Over deze vacature

For our client ASML, YER is looking for a Media Relations Manager to work at the Veldhoven location. It's a fulltime, deta-vast position, beginning immediately and initially lasting for a year via YER, then being converted to a permanent one at ASML.



ASML is a leader in the semiconductor industry. Simply put: we make machines that make chips. Our technology is complex and unique. Our thousands of engineers push technology further every day. People love working here − not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard. And we have a million stories to share. Will you take up the challenge and help us unlock the many stories of ASML to the media?

Job Mission

You will join ASML’s corporate communications team at our headquarters in Veldhoven − a small team with a huge audience. The team currently consists of six communications professionals that focus on strategic messaging and storytelling, as well as external communications, including media relations. 

ASML is becoming increasingly visible and we play an active role in the communities that we are part of. We value the interaction with the world outside our company gates as there is still so much to learn and share. The media are an important element in that interaction. 

This is a media relations position with a focus on corporate and technology-related content. You will work closely with internal stakeholders to develop messaging and media activities. You are a professional spokesperson who is a reliable and friendly contact for journalists. Through your media activities, which are in-line with our brand and business goals, you will support ASML’s reputation. 

Job Description

The focus of this job is on financial/corporate and technology media. You write press releases, arrange media interviews and interact with journalists from the Dutch and international media. You have a high affinity for technology and (near-) native English and Dutch.

In this role, business understanding and recognizing our different target audiences is a prerequisite for successful media relations. You are able to maintain an open and honest relationship with the media at all times, including when the debate is heated and the stakes are high – as sometimes happens. You can be flexible as the media does not always call between 9 and 5. You know what it takes to represent ASML and to be part of the team. Throughout all of this, you keep your focus on what’s really valuable. 


ASML is a successful Dutch high-tech enterprise that produces complex lithography systems used by chip manufacturers in the production of integrated circuits. ASML is at the cutting edge of this technology and delivers systems to all the world's leading chip manufacturers. ASML's employees are among the most creative talents in the fields of physics, mathematics, chemistry, mechanical engineering and software. Every day they collaborate in close-knit multidisciplinary teams in which members listen to and learn from one another and exchange ideas. It is the ideal environment for professional development and personal growth.

ASML is headquartered in Veldhoven, the Netherlands.


You will be employed by YER and seconded to ASML. We offer:

  • Good employee benefits;
  • Excellent guidance from your consultant and YER's back office;
  • Friendly atmosphere and open culture;
  • Community/network with other technology professionals from a variety of multinationals;
  • Events and master classes with interesting speakers and attractive companies;
  • Permanent contract with ASML after one year of employment


Bachelor’s degree in journalism or communications, or a science or engineering degree with relevant post-graduate training.
