This role forms part of a sophisticated Marketing and Communication department and can be based at our headquarters in the busy Port of Rotterdam, or in Reykjavík, another of our main hubs.

Your core task in this role is to execute and implement this strategy via the highest standards of carefully targeted writing and messaging. Within this context, your daily tasks include:

    • Writing external press releases and internal messaging and announcements;
    • Coordinating with PR agencies, journalists and our social media team for the posting of news stories;
