About us

Core is Ireland's largest marketing communications company with over 300 people working across the key areas of marketing communications - research, data science, strategy, planning, creative development and implementation. We are now a collective of nine practices, working towards a single purpose - to expand the possibilities of what brands can achieve. 

Our wonderful people are at the centre of our success. As a company with a united purpose, we believe that as a Core family, we can do great things together. The biggest drivers of our success have been our amazing people along with our commitment to the Great Place to Work program. We are continually striving to create a place where people can find not just jobs, but genuine fulfilment and a sense that they and their work are valued and valuable.

It is essential that we keep building a high-trust working environment that supports our people and enables them to flourish. There is no magic formula for becoming a great place to work. Instead, it involves working together, through constant change, to match the personal dreams and ambitions of our people with the aspirations of the organisation.

What employees say

The flexibility in how we work and where we work has given me the opportunity to continue working full-time while also being a mum of two. The investment in technology has allowed many parents to continue their career development and not feel forced to choose between work and family life. A decade ago, being a working mum in the media industry was not a typical occurrence -  I am now the norm. Core supports parents and non-parents alike.

What defines us

We believe that our culture is too important to be left to chance, instead, it must be based on core beliefs that are fostered and development at every possible opportunity. In order for this to happen, we need to ensure that people have the necessary tools, resources, support and flexibility. Our benefits form part of this:

Work life balance - our 'Core Hours' and remote working allow freedom and flexibility. We also have a paid sabbatical programme in place to thank employees for their longevity of service.

Family Friendly - we offer paid Maternity, Paternity and Parental leave along with family-focused policies.

Planning for the Future - life assurance from day one and an employer contributory pension after a qualifying period.

Health and Well-being - stress-busting massages on site, recreational contribution and an onsite barber. We also offer health insurance for you and your children, up to 18 years of age. Health screenings and flu vaccinations are also available every Autumn.

Learning - you will be sure to be at the top of your game with our centre of excellence, offering courses from the fundamentals of marketing to becoming a great leader.

A few extra's – including a mentor programme, freshness Friday's to dust off the cobwebs, generous holiday allowance, company days at Christmas and birthday's off work.

What inspires us

Why we work determines how well we work, our purpose is to expand the possibilities of what our employees and our brands can achieve.  

This core belief is at the forefront of everything we do. We work not just to be good at what we do but to be the best at what we do, pushing the boundaries and leading the way not just for our clients, but for ourselves. 

Creating an environment that is inspiring, supportive and exciting is the key to this is. Our culture is what makes us different from our competitors and we realise that being inspired isn’t all about being the biggest. Inspiring talented people to ‘reach for the stars’ is what we do best.

We ensure that employees have the freedom to perform at their best. We encourage employees to participate in formulating the company’s strategic business plans.  It is our employees that make us different and that inspires us every day. 

Career and jobs

Application tips

People are key to success in any industry, but within marketing communications, their importance takes on an even greater dimension. 

An organisation like ours differs from other corporate working environments. We refer to ourselves as a family. It is important that anyone joining our family not only enjoys the way we work but can thrive in our environment. We believe in creating a diverse culture with diversity and inclusion playing an important part of our recruitment process. We recognise it is important to build our teams with people who can challenge and change the way we think to help us reach the level of excellence we want to achieve. 

This feeling of family and being part of something that is progressive and innovative keeps us motivated and inspires us to do great work. We just want brilliant people - whether that means university degrees or life experiences. We are looking for candidates who reflect our values of Actions, Exploration, Excellence and Togetherness. What's even more important is that people demonstrate a passion for what we do, and have the ambition to succeed.  

Without great people, we have nothing to offer our clients. Want to join the team? 



Our great workplace

We have come a long way since we first opened our doors back in 2000 with just seven employees. Today we are more than 320 people across 9 practices working together to expand the possibilities of what brands can achieve. 

Our culture as a great place to work has always been the sum of a million little things rather than one big thing - but each one of them has a vital role to play in making us a great place to work. The Core family is something special and for those who work here is it vital we maintain this as we continue to evolve as a company. 

Our values are at the heart of everything we do. They shape who we are and how we behave to allow is to work in a connected and collaborative way as one Core family. When we apply our values this is what we mean ...

  • Action: We deliver results and make every action count. There is no better time to make things happen than right now. 
  • Exploration: We believe exploration is the engine of change. We are curious and we support each other in breaking new ground. 
  • Excellence: Every aspect of our work gets our full attention. 
  • Togetherness: By truly embracing collaboration, sharing ideas freely and empowering one another, we will create work that is more powerful and transformative than our individual efforts can ever be.
