Who You Are

You are a passionate and highly engaged person who manages to influence and create strong relationships with your colleagues. It comes natural for you to partner and connect with a range of different stakeholders, since you are curious, open and stay close to where it is happening. You love to be creative and to develop relevant and compelling messages and stories, and have exceptional ability to package and present information. On top of that you are a doer who is proactive, result oriented and not afraid to test and learn from mistakes. You take a lot of pride in delivering high qualitative output with strong attention to details. You have a curiosity for analytics and insights and understand the value of establishing KPIs and reporting for PR.

The fact that this is a new role in a growth company intrigues you since it means that you will have the chance to create something new with your proactive, well-organised approach and can-do-attitude. You are used to taking on a lot of responsibility and enjoy working independently as part of a small team. You don’t leave things to chance, instead you take ownership for the communications agenda, working persistently to bring people onboard.
