Our proud and passionate employees make all the difference!

Would you like to join the Moonen team and contribute to our success? We are looking for a sociable, representative and energetic
Marketing & Communications Manager
40 hours a week

The company
Moonen Shipyards in Den Bosch is one of the world’s leading builders of luxury motoryachts from 30 to 50 metres in length. The motoryachts built by Moonen since 1963 all share the same unique Moonen quality. Today the yard offers a broad portfolio of yachts, ranging from semi-custom designs such as the Caribbean, classic & explorer lines to fully bespoke superyachts built entirely to the wishes of the client. In addition to new builds, Moonen also carries out refits and repairs. A second facility was opened in Groot-Ammers in 2008 which includes a 60-metre hall suitable for building yachts up to around 50 metres. The facility in Den Bosch, which also accommodates the head office, is ideal for yachts up to around the 35-metre mark. Moonen Shipyards currently employs some 40 experts in a wide range of fields.

The position
As marketing & communication manager, you will be responsible for the communication strategy and its implementation within Moonen Shipyards. You will also take care of public relations for the Moonen Shipyards brand.

You will be involved in activities such as determining the communication strategy, branding, and monitoring of the corporate identity in the broadest sense of the word. You will be the contact person for external contacts, including the press. You will take care of both offline and online media. This includes compiling the Moonen Magazine, placing advertisements, coordinating photos and films for brochures, website maintenance plus all social media and web messages. Drafting/monitoring marketing & communication budgets and organising participation in international trade exhibitions and events (and attending them yourself) will also be part of your job responsibilities.

Who are we looking for?
We seek a colleague who knows how to take initiatives, is well-organised and can handle stress. You should be flexible, creative and know how to improvise. Moreover, you should be prepared to travel and stay away from home for extended periods, especially during the boat show season.

In addition, you should have a completed higher vocational education (HBO) or higher degree in communication as well as excellent knowledge of Dutch and English in speech and writing. You should also have an up-to-date understanding of effective online and offline communication tools. Experience in yacht-building or other sectors in the world of luxury goods is a bonus.
