Job description

My client is a world-leading global advertising and marketing agency based in Ireland, offering integrated marketing solutions to clients to make brands matter, specialising in creating experiences, designs and communications. Currently, they are seeking to hire a Strategic HR Professional to join their organisation to lead the people function to deliver a best in class service to the business and add value to talent and people plans.
