Become a company director at Clearbox

04. 10. 2022

Are you a communications director who’s hit the ceiling in your current role?

Become a company director at Clearbox.

We’re looking for a new company director to join our forward-thinking agency where we never do things “because we’ve always done it that way.” A company where top talent is nourished, and pushing boundaries is highly sought.

What you will be doing

The role of the company director is key to Clearbox’s future development and continued success. This role will suit someone who is ambitious, forward-thinking and has an enviable network of PR industry contacts. A proven track record of winning clients, developing emerging talent and managing large budgets and campaigns is a must.

The new director will deliver a continuous flow of new business and identify and capitalise on future opportunities to expand our services.

The director will play a part in evolving our culture, something that is at the centre of everything we do. We have a strongly defined culture here at Clearbox which is centred on the growth of our people and service to our clients. As times change and we evolve as a business and a team, our culture needs to grow to reflect that. This role will be key to this.

Our new director will define the business plan to achieve our targets, while delivering the best work of their career. This role is about being part of the senior team (and board), setting the direction for the business, and being creative with how we approach an industry that is set in its ways.

The director will also assume day-to-day management and operational responsibilities, helping to run the business.

This role will be renumerated competitively, and there is a long-term incentive plan that includes bonuses and/or profit share.

The role also offers an exciting opportunity to work across Europe with our sister agency in Berlin, Laika, on shared clients, staff exchange programmes and joint events.

Who we are

Clearbox is an award-winning PR, CSR and social media agency. The company is nine years old, has a team of nine, and works with a wide range of local, national and global clients who are leaders in their field.

We work with high profile brands like Amazon, Universal Pictures and Zoopla, local companies who are successful on the world stage like 3EN and Synergy Learning, international brands like ROOM and Neptune Software and ambitious challenger brands shaking up their markets. This includes Boundary Brewing, Hey Chick! and Plate Up.

Our innovative working practices, incredible clients, talented team, and ultra-modern working environment offers a strong platform for driven, ambitious people who aspire to be elite performers.

At our heart is a passion for creating pathways for young professionals in Northern Ireland to work with amazing clients and deliver meaningful communications programmes that deliver impact for the brands we work with. We’ve operated a successful graduate recruitment programme since we opened our doors. Earlier this year we launched Absolute Beginners, an apprenticeship programme for people who couldn’t or didn’t go into higher education.
