External Communication Manager

to Corporate Communications at Headquarters in Gothenburg

This is an exciting time to be part of Corporate Communications at Mölnlycke Health Care. We need to create global awareness of our identity, who we are and what we stand for and we want you to do it. Its a challenging task, but youll have full support from your four colleagues in the Corporate Communications group (Corporate Communications Director, Internal Communications Manager, Online Marketing Specialist and Project and Events Manager).

Youll be working in a small team with big ambitions. That means youll be expected to think strategically and long-term, but you will also need to get very hands-on from time to time. Youll be no stranger to copy writing and youre eager to think big, creatively and out of the box.

Web channels will be the most important tools for getting our message out, so its important that you are passionate and knowledgeable about web, video and social communication. The Online Marketing Specialist will of course be a great support to you.

Your speaking partners will of course be your colleagues in the Corporate Communications group, but you will also get the opportunity to work with top management, our business areas, and HR on a global basis.
