What will you be doing?

A lot of different things. You will play an extensive role in guiding our clients through their digital transformation.

What do we expect from you?

You know your way around digital and you get project and program management like no other, because you have dealt with it for multiple years. You always see the bigger picture and can talk strategy, branding, design, marketing and development at the same time. Besides from that you think from customers perspective and translate this to actions for the team. You don’t mind working (partly) from home – at least while the Covid-19 measures last 

In addition to above you have:

What do we offer in return? 

Excellent employment terms and conditions, a competitive salary and plenty room to develop yourself. How quickly your career and salary advance depends entirely on you – with some help from your mentor, of course. Our internal Academy will also help you to continually develop your skills. In addition, you can also follow a work-related educational program with an external provider (in consultation with your mentor). And because work, learning and private life are increasingly intertwined, you can arrange your working hours flexibly, to match your creative peaks.
