Farewell & Thanks
Carmel Hosey is retiring / Patricia Nolan
After 44 years of dedicated, professional and loyal service to ESB Carmel Hosey is retiring on the 30th October 2020.
In July 1976 and at a very young age Carmel commenced her career with ESB in Ferbane Generating Station for a brief sojourn before transferring to Rhode Station where she worked in several administration roles until 2003 when the station closed. Carmel’s affinity with numbers called her to the Payroll Unit in Tullamore, but there was an even greater demand for her people skills and she was appointed as an EAP Officer to support the employees involved in the closure of the Midlands Stations. From 2008 when Carmel took up a new challenge in Recruitment & Staff Development, she juggled several projects at once including transitioning of contracts work. She excelled herself so well in one project, the very important Pre-Retirement Programme that she was appointed Programme Lead for that programme. Here Carmel became a vital part of the programme which she ran like a ‘well-oiled machine’ and put hundreds of people through this programme over the last number of years until lockdown in March 2020. Carmel will now have the opportunity to benefit from all the advice gained during these Pre-Retirement Programmes.
Carmel is a committed, kind, helpful, hardworking individual who takes great pride in her work and has been a great friend, guide colleague and mentor, particularly for new team members. She will go above and beyond the call of duty to help and support people in any way that she can to get the job done, and there’s never a fuss. In her own words she ‘loved helping staff’. She will be greatly missed by all who worked with her over the last 44 years.
Due to current Covid 19 restrictions we can’t celebrate with Carmel in person, however we will ‘live to fight another day’ and have a celebration of Carmel’s career and retirement post Covid restrictions.
I want to sincerely thank Carmel for her 44 years of service and on behalf of all Carmel’s friends and colleagues to wish Carmel a long, happy and healthy retirement as she moves to this exciting new chapter in her life to spend more time with her family and friends and continue with her wide range of outside interests.
