Next Nature Network (NNN) is op zoek naar een stagiair marketing-communicatie (HBO-WO) voor de periode februari-juni 2015.

Intro

In deze periode zal dit Award Winning Design & Thinklab een campagne starten om een compleet nieuwe soort ‘natuurbeweging’ te lanceren die de relatie tussen mensen, technologie en natuur onder de loep neemt, en daar inspirerende nieuwe producten en visualisaties omheen bedenkt. Deze campagne richt zich in eerste instantie op een Nederlands publiek, en zal zo spoedig mogelijk ook internationaal gelanceerd worden. Voor de Nederlandse lancering zijn we op zoek naar een stagiair marketingcommunicatie die meehelpt om de campagne tot een groot succes te maken.

Achtergrond

Op dit moment brengt NNN vooral Engelstalige producten en media uit (websites, boeken, DVD’s, products, magazines, software, etc) en organizeren we verschillende evenmenten in binnen- en buitenland (Powershow en Nano Supermarket).

Next Nature Network is gevestigd in Amsterdam. We werken vooral met freelance ontwerpers, kunstenaars en wetenschappers waarvan meestal de helft afkomstig is uit het buitenland. Afgelopen oktober won NNN de Dutch Design Award voor onderzoek met het Kweekvlees-boek.

- Inrichten van ledenmodel, en daaraan gekoppelde communicatie met de leden-achterban (beheren van website, nieuwsbrief, social media)
- Beheren van alle inkomende pr- en promotie-aanvragen
- Onderhouden van perscontacten, organiseren van (pers)presentaties en schrijven van persberichten

De werkzaamheden zijn afwisselend en er is veel ruimte voor eigen creativiteit en inbreng.
