Core Media values are crystal clear.
They’re drawn from our behaviour and serve as a simple mantra for the business of every day.They’re summed up in the acronym ACT:
Action, Curiosity, Togetherness.
Creating a positive culture and working environment is massively important for Core Media. Our culture is what makes us different to our competitors. Our aim is to inspire talented people to ‘reach for the stars’ and enjoy a healthy work life balance. We encourage this in a number of ways, one of which is the use of creative "chill out" areas. Taking a client call, having a team meeting or brainstorming has never been so bright, or comfortable.
Strategically located in the SOBO District in Dublin 2, we pride ourselves in being in the heart of Dublin’s connective hub which links Grand Canal Dock with the city centre and IFSC. Our offices are based close to major bus routes, Luas stops and Pearse Street DART station is just around the corner. This makes commuting easier for our team. Not to mention, the view from our roof terrace which is one of the best in Dublin.
