A Month of Being an RNN-er





The old adage ‘time flies when you’re having fun,’ is certainly an accurate description of my first month at RNN Communications. I can hardly believe that I’m nearing the end of my fifth week already as I write this blog!

In 2017, I made a career change from local journalism and joined the world of PR/Communications and I haven’t looked back since. Over the past five years, I have worked in-house and this is my second role within a PR agency.

Truth be told, from the moment I entered the colourful, quirky and lively office in Ballynahinch and met all of my lovely colleagues, I knew that I was going to be very happy in my new role as Account Manager.

One of the things I love the most about RNN Communications (aside from the better work-life balance afforded by the four-day working week) is the fact that no two days are ever the same. We work alongside a variety of clients covering a plethora of different sectors which means that my daily tasks range from writing press releases and content to helping to organise events that are taking place across Ireland.

Another aspect that I highly value at RNN Communications is the structure of the organisation. To ensure that clients’ needs are met and that staff are supported, RNN Communications operates a ‘buddy’ system, whereby two members of staff will work closely together. As well as feeling better supported, having a ‘buddy’ also enables you to learn from each other, which is always a plus in the world of PR/Communications – every day’s a school day in this game!

Thirdly, we all love a bit of craic at RNN Communications which is also vitally important. We work hard and deliver fantastic quality work for our clients, but we make sure to have a laugh along the way – what would be the point of working if it wasn’t fun?

Although my career with RNN Communications is still in its infancy, I feel so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work as part of an award-winning agency that has acquired a portfolio of highly esteemed clients. I can’t wait to continue my development as a PR professional and to help brands, social enterprises and businesses located across Ireland to tell their stories.
