About Connelly Partners

Connelly Partners (CP) is a full service creative agency with offices in Dublin, Boston and Vancouver. On the back of recent wins, we are growing the team in Dublin and it’s an exciting time to be part of a hard-working, entrepreneurial team that spans 3 time zones. As an account executive, you will play an integral part in growing the agency, our culture and impacting how we do what we do. As the Defiantly Human agency, our mission is to shine a light on human truths and their power in a data driven world. We use technology to amplify humanity, not replace it.

About the Position

We need a resourceful, professional and motivated account executive who will be responsible for supporting multiple integrated accounts in the insurance, automotive and transportation categories with a focus on social and digital.
