Jameson Brand Ambassador 2016

Kick-start your career and hone your commercial instincts on a global stage, working for the world’s most iconic Irish Whiskey brand.

Becoming a Jameson Brand Ambassador is a once in a lifetime opportunity to work closely with local brand teams in international markets, and introduce the world to the Jameson way of life. The programme offers the opportunity to become a Brand Ambassador in an international market for a period of two years rotating to a new market after the first 12-months. For those who excel in their role there is the opportunity to stay for a third year moving into roles such as Market Activation Assistants.
The variety of the Brand Ambassador role sets it apart from nearly all other graduate programmes. Brand Ambassadors work across a wide range of marketing activities such as brand activation, education and mentoring. You’ll work with local brand teams and off your own initiative, and will also be on first name terms with bartenders, distributors, bloggers and event organisers. After your initial four weeks of intensive training in our head office in Dublin, you will arrive at your foreign market, meet the team, acclimatise and apply suncream / thermal layers where necessary.

Each market has its own challenges but you can expect the following to be on your to do list:

• Convert 25-35 year olds to the Jameson way of life through trial, market research and local media channels
• Help plan, strategise and initiate marketing opportunities to get Jameson into the hands of urban trendsetters around the world
• Become a social media mogul; Tweeting, blogging and Instafacing (okay we made that one up, but we would expect you stay on top of the latest social media trends) about your progress
• Influence the big players in your market, from distributors to barmen and loyal brand advocates
• Support your local brand team in all their market activations
• Stay one step ahead of our competitors with research and strategy
• Immerse yourself in the local culture and become our eyes and ears on the ground

We are looking for people with an entrepreneurial spirit who have marketing, brand management, project management or other commercial ambitions. As such, we will look for those with a third level degree in a relevant discipline (such as business, marketing or languages for our International Programme) , but we do not rule out any others.

Apart from the opportunity to fast track your international career ambitions with the world’s most iconic and best-selling Irish whiskey brand, some other perks include:

• 4-week induction training programme in Head Office, Dublin
• 1-week comprehensive whiskey education at The Irish Whiskey Academy in Midleton Distillery, Co. Cork
• 12-month international market placement
• Competitive salary
• Two return flights to Ireland per year (for business purposes)
• Mobile phone
• Laptop
• iPad
• Company Car (where applicable in market)
