Marketing Communication Specialist

We are looking for a Marketing Communication Specialist!

A day in the life of the Marketing Communication Specialist at Validata.

After a short bike ride through the city, you grab a cup of coffee and take a look at the content schedule for the next two weeks. You come up with new suitable topics and engage the external copywriter to finalise the content for the coming period. You discuss with the Sales Team which clients can act as references and monitor this process.

After lunch you have a call with our online marketing agency. Together you discuss the current campaigns and determine where adjustments are needed. You make sure that the right keywords are included in our campaigns. You go through the list of prospects that have landed in our marketing automation funnel and together with the Sales Manager you determine which prospects are ‘Sales Qualified’ and can be transferred to the Sales Team.

After an enjoyable lunch with your colleagues and a short walk through the Vondelpark, you are re-energized for a few more hours of intense activity because you have an appointment with one of our commercial partners. Together you discuss how the collaboration can be stepped up and how we will organise joint activities such as events and campaigns.

Who are we?

We are Validata, an innovative software company specialised in employment screening. Every day we support our clients – from ABN AMRO to – with their challenge of hiring the right people and managing their risks.   The dynamic market we operate in is still developing rapidly and offers many opportunities, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

Validata and marketing

Marketing plays a crucial role in accelerating growth both inside and outside the Netherlands. In 2019 a (senior) marketer was employed for the first time to professionalise marketing and build the team. The team is now looking for a native English speaker who also understands Dutch.
