If this sounds like you, then you could be our next Jameson International Brand Ambassador.

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 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 bartenders 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
