Except Integrated Sustainability is a Certified B Corporation, and a pioneering sustainability and design consultancy. We use systems thinking and multidisciplinary teams to reimagine what’s possible and build the foundations of a sustainable society. We have incredible, game-changing stories to tell. And we’re looking for a strong communications lead to help us get these stories out into the world.
This position is based at UCo in Utrecht (currently working remotely due to COVID-19). Fluent Dutch and English are required.
As our experienced, creative, and proactive Communications+ Specialist, you drive and execute our ambitious storytelling campaign, to inspire, educate, and engage our community and (potential) clients. More than just a marketeer, you are an active contributor to our written content, and one of the primary faces of Except. You help spread the word and increase Except’s visibility internationally, and specifically in the Netherlands.
We are a small, driven team, which means we all wear multiple hats and exercise different skill sets. In addition to the core communication tasks, the Communications+ Specialist will also assist the Chief Operations Officer/Office Manager with a variety of general office-related tasks, as needed. This role is ideal for effective multitaskers who have strong organization and execution skills, and who are energized by social interactions and task diversity.
Key tasks and responsibilities include:
We're a thriving bunch, and there's never a dull moment around here. Showing initiative and ownership, and being a creative and energetic problem-solver are essential. You bring a positive, can-do attitude , and know how to execute amidst incomplete information and competing priorities.
Are you the communications all-star our dream team needs? Send an email with your CV and 2 page motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 13, 2020. To demonstrate your proficiency in Dutch and English, submit your motivation letter as 2 pages, and send one page in Dutch and one page in English.
