Social Democrats: Press Director

Press Director

A core part of our Parliamentary team supporting our TDs, and our Councillors and Party, delivering effective communications strategies to engage with the public, with print, broadcast and digital media, and managing our day-to-day communications.

The Social Democrats have had considerable success in the last number of years building a new party that puts social democracy to the forefront of Irish politics. We tripled our TDs in the General Election in February, following on from our successes in the Local Elections last year.

We are now seeking to build on that success to expand up the reach of the party and our vision for social democracy in Ireland.

We are building a new team to support the Parliamentary Party and are looking for a communications professional who will lead our work engaging with the public, with broadcast, print and digital media and with our members. A new Press Director will head up the implementation of our communications strategy, working closely with the Party leaders, the Parliamentary Party, the Senior Political Director, and with our Councillors and the General Secretary.

The ideal candidate will have strong communications instincts and know-how and will have a strong track record in developing and implementing effective communications strategies, as well as delivery in the day-to-day communications role. We value a strong work ethic and a dedication to bringing about real and meaningful political change.

If you have a passion for politics, a passion for driving far-reaching change and a personal vision for a better, fairer Ireland and how that can be achieved through politics and public debate, then we would really like to hear from you. Check out for further details and how to apply.
