Irish PR Jobs

From time to time I come across job postings in the PR Industry in Ireland. Although I will be posting them here, in the vast majority of cases I will know nothing else about the position other than what you see. Similarly, just because I post them does not mean I am affiliated or approve of them. I am merely helping to spread the word about job vacancies and hoping more people gain employment.

I won’t be recommending/advertising unpaid or JobBridge Internships as I have pretty strong personal feelings on this whole area. The first blog post I ever wrote was on this topic back in July, 2010.

Most jobs are hyperlink-ed in the Job Description. There will be typos as I don’t proof the descriptions.

Make sure to check the PRII website also as it is regularly updated with a range of PR Jobs: http://www.prii.ie/show_jobs.aspx
