Open Position: Creative communicator (Medior)

News > 4 days per week in Utrecht*

Are you our new dynamic and versatile communications creator? Our team is working hard to build the foundations of a sustainable society and is looking for a communications all-star (Medior). We seek someone who writes, publishes, and helps to put our name out there in press and social media. Are you engaged with the subject of (systemic) sustainability? Are you hands-on to produce content, and are flexible in your writing style for accurate, flowing, and effective communication? Do you have excellent communication skills in Dutch and English, and a knack for social media and writing articles? Are you committed to being a force for good in the world? Then we’d love you to join our team, for 4 days a week in Utrecht, with room to grow with us into the future.

What's all this about?

We’re looking for a Medior communications expert, with at least 5 years of experience writing in English and Dutch in similar areas. You’ll help further the development of our PR and communications strategy, and manage the day-to-day tasks that roll out of that for a small team. You write communications in Dutch and English in the form of articles, social media posts, webpages, and newsletters, and publish them online in relevant media.

About you

There's always plenty to do, and you anticipate and take initiative. We're a thriving bunch, and there's never a dull moment here. Showing initiative, and being a creative and energetic problem-solver are highly appreciated. Being able to work independently is a must, with quick turnarounds and interacting with the team.

For this position, we’d especially like someone who enjoys exploring new ways we can express our passion on different media, as well as keeping up with sharing and tracking the happenings in our community. You bring a positive, can-do attitude, and always look for practical solutions. It helps if you have a network to publish articles, people you can connect with to place us in interviews, podcasts, newspapers, and other media.


  • We're a team of sustainability pioneers... so you must love working green. Our subjects in systemic sustainability can be abstract, which need opening up to a broader audience in our comms.
  • 5 years of experience, with writing examples in related subjects.
  • You're an excellent communicator: you listen well, are patient, and love to learn. Your Dutch & English writing and speaking skills are excellent, and you love to write in both languages.
  • You love and have experience with organizing creative events.
  • You're entrepreneurial, a go-getter with initiative, not afraid to try and fail, get up and try again.
  • You know your way around computers, happy to work with Google Docs, and preferably have experience with Adobe InDesign.
  • You are organized, on time, and meet deadlines.

Our offer to you

  • Dynamic, visible role within a pioneering sustainability and design consultancy.
  • Kind, witty, helpful colleagues with a wide-variety of backgrounds.
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Salary indication for 4 days/week: € 2478,= gross (bruto), excluding holiday pay, for a 6-month period. Our aim is to extend this for a longer period.
  • Public transport card and a phone budget.
  • Ticket to our 3-day Introduction to Integrated Sustainability Training (when available COVID wise).
  • Beautiful office space at UCo, a community for sustainability pioneers in Utrecht, which we may even be able to return to over the next half year.
