  • You have extensive expertise in the digital domain (campaigns, social media, Google Analytics, etc.) and have a broad understanding of digital marketing in relation to our target groups.
  • As an excellent communicator, you are used to communicating productively with demanding international stakeholders and you lead by example when managing stakeholders at various levels.
  • You enjoy implementing new processes and procedures and you use your autonomy and combined expertise to change behaviours for the long term.
