Nedstar is more than just a specialised sourcing partner of ethanol: In everything we do, the well-being of people and planet plays a pivotal role – that also includes our employees!
As part of our dynamic, intercultural team of over 25 commercial, logistic, and financial experts, you will be at the forefront of the ethanol trading industry, contributing to Nedstar’s success in over 50 markets worldwide. We foster an environment where your personal growth aligns with our company's development and encourage our employees to go the extra mile not only for our customers, but also for themselves.
At Nedstar, a leading global supplier in the commodities market, we're on the lookout for a proficient Marketing Manager. This role demands an ability to seamlessly weave strategy into every marketing initiative, ensuring our narratives resonate compellingly across global markets. Are you enthusiastic about leading dynamic marketing campaigns, leveraging impactful content and varied creative formats tailored for international audiences? We seek a marketing professional with 3 to 5 years of experience as a marketing manager, someone adept at amplifying brands, creating demand, capturing it, and creating measurable outcomes.
Over the past 1.5 years, we've significantly expanded our marketing presence, with a specific emphasis on content-driven initiatives. This journey has seen the launch of a dynamic website, compelling blogs, insightful videos, and vibrant social media activity. Alongside our content efforts, we have actively engaged in performance marketing and advertising, primarily through Google and LinkedIn Ads, to bolster our market standing. Despite these advancements, there remains a substantial room for further innovation and enhancement. We see this role as essential in harnessing and realising that potential. While the overarching objectives are clear, you will have the unique opportunity to carve out your own role within these parameters.
You'll play a pivotal role in nurturing our young marketing and communication team, helping them carve out their unique strengths. Beyond just leadership, we envision the Marketing Manager as a co-working foreman, being hands-on and working alongside the team, not just directing from a distance. With expertise in project-based management, you'll support the team in efficient sprint-running and task management, ensuring everyone stays on track. Your collaborative spirit will be key in bringing different perspectives together, but we also value someone who can decisively make a call when it’s crunch time.
Your educational background, ideally from an WO institution in marketing, media, or communication, serves as a solid foundation. You have a clear vision in your field that inspires and excites your colleagues. You're familiar with both traditional and digital marketing channels and stay updated with the latest societal trends. With some team leadership experience, you're adept at guiding diverse groups. While prior knowledge in trading or commodities is a plus, we're especially keen on your genuine enthusiasm for our markets.
You are commercially minded and can stand your ground in a complex organisation. Communication skills in English are a must in our company. If you can add French, German, Spanish, or Portuguese to the mix, it’s fantastic. Dutch? That’s a welcome bonus.
