US analytics firm to create 20 jobs in Cavan

  • US media monitoring firm PublicRelay has announced plans to establish a new office in Cavan, creating 20 new jobs over the next two years.

    PublicRelay Ireland, Ltd. is currently looking to hire its initial team of associate analysts and a manager to begin work before the end of 2019.

    The analytics company which already has headquarters in Dublin, said that Cavan was selected as the location for its second Irish office partially due to Cavan’s newly opened Digital Hub where the company initially will be based.

    “The educated, friendly workforce and proximity to our Dublin office make Cavan an ideal location to expand our presence in Ireland,” added Eric Koefoot, CEO of PublicRelay.

Without a doubt, the announcement will come as a boost to Cavan town and the surrounding area. It will also provide more local jobs for people who want to work where they live.”

    Founded in 2008, PublicRelay uses analytics to help communications and marketing professionals to plan and measure influencer engagement, reputation management and the competitive landscape, whilst relating them back to business objectives.
