Antwerp, Belgium

Description

As the PR Executive, you will create awareness, excitement and understanding of Dyson technology amongst the Benelux media through storytelling and direct media outreach. You will be based in Antwerp on average 3 days a week, with frequent travel to our Amsterdam office.

Market Overview

At Dyson, we never stand still. It’s the entrepreneur in us. By 2020, there will be 100 new machines, four new product portfolios and our headcount will have doubled – giving you lots to talk about. As a PR Executive, you’ll share with the media what goes on behind our research and development doors. So that everyone will be as excited about what we’re doing, as we are. 

Function Overview

Working closely with our engineers, our press teams lets the world's media know what's going on at Dyson; the technology we’re inventing, what goes on behind those secret research and development doors, where we’re expanding and what else is in store. In short, it keeps people talking about Dyson. Through traditional media, cutting-edge events, retail experiences, social media and PR, it seizes every chance to tell the Dyson story.

Accountabilities

Your task is to raise brand awareness. Acting proactively and reactively to the day’s news you’ll use your contacts within the Benelux media to get our messages across. Building strong media relations and securing positive reviews through practical demonstrations of our products will be key to our success, as will writing press releases, responding to PR requests for information and media interviews. You’ll also help manage events and provide full admin support. And, to ensure consistency, you’ll align local activity with broader global group communications. In fact, you’ll do whatever’s needed to make sure our brands get the attention they deserve. 

Skills

Ideally, you’ll have experience of writing and developing external communications within an equally large, fast-paced organisation. Your Benelux media knowledge is outstanding. And your verbal and written Dutch, English and French are impeccable. If you can add experience within technology or health and beauty, then all the better.

Benefits Overview

Dyson is different. It’s certainly not for everyone. But for those who get the Dyson way, you’ll never look back. And once you’re here, we’ll want to keep you. We keep an eye on the market to ensure you’re well rewarded for a job brilliantly done. And our culture’s something we’re proud of too. Professional development, flexible hours and a relaxed dress code are just some of the other reasons our people join, and stay. We’re confident you won’t be disappointed.
