PR Intern

We are gathering applications for the position of PR Intern here at Cullen Communications, one of Ireland’s leading independent agencies.

Our aim is to provide an Internship that educates, rewards and ultimately benefits both parties, helping us to manage workflow during projects or busy periods and helping you to gain practical experience as you build your career in PR.

This will be a paid position. We are looking for talented people to make a contribution, and for that we will pay the going rate. The Internship will be for an initial contract length of 3 or 6 months, depending on what suits both parties.

We cannot guarantee that there will be a full-time role for you at the end of your Internship. However, if you make the right impression we can guarantee that you will be foremost in our thoughts when the right full-time vacancy arises.

We work from 9am to 5.30pm. We’re based on Clyde Road in Ballsbridge, right near the US Embassy. We like strolling in Herbert Park, which is right outside the agency. We have many strong opinions on TV series and sport. We are people people.

The purpose of our Internship is to give you a clear idea of what it’s like to work in a busy PR agency. Get ready to roll up your sleeves!

You will be supporting our PR client team, which works on a range of client accounts across a variety of sectors: automotive, sport, travel, tourism and others. All of our clients have year-long PR agendas and you will have the opportunity to work on various communications projects and initiatives.

What you work on will depend on what you’re good at, what you’re interested in – and what we need to get done. As a general idea, some of the work you might be doing includes:

  • Drafting/proofing press releases and other written content
  • Brainstorming creative ideas for projects or campaigns
  • Helping out with social media content or management
  • Assisting at client or media events, e.g. product launches or promotions
  • Making coffee for everyone (kidding! we are a democratic coffee-making agency)

The reality is that you’re likely to find yourself doing a bit of everything, at least initially. Our Client Executives and Client Managers will be on hand, not only to brief you on what work needs to be done but to give you advice and pointers along the way. We’re here to help you learn the ropes.

Our Culture

 

We are a small agency with a large personality.

From our forensic dissections of the latest blockbuster TV series (ALL of them) to swapping precious nuggets of celebrity gossip, the buzz of conversation is a constant backdrop as we go about our work. If you love to chat, you’ll fit in nicely here.

Our office is nestled halfway along leafy Clyde Road, right in the middle of the bustling triangle of Ballsbridge, Donnybrook and Upper Baggot Street with, oh only about a million cafés, restaurants and pubs to choose from.

Transport-wise, we are a 10 minute walk from Lansdowne Road DART station. Buses are also plentiful, the Luas is close by and there’s loads of bike-parking space here too. We spend a fair bit of time thinking and strolling in our ‘back yard’ (Herbert Park) where the coffee in Lolly & Cook’s helps to get the morning started.

All in all, this is a great place to work. Friendly people, a beautiful part of town and some cool projects to get stuck into – you’d love it here!
