Do your stories always end well?

All brand stories are unique. But some brand stories are more unique than others. Visma also wants to tell a unique brand story. The good news is that we can do just that, for instance our on co-creation with customers that we help to work smarter. Or together with the successful cycling and skating teams that we sponsor. Yet there is still a world to be won, because although our name recognition is growing with every podium place, we are not yet at # 1 in the consideration set in all companies and governments. Will you help us to reach that position?

What does the vacancy entail?

To realize that ambition, you have Oscar-worthy control over all PR and internal communication processes. What do we want to tell to whom?

It is important that you make strategic choices; visibility is great, but visibility at the right time and place is even better. Although you are the undisputed PR master, you are not on your own. You like to work closely with our Country Director and branding colleagues, and the  business itself. To successfully align our stories for instance. We want to scale up our PR activities considerably in the coming period. A unique opportunity to get off the starting blocks quickly and make an impact right away!
