Your career starts here Who are Vizeum Ireland? An agency with a restless spirit… Vizeum Ireland is one of the most progressive and fastest growing media agencies in Ireland. We offer the best combination of a small, dynamic culture (c.22 people) alongside global network resources and capabilities from being part of Vizeum global and the Aegis network. This, together with the quality of our people, enables us to provide our clients with the best strategic thinking, trading and execution in media today. We truly believe that the most exciting part of the communications business is the Media. Here at Vizeum, we don’t claim to do the jobs of creative, brand or PR agencies. Media gets our full attention and we see digital as an exciting avenue to give audiences the full picture on our clients’ brands.

Why Vizeum? Where we are and where we are going The agency is a dynamic and fun environment with strong business success. We operate on a single floor, with an inclusive, informal, creative culture. Our mission statement, Start From a Different Place, is about doing just that in everything we do. Vizeum is not stuffy or bureaucratic. While we have dramatically grown in the past two years, doubling our size, we have maintained a sense of “family”. Every Irish agency talks about putting digital at the heart of their business. We were the first Irish agency to take digital to the next level in this way.


Why Vizeum ? Key brands Our client list comprises of a mix of International and local brands, from FMCG to Financial Services, from Motors to Telecoms with activities from direct response to long term brand building. We aim to develop great thinking and build innovation and creativity in the execution of our strategies. In order to accomplish this, an integrated approach is key to our continued success.


As we work on one floor in a truly integrated way, all of our graduates get to know about all the different roles in the agency. Most of our graduate roles are in our Planning, Digital/Online and implementation areas. However, you will have an opportunity to learn from all of our specialisms.

PLANNING: Vizeum’s planning department develops core strategic, implementational and communications planning skills and does so in an environment which actively nurtures creative and digital thinking, unlike many other agencies. Planning at Vizeum goes beyond the traditional disciplines; seeking to identify mutually beneficial opportunities for clients and media owners, as well as to build the most effective strategies based on clear insight.

Our desire is that you develop practical experience which will enhance your college learnings. You will report to a line manager who will oversee your activities and ensure you r graduate experience is positive and beneficial to your career development.

DIGITAL: The Vizeum digital team, based in-house unlike most other agencies, draws together all of the Group’s digital businesses to provide an integrated full service solution to clients.

What will I do all day?

IMPLEMENTATION: The implementation team play an integral role in the commercial success of Vizeum. A role in implementation involves working closely with the planning team on the strategy of a brand and translating this into effective media placement. Being experts in a given media (TV, radio, print), you will advise, plan, negotiate and buy the optimal media plan in line with the clients’ needs.

Entrepreneurial – means pushing forward creative and novel ideas and solutions that will engage potential consumers. We go beyond just thinking about everyday solutions. Commercial – means having an ability to understand numerical information, how we can add value to our clients’ business objectives and what ideas will be relevant to their brands. Collaborative – means being at ease in networking situations, listening and supporting others and the ability to work in a team. Graduates are vital to the success of the agency. If you are successful in joining us we expect you to make a positive contribution.

What’s in it for you? If you have a passion for media, are hungry to learn and would like the opportunity to develop your career then Vizeum is the place for you.
