Journalism & Communications in Ireland (Virtual) | Dublin, Ireland

In one of our longest standing and most productive partnerships, interns will collaborate to market a monthly magazine, publish website material, and coordinate digital content. Intern perspectives add creative vision and improve the overall quality of products. The position includes opportunities to conduct market research, design layouts, edit and proofread content, and more. Interns can expect a fast-paced, multi-faceted work experience as part of the small but dynamic team.

Based in the “Enterprise Cube” in Dun Laoghaire, to the south of Dublin, the organization values close relationships with their clients to gain a deeper understanding of the audience they serve. They remain competitive in a fast-changing market due to their expertise that allows them to combine the richness and permanence of traditional publishing with the functionality and dynamism of digital media.

The internet is immediate, and extremely useful. Print gives richness and depth. Our partner organization combines the two to engage a target audience and build trusted relationships that grow stronger and more profitable over time.

  • Editorial tasks, content production, content migration, website management skills for online media
  • Attend events in the local area, and research topics for the magazine

  • Interns are expected to demonstrate responsibility, professional motivation, flexibility, and effective communication skills.

Language Requirements:
