In Dublin, the ibm.com organisation offers an entry point to IBM. We have 500 professionals selling a wide range of IBM products to a customer base in Europe, usually to their native country. They sell everything from Hardware servers to Software licences, to Services offerings such as maintenance and internet security. We communicate with our customers over the phone, through the web and through occasional site visits, closing deals that range in size from small to very large.
What we need now is a Communications or Journalism graduate to help us promote this exciting sales channel internally, help keep ibm.com teams in Dublin and outside informed of our development and also to help us promote our growing organisation to potential recruits. IBM has a well-developed worldwide communications network and a big part of this role will be to ensure the Dublin organisation is linked in to that in a constructive way.
