Communications agency H+A Marketing+PR is to create six new social media jobs as part of a two-year €250,000 investment.
The company already employs 38 people at its Cork and Galway offices. The agency specialises in fully integrated communications and handles a broad mix of services including marketing, PR, advertising, media planning, graphic design, web and increasingly social media management on behalf of local, national and international clients.
Some of H+A Marketing+PR customers include Laya Healthcare, Unilever Food Solutions, Kraft Foods Ireland, Ford, Barry Group and 48 Mobile.
The new jobs in Cork will be created as part of the new social media department and will be headed by Dara O’Donovan, Social Media Marketing Manager, who is a graduate of UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School. The team was being set up as a direct response to the explosion the company and its clients have seen in social media.
“Our team is an uber-savvy group of digital natives who live, eat and breathe social media for our clients. It’s our mission to capture online conversations, build buzz, drive talkability and ultimately, turn fans into fanatics. We’re excited about working with a diverse mix of new brands this year and helping them unlock their potential in this space.”
