About the position

We are looking for a dynamic and outstanding all-round marketing professional to join Upfield, Number 1 plant-based company in the world. The role will report directly into the Global Marketing Head/ Regional Marketing Head -AMEA. Marketing Operation Manager-AMEA /Global Marketing Manager will focus on the end-to-end mix development and deployment of our brands and innovations for the AMEA region. The individual will be based out of AMEA with travel at times to key countries.

 

So what does it take to be successful in this role?

 

  • High Bias for Action! Mount Everest high!
  • Entrepreneurial mind-set! You want to have your own company a couple of years from now! But hack, let’s do this first!
  • Proven ability to lead a multi-cultural, multi-country projects team across different time zones (a 9 to 5 mentality would not work here and need to work in Amsterdam time as well as Indonesia and Nigeria time). Previous international experience is an advantage.
  • Proven track-record of managing a total marketing budget. Every cent saved, is a cent earned.
  • You have a strong preference for working-media over non-working media.
  • Strong business acumen and organisational awareness. This means, you know what is going on around you at all times. You see BS coming from a mile away.
  • Relevant experience with managing agency relationships (creative, research, media buying) because we will not hire a dedicated team to do that for you. Sorry.
  • Strong understanding of media buying or willing to quickly learn all ins-and-outs.
  • Track record of developing and deploying EFFECTIVE communication assets across all media channels. We want to touch the hearts and minds of our consumers, and we want them to buy our products. That is where you come in. You will be our consumer advocate and marketing rock star!
  • You love competitive pressure; you think outside of the box (what box?), you would have been an Olympic Gold Medalist if you were not always working that hard on creating consumer love. Every working hour of every working day. It is what gets you up in the morning! It’s a bit silly really.
  • You are part of a TEAM. And these teams are sacred. They are built on trust and mutual respect. And you respect that!
