THIS IS YOU…
#yeswecan #handson #marketing4life
One for all, all for one!
Marketing savvy meets out-of-the-box mindset
Strong communicator, fluent in English writing and speaking, French is a plus!
Great listener with excellent people management and coaching skills
You talk the talk, that’s great! … but you also need to walk the marketing walk when you work with us: advanced skills in Office and experience with Adobe, familiar with the practical aspects and limitations of social media platforms (e.g. LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook), experience with website building (e.g. WordPress) is a plus!
Strong interest in science and tech, and able to translate added value of a scientific approach or technology into a catchy story… but don’t worry, you don’t have to be a hardcore nerd, we already have plenty of those 😊
At least 5 years of working experience in a marketing function, including plotting a marketing strategy, organizing campaigns, working with internal cross-departmental stakeholders and external agents.
Marketing or Communications degrees are a plus but we believe that the right attitude and a healthy dose of creativity will take you even further…
SO WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?
You are responsible for planning, implementing, managing and overseeing our company-wide marketing strategy, and report to higher management on a regular basis.
You create unique fitting marketing materials and organize campaigns for company-wide initiatives and our different analytical brands, supporting our commercial activities and taking into account our company’s core values and tone of voice.
You further develop the digital ecosystem of our company and our brands by building new and/or improving existing websites (including SEA/SEO, website statistics) as well as other digital portals that are relevant to the market segments where we are active.
You ensure our consistent presence on social media (LinkedIn and others) and oversee strategy, organization and content creation. You collect and funnel all fresh ideas, organize brainstorming sessions and report on statistics.
You work closely with our in-house Marketing & Communications Officer and align on daily activities with our mid- and long-term marketing strategy in mind. You coach and provide guidance and supportive training, ensuring continuous development and expansion of know-how and skills.
You collaborate with external partners involved in our marketing activities, such as freelancers, conference organizers, industry suppliers, market research institutions and advertising agencies, with the aim of building a strong network of reliable marketing partners.
You stay on top of the latest marketing trends and platforms.
WHAT WE BRING TO THE TABLE
You will be part of a family-owned and ambitious laboratory organization at the forefront of scientific evolution.
You will unleash your marketing ideas and energy in a unique scientific environment with an open mindset and can-do attitude.
You will join a dynamic team in an international environment.
You will receive an attractive salary in line with your responsibilities and experience.
