Digital Marketing Institute announces 34 new jobs for 2016

The Dublin-based Digital Marketing Institute has announced 34 new jobs following a lucrative 2015, with the recruitment to take place across 2016.

Founded in 2008 by Irish entrepreneurs Ian Dodson and Anthony Quigley, the Digital Marketing Institute (DMI) has said the announcement of these new positions comes following a year in which it achieved a revenue growth of 86pc in its core businesses.

This, it says, has resulted in a trebling of its turnover over the past three years, which has also seen its employee numbers grow from 20 in 2013 to 47 today.

Since its foundation, the DMI has been producing some of the most widely-accepted digital marketing certifications, with more than 12,500 students and 70 partner institutions partaking in its programmes, from diploma to master’s level.

In August of last year, the DMI agreed to a deal to partner with IBAT College in a bid to expand its certification reach internationally.

The institute has said that the 34 new jobs are to be in the roles of sales, operations and marketing at their headquarters in Dún Laoghaire, bringing their total staff number to 81.

“We are expanding at such a fast pace because the global skills shortage in digital is acute, and we have produced an industry validated standard that is replicable across international markets,” said co-founder and director of the DMI Ian Dodson.

“Having developed our business model successfully over the past number of years, we are in a phase of rapid expansion.
