Faculty of Economics and Business
The Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) has approximately 6,500 students and 650 staff members who form an informal, personal and inspiring academic community. 20% of our students and 25% of our staff are international. FEB provides an ambitious, open and dynamic working environment and encourages its staff members to innovate. The Faculty is AACSB and EQUIS accredited and is thus among the top 1% of business schools worldwide.
The Department of Marketing, International Affairs and Communications (MIC) of FEB supports and advises the Faculty Board, the programme directors and the departmental heads on developing and improving the positioning of FEB’s education and research for national and international target groups. MIC has approximately 20 members of staff and provides support in such areas as internationalisation, marketing and recruitment, internal and external communication, video production, event organisation and research communication. The Department is part of Education and Communication Services (ECS), which also includes the Exchange Office, the Student Administration Office, Study Advice and Educational Quality.
This vacancy is due to the departure of our current officer. The new officer develops and realises the international marketing policy for FEB, within the framework of the policy of the University of Groningen. This policy is focused on increasing the quantity and diversity of high quality international students in FEB’s degree programmes. This means that the officer is involved in the positioning of FEB and of the University. The officer has a distinct international and intercultural perspective and is able to independently lead marketing projects (2-4 project members, mainly from the ECS department), for example in the field of (digital) marketing campaigns, branding and the follow up on leads. The officer can also be deployed as a project leader for ECS-wide projects. Within the University of Groningen, cooperation in the field of international marketing between different organisational units (beyond just FEB) is increasing. The officer should be able to represent FEB in University-wide consultative committees and projects.
The officer is expected to work in a results-oriented way and in harmony with clients, colleagues and project teams. The officer will report to the head of the MIC department (also Head of ECS).
The following skills, abilities and qualifications are required:
• university level, Dutch HBO or bachelor’s degree; preferably trained in the field of marketing (bachelor’s or master’s degree)
• relevant international work experience and subject-specific knowledge and experience (at least three years) in the field of international marketing (website, campaigns, videos, follow up, funnel, new media, key messages, copywriting, advertising)
• affinity with the area of Economics and Business
• thorough knowledge of and experience with online marketing and social media
• demonstrable experience in working on a project basis and leading projects
• excellent proficiency in English language
• good team worker with a results-oriented and creative attitude and excellent communication and collaboration skills (including intercultural skills)
• a conceptual thinker and ‘do-er’, capable of thinking strategically but also of organizing and be involved in the implementation of strategy/policy.
Since FEB aims to further develop into a truly international organisation, we especially invite international candidates, or candidates with significant relevant international experience to apply.
