core value for Saint-Gobain and we expect our people to collaborate with their colleagues. We believe that working across functional boundaries as well as with our business partners and communities drives innovation and a richer working experience for our people.


We value the uniqueness and contribution of all employees and provide opportunities to work with colleagues from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds in an environment where your ideas and opinions are valued and listened to and you can make a difference


We believe in putting our people in control of their development. We’re committed to internal promotion as a first choice and the size and breadth of opportunity afforded by an international Group means that you could work for a number of businesses or follow different career paths with Saint-Gobain.  


We are committed to being active and valued members of our local communities and have a long tradition of supporting local projects and charities. We recognise and encourage involvement from our people and the opportunity this can also provide for personal and professional development.


At Saint-Gobain we offer competitive rewards and benefits that not only reward your contribution but also recognise and celebrate your achievement.
