Corporate Communications Officer (Events)

Are you a multi-tasker keen to work for an organization that organizes high-quality events all over the world? Then you might be our next Corporate Communications Officer (Events)!

Corporate Communications (CC) is part of the Strategy & Corporate Affairs department of FMO.

On top of this, we organise events all over the world; on average between 60-90 events a year. Over the past 20 years, we have built a strong reputation in this particular area. Our events are well frequented, high on content and networking opportunities, and particularly the two flagship conferences we organise every other year, are industry leading.

We are looking for a young and ambitious professional to support our Senior Corporate Communications Officer. Someone who loves learning, has an eye for detail, is generally described as ‘easy to work with’, who keeps their head cool when pressure is up and who does not mind multi-tasking.
