Various Positions – Edelman Ireland

We’ve got great clients, huge brands, a brilliant international network, innovative tools and lots of awards.

We come from different backgrounds and have different perspectives which allows us to be better collectively than we are individually. Over the years we’ve grown and evolved with the world around us.

While the discipline or channel might change, we’re still all about telling stories that people care about. We believe the answers start with posing the right questions so if you’re driven by questions like “Why not?”, “So what?” or “What next?” then you’re our type of person and we’d love you to drop us a line.

Account/Project Manager

As a manager you own your own projects. You make everything happen, from getting under the skin of what a client really needs to deliver the final job in all its glory.

To do this, you’ll co-ordinate the whole team. You’ll keep creatives, strategists, planners, producers and influencers all pointed in the right direction. You’ll make sure everyone stays as enthusiastic about doing fantastic work as you are.

On a practical level, our managers are really well connected. They always know the newest illustrator, the absolute best photographer and the venue that no one’s even talking about, yet.

It’s as exciting as it sounds, if it sounds like you then let’s talk.

Account Executive

Account executives get things done. Projects simply don’t happen without your energy and enthusiasm. Every day you’re at the forefront of delivering brilliant client work, and we all know how great that feels. So, you do a lot – but you also get a lot.

At Edelman, you get to work on brands that are recognised worldwide and you have the freedom to shape the work we do.

Are you someone who always gets involved rather than simply standing at the sidelines? Do you make your voice heard clearly and confidently? Do you put a new slant on things?

If you do, you could be the Account Executive we’re looking for. Let’s find out.

Content Creator

Brilliant creators convert blank screens and pages into the content we all talk about the next morning and share everywhere from Twitter to Instagram to Whatsapp.

Do you have the imagination to see beyond raw facts and news? And do you love to craft insights into compelling, persuasive content? It doesn’t really matter which media is used; what matters is that these stories are told in a way that cannot be ignored.

Sound like you? Don’t tell us, show us.

Digital Strategist

Strategists see the big picture. You connect all the dots and reveal a clear path to solutions. You understand how people interact with the digital world – and this understanding means you know how to tell digital stories that resonate and persuade on a human level.

Do you think big? Then make a big move and get in touch.

 Junior Creative

Are you constantly creative and curious? Do you have proven motion graphic skills? Can you deliver eye-catching visual work? Edelman gives you the opportunity to do all this and more, so show us what you’re made of. 

Get in touch and wow us with your skills.

Junior Performance Marketer

Getting the right message to the right person is the most basic and important job we do. If you can zero in on the right people – then keep tweaking, polishing and adjusting messages so they stay relevant and effective, you are who we’re looking for.

If you’re excited about disrupting people endlessly scrolling through their news feed, then get in touch. Let’s stop people in their tracks.

If any of these roles are for you tell us why dublin@edelman.com.
