This is a, once in a corporate lifetime, opportunity in which you will help build something significant and valuable that will take Zanders and your marketing career to the next level. For this challenge, we are looking for a Head of Marketing & Communications with visionary leadership and healthy boldness.


Here are some very good reasons why you should join Zanders’ Marketing Team:

  • Starting a new marketing chapter at Zanders: from scratch to a new brand.
  • An exciting newly created role in a growing international company.
  • Space to shape this role while building your own team.
  • Freedom to develop a vision and a strategy.


The department has great ambitions!

You will join the beginning of the next chapter of the Zanders’ story : an exciting moment for the business in which Zanders is undergoing a strategic transformation to support the next chapter of success. We aim to build a strategic marketing function that can intelligently support the growth goals of the company.

Currently, activities are operational and tactical (marketing, events, publications) and we need to further develop the measurement of ROI. The focus needs to shift to measurable brand visibility, thought leadership positioning, and revenue generation. You will have the mission and mandate to develop and accelerate this growth and development. The aim is to reposition the Marketing department as a data-driven and insight-driven growth engine. In parallel to this, Marketing becomes a strategic advisor and business partner to the organisation.

You will be part of a team that consists of four professionals: a Marketing Manager with three direct reports and a Digital Marketing Manager will be joining the team soon.


Task and responsibilities

  • You will proactively execute Zanders' marketing and communications strategy to promote Zanders' brand and enhance our reputation.
  • You will guide and lead the marketing and communications team in achieving success by establishing a clear roadmap and monitoring progress to achieve results on time and within budget.
  • You manage the team, conduct performance reviews and encourage the professional growth of your team members and continuous process improvements.
  • You act as a sparring partner for the management, helping them to develop strategy and set priorities.
  • You will be responsible for delivering high quality and consistency across all products and services, including our publications, website, social networks, campaigns and event collaterals. You will be the last eye on your team's work before publication.
  • You will lead various complex and challenging projects such as Growth Strategy, Campaign strategy & execution and you will be driving growth in the SaaS product segment.


Skills to be successful

  • Bachelor or master degree in marketing or related field.
  • 8-10 years of proven working experience in Marketing with leadership experience, preferably in B2B or Professional Services industry.
  • Strategic mindset with overview and attention to detail, Stakeholder management, Leadership and Result driven.
  • Strong knowledge of CRM Sytems, Hubspot, Dynamics 365, GA and GSC.
  • Fluent in English, Dutch is a plus.


We offer in return

At Zanders, you will of course enjoy attractive conditions of employment: a good salary, a nice number of holidays, travel allowance and a Zanders bonus scheme. But there is more to look forward to.

We will offer you:

  • A good balance between work and free time in combination with a healthy work from home ethics and wellness policy.
  • A brand new office located next to the Central Station Utrecht and easily accessible by public transport.
  • A unique opportunity to be in a strategic function, leading a Marketing team and to stamp your mark on the business.
  • And on top of it, enthusiastic and helpful colleagues, good coffee, an annual Zanders trip to a (surprise) location in Europe and other social activities.
