About this vacancy
An incredible chance for professionals within the Communication, to work at one of the biggest and most complex companies in the Netherlands.
A modern, knowledge-driven company, in many ways, runs on communication. Empowered employees need knowledge and information to do their jobs, and need to understand the big picture to make smart decisions. Leaders who understand the potential of communications to help achieve business results need the right tools, platforms and hands-on support to increase their impact. Change is constant and needs to be explained and advocated. As communications professionals, we believe we are much more than information purveyors or internal journalists. We seek to support the company in raising its communications competence, improving its communication flows, and thereby increase employee engagement and achieve better results.

The department is entering a new phase and a global transformation plan will affect a significant part of the organization. Together with the head of Global Quality you will orchestrate and deliver the global communication activities in support of this transformation, driving and cascading the change story and actions down through the organization. Activating and engaging the community will be key. We are looking to you to:
- Deliver a communications strategy and plan that connects the various communications priorities. Translate the plan into concrete initiatives and make sure they are delivered in a timely manner. Align with stakeholders and know when to challenge and when to jump on opportunities.
- Collaborate with the internal communications team to ensure strategic and operational alignment with strategic, business and relevant change topics.
