Create, Share, Learn

Havas is a fully integrated creative agency in the heart of Dublin. We are a diverse group of innovators, strategists and digital obsessives, working together in honest collaboration with our clients to create, share and learn.

Create
If it communicates, we create it – above, below, inside, outside, digital, analogue. Nothing makes us happier than turning business problems into creative solutions for our clients, and our integrated approach supports creative involvement across all five floors.

Share
How can an idea become a better idea? By sharing it. We encourage the sharing of knowledge and ideas within Havas and with our clients. The informal spaces at our offices help promote this openness. And our global Havas partners actively share information, opening up insights with international reach.

Learn
Inquisitive minds never stop learning. We learn from our clients; our clients learn from us. Our progressive internship programme encourages young minds to learn within an agency environment, so one day we’ll be learning new things from them.

Ashly is seriously focused in her planning role at Havas. Strange then how this single-mindedness doesn’t seem to apply to her never-ending stream of hobbies: tarot, fresh pasta making, creative writing, dog training, yoga, storytelling and improv. And that was just last week.
