Marketing & Communications Manager (1,0 FTE)

To strengthen our Marketing & Communications team, EFDN is looking for a strong Marketing & Communications Manager with special affinity and experience in social media. The purpose of the position is to develop, plan and manage the implementation of our marketing and communication campaigns.

The Marketing & Communications Manager is responsible for the daily communication workflows, which consist of managing the various communication channels and creating awareness for our projects and exposure (“PR”) of EFDN’s own activities and those of our partners.

Based on EFDN’s mission, vision, and strategy, a clear vision of marketing and communication should be developed, supplemented by own insight into ESG/CSR (in combination with social and football) trends.

For communication, the strategy should be set out in a communication strategy and plan with a logical connection between purpose, means, target groups, and channels, of which our own website(s) and social media channels are the most important. This plan should be translated into a communication calendar, of which the half-yearly conferences and the annual More Than Football Action weeks are a very important component. Other annually recurring deliverables are the Best Practice Handbooks and Manuals of the various projects, which must be delivered in the right template by the designers and in cooperation with the project managers.

For marketing, the sharpening of EFDN’s strategy and branding also means – in cooperation with the CEO responsible for Partnerships – a good translation into propositions for commercial partners.

The Marketing Communications Manager reports to the Operations Manager, and manages about 3 permanent employees himself, in addition to managing external parties for the delivery of specific images (e.g. of the Conferences).

Finally, in 2024 EFDN will celebrate its 10th anniversary! For this, too, a communication plan needs to be delivered and implemented.

Because you will be working with international colleagues at our office in Breda, as well as with various European organisations, a thorough knowledge of the English language is a must.

Our driven team is looking for you to help us promote our social mission in European football!
