Willam Demant
External Communication Consultant for global hearing healthcare group
Are you looking for a challenge within external communication? Can you spot a good story and shape it to be communicated to various channels and in various situations? And do you see yourself as inventive and instrumental when it comes to raising awareness of a large and complex organisation?
William Demant is a global hearing healthcare group with a vision to make a life-changing difference to people suffering from hearing loss. The Corporate Communication and Relations unit reports directly to the President and CEO and handles William Demant’s corporate internal and external communication, CSR and public relations.
We are looking for a colleague to join our team and support the work with our global communication strategy – someone who possesses finesse, has authentic ideas and a personal drive. Our mission is to build and cultivate a strong communication platform for managers to use as offset for their communication of strategy, direction and plans, to help strengthen the employees’ pride of belonging to William Demant and, especially in a Danish context, raise awareness of our group.
Scope of the job
Through developing and operating the majority of our external communication with focus on public relations, branding, social media and CSR, you will communicate our strategy, vision, mission and values in an external context.
It will be your responsibility to increase exposure of William Demant and to cultivate relations and expand networks with particularly Danish media and key journalists, while working with media and reputation monitoring on a daily basis. You will assist in building and maintaining our communication platform and work creatively and progressively with various external communication solutions as well as digital and social media channels.
  • Coordinate and manage external communication projects and support management communication; this includes creating and giving advice on communication plans.
  • Produce, edit and write content for a variety of external communication channels, e.g. website texts, press releases, feature articles, SoMe posts etc.
  • Produce content for financial and investor relations, such as articles for our annual report and stock exchange announcements.

Scope of you
Ideally, you have some years of experience within external corporate communication in either a major company or a PR agency – or both. If you also have an understanding of the hearing healthcare industry and how to work with key issues in the industry, you are a strong candidate. Experience with listed companies is also an advantage.
We want you to bring your original ideas to the organisation with a proactive and engaged mind-set. Your confidence in your skills is reflected in your deliverables, and your sharp sense of situation keeps your initiatives relevant. You have a proven record of accomplishment of project execution.
You have excellent writing and editing skills in English and Danish and a journalistic ability to source stories. You should also be familiar with PowerPoint as well as website and SoMe editing.
We expect you to hold a master’s degree or equivalent in communication, journalism or the like.
