We’ve got two vacancies! Join our team as PR & Media Manager or as Account Manager Partnerships & Design tours and work on awesome projects such as Dutch Design Week, What if Lab and Dutch Design Awards. Apply before 15 january!

Dutch Design Foundation

We are optimists! We believe in the problem-solving capabilities of designers and offer them opportunities, support, publicity and a platform. By showing how designers worldwide are shaping a positive future, we strengthen their position and significance far beyond the Netherlands. We do this by organising Dutch Design Week, World Design Embassies, Dutch Design Awards and What if Lab. Our organisation, Dutch Design Foundation (DDF), is a non-profit foundation with a two-member board of directors and a supervisory board.

Are you our new PR and Media Manager?

As an experienced PR & Media professional, you understand the dynamic international media landscape and develop a winning strategy to establish innovative collaborations with the most relevant media outlets for DDF. The goal of these collaborations is to generate media attention for its participating designers and partners throughout the year, but especially in the run-up to DDW.

You research and develop interesting hooks that you then pitch as stories to the national and international media. You consistently do this based on the DDW design DNA narrative and from an understanding of the annual content calendars of the relevant media outlets. To do this effectively, you work on strong and relevant entries with the media outlets throughout the year via personal relationship management. For DDF, this makes you an important link between the internal organisation and the outside world.

In the run-up to and during DDW, you are the game-changer in the field of PR & Media. You personally ensure the success of the collaborations with the most crucial media partners. In addition, you manage the organisation of the entire inbound flow of more than five hundred international press accreditations for DDW and the associated content pitches.

Or will you be our new Account Manager Partnerships & Design tours

The Account Manager Partnerships & Design tours is an enthusiastic, driven and creative personality who knows how to generate income from the professional market with appealing brand-enhancing propositions and thus helps to realise the DDF objectives. In this position, you will focus on the corporate sector. The starting point is the realisation of measurable success within the matchmaking triptych: connecting professionals with the design field, realising relevant partnerships for DDF and maintaining these valuable relationships. The Account Manager Partnerships & Design tours works in the team of the Head of Partnerships and can manage (temporary) employees and interns.
