Community & Event Manager

Do you want to be part of a diverse team that helps some of the biggest Danish organizations with the human side of change, learning and leadership?

We are looking for a Community & Event Manager to help grow, serve and maintain our network of clients and partner companies through social media activities and events.

Who are we?

Workz is a design consultancy that works with change, involvement, leadership and learning for big Danish and global organizations. Through a people-centered approach, we help our clients change in a meaningful way, learn new ways of working, become more efficient and humanly sustainable and build more positive and engaged organizational cultures.

We are a cross-disciplinary team of experienced consultants, designers, writers, facilitators and support staff. Our team of consultants have backgrounds ranging from medieval history to corporate psychology and linguistics. Our team of designers come from a variety of the best design educations.

Most of our clients are upper-level management and professionals within communication, HR, learning and strategy implementation. An important minority are third sector clients in the museum and education sectors.

We also operate through a global network of like-minded partner companies that license and use our game-based tools in their own consultancy business.

We pride ourselves on a trust-based collaboration with partners as well as clients and are looking for ways to strengthen this relationship further.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for an experienced, autonomous and creative relation builder that can help manage our community of clients and partners across digital and physical channels.

We are, at the same time, looking for help to become more present and active on social media and believe there is untapped potential in building relationships through the face-to-face events we already host throughout the year.

We are looking for a person who has the skills and experience to bring these two channels together. On social media we want you to be the "voice of Workz", communicating with our followers and answering questions. For events, you will be in charge of all participant communication from sign-up through pre-event engagement to follow-up communications.

You must be a digital native with a knack for social media and how to engage a network of professionals. We believe in the power of quality content and real engagement more than paid promotion, but we need you to know your way around advertisement on LinkedIn and other social media platforms.

You must be ready to handle both the practicalities of both face-to-face and virtual event management as well the digital aspects of participant management and activation. IF you have experience with event management platforms, that is a positive.

Furthermore, if you have additional competencies in some aspects of content production (video, graphics design, etc.) that is a bonus but not a must.

We communicate in English, and we need you to have strong oral and written language skills. You must be either a native English speaker or a level-C proficient speaker. However, as most co-workers are locals, a lot of Danish is spoken in the hallways and when socializing.

It is important for us to understand our clients and speak their language. Some experience in corporate life and communication, as an external consultant or from working inside, is a bonus as well.

We value competencies, experience and personality more than a specific education and title.

What will the work be like?

You will become part of our existing, small marketing team that, again, is part of the design-team and reports to the Head of Design and Development.

As we operate a content marketing strategy, most of the work is done in collaboration with the rest of the house. The social media content and all the events are co-developed with the consultant team and supported by the design team.

Within this collaboration, you must be able to work autonomously, drive an activity plan and keep our relationships alive.

As our work is often tied to events, we are a deadline-driven company and often busy. There is seldom far from idea to action – but we maintain a focus on both quality and well-being.

As a company, we prioritize making room for differences as well as private life outside work. We are engaged in our work, but we know that work is not everything. It is not unusual to leave early and pick up work in the evening or in other ways be flexible to make ends meet.

We care about a well-functioning social life, so we host social events like inspiration trips, Friday get-togethers and board game evenings.

If this sounds like it might be a job for you, please send us a short application, a resume and a link or reference to some of your previous work that you feel proud sharing.
