Media Relations Advisor

Media Relations Advisor, External Communications
Do you like finding, writing and developing good stories and communicating them in clear and compelling ways across various platforms, countries and media? Are you a skilled writer with experience in social media communication? Are you a creative and curious digital native?

Your challenges
In joining our External Communications team, which is part of the Global External Communications & Sustainability organisation, you will report to the Director of Global Media Relations, Stine Green Paulsen and have a unique opportunity to work in a dynamic, international organisation committed to creating healthy living environments and sustainable solutions for the future.

As a Media Relations Advisor, you will have a strong focus on external stakeholder relations and will be in daily contact with the media and agencies. You will handle reactive requests, develop proactive stories and pitch them to the media while co-ordinating and facilitating the roll-out of the story.

Your primary tasks will be to:

  • Write, edit, pitch and publish press releases, stories, articles, social media posts and news.

  • Adapt stories to social media channels, like Twitter and LinkedIn.

  • Develop content for social media channels – primarily Twitter and LinkedIn.

  • Support colleagues in regional hubs and other VELUX spokespeople with training and advisory.

  • Perform media training of internal stakeholders.

  • Handle issues management and create preparedness plans.  

  • Drive and execute communication plans and strategies for various projects.

  • Create messaging and Q&As.


You will be based at the Head Office in Hørsholm and be part of a global organisation, so some travelling can be expected.


Your qualifications
You are a highly skilled writer in English with an eye for good stories. You have experience from working in an international company and in building relations across organisations.  

Moreover, we expect that you:

  • Have a relevant education within journalism, communications or similar.

  • Are structured and skilled at planning, creating, and editing external communication material.

  • Are experienced with social media – particularly Twitter, LinkedIn and international media.

  • Have experience in communicating about climate change and sustainability (an advantage but not a requirement).

  • Have excellent skills in written and spoken English and Danish.

As a person, you are driven by your desire and curiosity to understand our business, and to explore different ways and formats for delivering engaging and clear communication to the external media. You are proactive and self-motivated, with a clear sense of responsibility for the integrity and quality of your work.

Additionally, you thrive with change and you are able to perform under pressure and to prioritise and calmly handle tasks with conflicting deadlines. You have excellent interpersonal skills, communicate effectively with stakeholders across multiple levels and are inherently collaborative by nature.

Your opportunities
You will work alongside experienced and passionate colleagues – in a setting where knowledge is shared, and responsibility for tasks is given to those who can and will handle them professionally. We value a good workplace relationship in our small team of 8 people and our team is characterised by an informal tone and respect for each other, both as team players and as individuals.

We are a strong value-based company where commitment, thoroughness and mutual respect are among the core values and teamwork and professionalism are essential to the way we work.
