Communications and Public Relations Manager (Ireland) – Google

As a member of the Global Communications & Public Affairs team, you will work cross-functionally to help communicate with journalists and other thought leaders; devise specific communications materials and campaigns based on understanding of journalists’ interests; engage in face-to-face meetings with commentators and other opinion formers; develop print and web-based material supporting these campaigns; and counter misinformation that might interfere with our business and ability to serve our users. We’re looking for great communicators who can understand complex issues and explain them in person and also via well written, simple blog posts, FAQs, video scripts and more.

As a Communications Manager, using your PR background you have the ability to communicate about Google, and an interest in the media landscape. In this role, you’ll be working in a fast-paced environment and have the organizational skills to manage numerous projects at once – from preparing presentations and written materials that communicate key messages, to cultivating relationships with media outlets and coordinating with colleagues across the globe.

We are looking for quick-witted, entrepreneurial and intellectually curious people to join the team. To succeed here, you’ll need to be able to combine creativity with the organizational skills to manage numerous different projects to tight deadlines simultaneously, as well as enjoy pitching to all kinds of journalists, bloggers and commentators (we find it hard too!), or producing internal communications and events for our employees. Things happen quickly at Google and to get stuff done here you need to be an enthusiastic team player – a self-starter who can work cross-functionally and isn’t frightened to take risks or try out new ways of doing things.

Responsibilities

  • Manage Google’s day-to-day relationship with the media in Ireland.
  • Support the team in the execution of Google’s strategic external communications plan.
  • Work with the EMEA Communications and Public Affairs team to create and implement imaginative B2C-focused PR campaigns to launch and promote Google products.
