Do you like telling gripping stories? Then being a Communication Officer at Van Oord is the job for you. From deep under the water to high up in the air, our projects are often unique and are without exception brimming with technical, financial and organisational feats. Do you want to provide perfect communications support for our business units Offshore Oil & Gas and Offshore Wind? If so, apply for the temporary role of Communication Officer at Van Oord!
At Van Oord, we are very proud of the things we do, from laying thousands of kilometres of pipeline to building complete wind farms at sea. For this reason, we like to draw attention to them, for example on our website, in the form of press releases, at events and, not least, on various social media. Illustrated as far as possible with photos and films (take a look at our Vimeo channel).
One of our communication advisers is taking some time off. For this reason, we want you to keep our communication going between January and August. As part of a team of eight people, you will contribute to articles, the website, our digital channels and events. In between times, you will share ideas about how we can (even) better put the Van Oord brand and our reputation on the map. This is a brilliant temporary role that will call on your knowledge and ingenuity in Gorinchem and far beyond.
You are an experienced specialist who knows how communication works from A-Z. You combine that experience with a stress-resistant and flexible attitude, because the work here can get hectic. At those times, it's all hands on deck, but that doesn't put you off. In addition, you bring the following to the table:
- a higher vocational (HBO) degree in the area of communication and affinity with the maritime / offshore, construction and/or energy worlds
- around 5 years experience in the field
- excellent command of the English language
This is an all-round role with a unique company. You will come into contact with all aspects of communication, from writing and editing to online and social media, and from supporting trade show activities to making communication plans. An additional bonus is that we offer you a lot of independence. You will have a temporary contract with an attractive package and room to develop professionally, internationally too, so that you can continue to grow within your role.
