Living in Kilkenny

A vibrant riverside town packed with amenities and close nature

Traditional ways of working only lead to burnout and poor wellbeing.  As designers of future-fit workplaces, the wellness of our people is critical to our organisation.

The Lawler Way is about allowing our people to have a meaningful working day, where innovation and collaboration lead the way, and where wellbeing takes centre stage.

I started my career with Lawler Group after Graduating from WIT with a Bachelor of Honors in sustainable energy engineering. I like the team environment and the constant learning involved throughout the graduate programme. Everyone is friendly and always willing to help which is great. I feel that I am valued as a member by others and I am grateful that my development is also valued by the organisation.  There has yet to be something that I dislike about working for this organisation.
