  • We provide strategic advice, market development and user uptake support to EU institutions and governmental organisations, helping to align policies with societal needs and market or technology trends.
  • We help universities, start-ups, SMEs and large companies to commercialise their research, scale up their activities and bring the benefits of their solutions to a wider audience.
  • We partner with the above actors to design high-quality, high-impact projects utilising innovative technologies.

About the role

We have ongoing communication, marketing and promotional work linked to our contracts with EU institutions and agencies and to our R&D projects. We are aiming to further expand this portfolio in light of new tenders and projects which are on the horizon at the moment.

In this context, we are seeking to recruit a Communication and Marketing Assistant to complement our small (but very excitable) Communications Team, and help us to scale up our outreach and promotional activities.

The responsibilities of the new team member are split across six categories, and will include (but not be limited to) the following tasks:

Communication strategy and planning

  • Supporting the development of communication strategies for our projects and contracts
  • Refining and adapting existing strategies in light of new information, feedback or monitoring data
  • Supporting the development of implementation and delivery plans and schedules for editorial, publication, email and social media

Content creation

  • Supporting the production of all communication outputs, including liaison with external suppliers, such as
    • Graphic designers
    • Animators
    • Videographers and photographers
    • Web designers
    • Layout artists
  • Primary production of communication materials such as website content, banners, social media posts, leaflet/brochure contents, storyboards, graphical concepts, etc.
  • Editing, proof-reading and quality control of communication outputs produced by other parties, internal or external

Digital marketing and social media

  • Supporting the execution of digital marketing campaigns
  • Supporting the execution of paid advertising campaigns
  • Managing one or more social media accounts

Monitoring and Impact Assessment

  • Supporting the management of monitoring and impact assessment tools (e.g. social media and website KPIs) for our ongoing campaigns and web properties
  • Conduct analyses of monitoring data and extract actionable insights

Business Development

  • Supporting new comms-related business development activities: Opportunity monitoring, identification and assessment of potential partnerships, bid management support including consortium building.

Project Leadership and Administration

  • Dependent on needs and skill, the new team member may be required to carry out management and reporting duties linked to our new or ongoing externally-funded research and innovation projects.

What we are looking for

The ideal candidate would be trained in communication, marketing or social media, with 1 or more years of experience in the field. As with all our team members, we are on the look-out for versatility, willingness to learn, creativity and ambition, and a strong motivation to work for a small yet fast-growing SME.

The key ingredients are a combination of strong interpersonal skills, critical thinking, good organisational and problem-solving capabilities, the ability to understand and communicate complex ideas effectively, a critical eye for a good design and – above all – an excellent grasp of modern communication and marketing practices.

Here are the specific traits we are looking for:

Essential

  • At least 1 year of experience in a digital/social media marketing or communications role
  • Knowledge and understanding of modern communication and marketing practices
  • A relevant degree underpinning the above professional skillset
  • Excellent written and spoken English (C2 level)
  • Ability to work well both independently and within larger teams
  • Good project management skills, including a strong ability to perform well in tight timeframes and to multi-task
  • Intimate understanding of Microsoft Excel, Word and Powerpoint, and working knowledge of WordPress CMS

Desirable

  • Understanding of the European Space Programmes and their applications
  • Demonstrated experience of delivering work in or for European institutions or agencies
  • Hands-on European project management experience (e.g. Horizon 2020)
  • Strong proposal-writing skills (especially for European funding schemes)
  • Ability to use professional graphic design software
  • Mastery of Microsoft Excel, Word and Powerpoint

What we offer

Evenflow offers the opportunity to:

  • Play a strong role in a young, dynamic and steadily growing company;
  • Enjoy an upbeat, inclusive and comfortable working environment (even when working from home!), in which your ideas are valued and your work-life balance is respected;
  • Work on various aspects of exciting, high-tech projects in a wide range of application domains (agriculture, environment, energy, transport, etc.);
  • Develop professionally and enhance your transferable skill-set as well as your thematic expertise;
  • Travel, meet clients and build your professional network across Europe (when the pandemic-related measures allow);
  • Earn a competitive salary, take on well-defined responsibilities from the outset and shape your future role within the team as the company grows.
