The position
From deep under the water to high up in the air, our projects are often unique. They offer a great opportunity to show and tell the world about Van Oord’s leading position in marine contracting. At Van Oord, we are very proud of the things we do, from laying hundreds of kilometers of pipeline to building complete offshore wind farms. For this reason we like to draw attention to these projects. For example on our website, at events and exhibitions worldwide and on various social media. Illustrated as far as possible with photos and films.
For our Communication & Markets Department, locations Rotterdam and Gorinchem, we are looking for a Communication Advisor (fulltime). In this role you provide all kind of communication support for Van Oord. In particular for our offshore wind activities and worldwide events in which we participate. 

Your responsibilities
As a specialist in this area you know how communication works from A to Z and the various social media channels have no secrets to you. You will be part of the centrally-led communications team of ten people and you will contribute to articles, the Van Oord website, our digital channels and by organizing business events. You will also give support to the Offshore Wind business unit on various communication issues.
