Marketing & Communications - Temporary Full-Time | 19801
We are HERE
HERE is seeking a Senior Communications Specialist (m/f) in a one year maternity cover role to support the work of the Media Relations team. In this role, you will help position HERE as the leader in the mapping and location intelligence business around the world, playing a key role in several different global communications activities.
You will be part of our international Media Relations team, based in Berlin and Chicago, that supports an exciting and growing brand and get to communicate about a powerful portfolio of products and services. One of the challenges is to resonate with media that are absorbed with bigger-name technology companies. To help us stand out, we are looking for a new colleague who can demonstrate how his/her creative thinking has made a difference in current or past roles.
You have a strategic role as spokesperson for journalists, as the main contact with our PR agencies and as mediator between HERE's representatives and media. A significant part of your role will support our work in European markets including France, Germany and the Netherlands.
You have experience in driving communication in a field of technology (cloud or automotive technologies are very welcome). You are able to think and write like a journalist, translating complex technology concepts into easily understood language for general audiences. For you, crafting crisply written communication under time pressure is energizing rather than exhausting.
You feel comfortable working with different time zones, interacting with media in a highly volatile environment. Therefore, you are bringing a good network of international media, influencers and bloggers.
You don't enjoy being bored: you might be tasked to lead and run communications projects around events taking place in your market.
What you bring with you
You have a university degree and at least three years of media relations, corporate communications, PR agency or solid press/journalism experience. Written and spoken English (native level) are a must, with fluency in either French, German or Dutch an advantage. You are willing to travel to take part in press conferences, interviews and meetings with internal and external stakeholders.
What we offer
We will support you in delivering your day to day tasks and achieving your goals. Personal development is highly encouraged at HERE. You can take different courses and trainings at our online University and also join cross-team projects within our Talent Platform. Our Berlin office is located in Mitte with a lot of public transportation options and facilities (restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies). To keep your mind and body fit, we have a fitness studio, a volleyball team and a lot of kicker-tournaments. What are you waiting for? Apply now and make HERE your destination. We are just getting started...
