Corporate Communications Coordinator / Copywriter

As our Corporate Communications Coordinator, you craft compelling copy to bring the EAIE’s mission to life for a variety of audiences and channels. A storyteller at heart, you enjoy the variety that comes from external and internal communications in a dynamic, growing non-profit. In a typical week, you’ll be working on a speech for our senior leadership, transforming complex concepts into an easy to digest video script, brainstorming creative social media captions, and sitting down with a colleague to ensure Office guidelines are clear and concise. You are a creative, hard working, inspiring colleague who thrives in an international team. You report to the Head of Marketing & Communications.

FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM

Responsibilities

  • Collaborate with the team of graphic designers, content specialists, and marketeers to propose and deliver high quality and consistent communications and branding solutions that will improve the experiences we offer to our target audiences.

  •  Develop compelling and authentic copy across all media ranging from press releases, website, and social media to video scripts, event communications, targeted e-mails, and more.

  • Cultivate and strengthen the EAIE's brand voice and tone, always representing our values (collaborative, inclusive, inspiring, excellence).

  • Contribute to positioning the EAIE as a thought leader in the international higher education sector, by supporting our growing press ambitions.

Must-haves

  • Bachelor’s degree in journalism, communications, English or related field.
  • Minimum four years of experience in a similar position.
  • (Near) native English speaker with excellent writing and editing skills in English.

  •  Proven ability to adapt copy tone of voice to align with various audiences.
  • Experience working in the not-for-profit sector.

Your skills

  • You are a strong writer and an even better editor: You believe less is more when it comes to written communication. You are not afraid to ask the 'why' questions and speak up when you think copy needs improvement. You approach your work with confidence and respect for others.
  • You pay attention to the details: You strive for excellence in everything you do. You understand the smallest details matter. Typos are your pet-peeve, but you know when to choose progress over perfection.

  • You see the bigger picture: You're able to break a large project into bite-size pieces while always keeping your eye on the big goal. You think two steps ahead, are able to connect the dots, and are aware of the consequences of decisions and/or actions for the entire organisation.

  • You are a team player: You possess a unique ability to work with a variety of people at all levels of an organisation to achieve a shared goal. You’re excited to work cross-functionally with other teams and with individuals from different backgrounds.
