Building our reputation and promoting our products

We have an exceptional position in our market, and we have built a great brand. Your mission is to tell the story about who we are, what we deliver and put our solutions in the spotlight to reveal the secrets behind modern living. Addressing the key benefits of our solutions and conveying their sustainable benefits is vital for ROCKWOOL’s continuous growth. As a strong communicator, you will help proactively maintain our reputation across various stakeholder groups and build trust in our communities.

Do you have sustainability and healthy food high on your professional and personal agenda, and Public Affairs is your profession? GRODAN is looking for an experienced Public Affairs Manager. Are you up for this challenging international position in an innovative and data-driven company? Apply now!

It’s time to grow a better future

Grodan was at the basis of sustainable horticulture by making it possible to grow on stone wool. Since then we further advanced this way of growing and today, we’re market leader enabling our customers to grow in the most efficient and sustainable way. While using fewer valuable resources like water, land and nutrients, growers can optimize their crops production in our stone wool substrates. Next to this we launched an open software platform which supports our customers with valuable insights into their production process.

You will be part of the Grodan Marketing department (15 professionals), HQ in Roermond and report to the Marketing Director. In this role you will closely work together with internal and external stakeholders, and you will travel internationally, around 30% of your time.

Your challenge
Grodan is looking for a senior Public Affairs Manager who can create new business opportunities using Grodan's sustainability approach and messaging. As a Public Affairs Manager, you also ensure that Grodan continues to develop and follow a clear sustainability direction according to our strategic plan. You will focus on the EU, but it is expected that new markets will be increasingly in your scope. Also, you will cooperate with the Public Affairs Manager North America.

Your main tasks include:

  • Create recognition for the most sustainable way of growing fresh, healthy food as well as the leading role that stone wool growing media have (high tech)
  • Developing and maintaining relations with stakeholders, in particular governments, retailers, NGOs and knowledge institutions
  • Building a (scientific) fact-base and designing key-messages regarding sustainability and health
  • Representing Grodan in various forums, platforms, knowledge groups and industry associations and establish coalitions
  • Systematically cooperate with area marketing for effective implementation of the TL-strategy
  • Monitor political developments regarding environment, health and food production
  • Track new developments and signal to the company in case steps need to be taken
  • Lead or support advocacy activities to support commercial growth or mitigate risks
  • Develop and maintain relations with stakeholders such as policy makers
  • Ensure Grodan can satisfy the criteria within all current and future growing media norms and standards related to environment and health; in cooperation with other departments within Grodan
  • Take care of development and updates of relevant documentation on sustainability, health and safety
  • Communicate clearly and professionally, selecting the appropriate medium for each message and use each medium effectively
  • Identify, assess and address any global issue potentially impacting upon or presenting opportunities for Grodan and discuss these with the Board
  • Translate public affairs activities to real business opportunities and align these with the internal organisation

Your profile

  • Master degree in International Business Studies or Public Affairs or equivalent knowledge gained through work experience;
  • 5+ years’ experience in Public Affairs in an international environment;
  • Strong affinity with horticulture and/or global sustainability/food issues;
  • Well-developed communication and presentation skills. Fluency in both the English and Dutch language is a must. Any additional languages are an asset;
  • Ability to translate Grodan Group strategic directions to different public stakeholders;
  • You recognise yourself in these competences: Proactive, self-motivating, strong decisiveness, diplomatic, fast and conceptual thinker, pragmatic;
  • Ideally you live in the Brussels area (Belgium) or The Hague area (The Netherlands) because of frequent PA activities. Working from home and willingness to travel (30%).

Best of both worlds!

Being part of the successful ROCKWOOL Group, we are a relatively small, hence international and dynamic company active in 70 countries. We offer you a challenging role within a professional and ambitious company with high quality innovative products, systems and services. There is plenty of room for entrepreneurship and the communication lines are short. We are proud of our friendly culture where teamwork and a down to earth attitude are common. In addition to a competitive salary and good benefits, Grodan/ROCKWOOL also offers ample opportunities to work on your personal development.
