Media Analyst

Immediate start


Founded in 2008, PublicRelay has a simple goal: to help PR and communications professionals understand how their work impacts business goals. In an era of a seemingly endless amount of news, we help Fortune 500 companies and federal agencies make sense of the media landscape and understand the trends shaping their industries. We partner with C-suite clientele to help them see the “so what” in their media coverage so they can plan their next move.

PublicRelay is looking for an enthusiastic and hard-working Media Analyst to join our diverse team at our Dublin, Ireland office! This role manages multiple daily client deliverables and works closely with executive clients to identify pertinent trends in their media coverage, proactively providing them media intelligence insights and analysis reports. This person should be a self-starter, enjoy a dynamic work environment, and thrive in a high-pressure, deadline-oriented schedule.

Our analysts assess traditional, social, and broadcast media from all over the world to provide clients with a highly refined view of their most important. The media intelligence that PublicRelay provides allows our clients to develop sophisticated strategies for promoting their companies and brands.

While PublicRelay is headquartered just outside of Washington DC, this position is for our Waterford, Ireland (Southeast Region) office and will start work remotely due to COVID-19.
