Ep 67: Developing an Employer Brand for a Nation


The critical role employer branding plays in attracting top tech talent to companies is something we have covered a few times on the podcast. However, what happens when you need to create an employer brand for an entire country? The Irish government recently initiated a project to do just that in order to service the growing need to import top tech talent into the Irish digital economy.

My guest this week is Niall Dowling who is Strategic Director at Atomic, the marketing agency who are delivering the project and its resulting website

In the interview we discuss:

•    The strategic thinking behind the employer brand

•    Some surprising insights from the research that reveal the motivations that drive people to relocate

•    Audience segmentation and personas

•    The importance of quality of career and meaningful work

•    How the brand has been activated and optimised for the target audience.

Niall also shares the results of the project so far and offers his advice to companies looking to attract senior talent from abroad.
