Corporate Communications Officer
Part of Corporate Communications (CC) strategy is to strengthen the external profile of FMO and provide content that demonstrates FMO’s impact. The external communications strategy is built on story telling across the full communications suite, ranging from (social) media relations, owned media (website, apps, annual report, fact sheets etc) to marketing collateral and events. Important part of the role of the CC officer is to be “FMO’s internal journalist”, identifying the great stories within FMO and translating these into compelling external content for a very diverse range of stakeholders and audiences.
Contribute to the development and implementation of FMO’s external storytelling campaign
Together with the Senior CC Advisor and CC Manager develop a storytelling campaign that translates FMO’s broader strategy and brings it to life.
Sourcing, writing and distributing content that supports FMO’s strategy
Coordinate and execute with your CC, strategy and front office colleagues an efficient process to source, write and distribute client stories. This includes coordination of factsheets; case studies; visuals and videos; evaluations; (social) media messages; press releases; banners; advertisements; presentations; content for the sustainability bond and embassy newsletters; annual/government funds/FIM reporting; and other promotional material.
Website and social media management
Manage the FMO website, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts. Update website documents and content, grow online share of voice by thinking strategically about compelling content. Stimulate involvement of FMO staff for increased social media activities and increase visual story telling through use of videos. This includes support of online measurement and evaluation through google analytics.
