Marketing Manager

Ittervoort | Marketing |

Is marketing your passion and do you want to work in a international and semi-technical environment within a small passionate team? Are you creative, independent and determined? Then you are the Marketing Manager BRB is looking for!

What is the job about?

You, the Marketing Manager, will be responsible for the corporate branding and global marketing of the Lube Oil Additives and Chemicals department, LAC for short. You work together with 2 other colleagues in the marketing team. You get a lot of freedom in the position and we actually challenge you to run your marketing department as if it were your own company.

You set out the marketing strategy in alignement with the global LAC strategy. As Marketing Manager it is in your DNA to understand the market dynamics. From the market information you will generate recommendations and pricing strategies. With your hands-on mentality, you set out the lines and ensure the correct follow-up. You like to analyse data, work with marketing models and keep asking to get to the core. You actively participate in projects, where you can share ideas. We welcome you to submit projects yourself. In addition to all this, you also have the knowledge and skills to bring your team and others within the organization to a higher level. In short, a versatile function with more than enough variety. And if COVID-19 permits, you will also travel regularly to visit international conferences, for example.

In 1981, BRB started as a sole proprietorship and at the end of 2019 PETRONAS Chemicals Group Berhard (PCG) acquired BRB. In addition to action and entrepreneurship, this growth also requires a planning and process-based approach aimed at the long term and further professionalization. And since Petronas is a listed company, it is important to keep each other well informed of all marketing activities.

The team

The marketing team for Lube Oil Additives and Chemicals (LAC) consists of 3 people. The Marketing Manager, which we are now looking for, and two employees. One employee mainly focuses on communication and the other is more involved in the strategic marketing research and pricing. The department falls directly under LAC Vice President, Roger Dohmen. Get to know him on LinkedIn.

What's in it for you?

You can really help build and therefore make a big difference with small things. How nice is that! You will work in a successful department with growth potential and you will work internationally. The team is dedicated and we communicate open and honest.

The acquisition by PETRONAS offers you the best of both worlds. The advantages of a large corporate organization, but the freedom to get started with your own ideas in an entrepreneurial environment. Besides the activities, we nurture your ambition. There are plenty of projects that you can tackle both nationally and internationally.

But there's more to offer:

  • a good salary matching your knowledge and skills
  • a position for at least 32 hours per week, but 40 hours is preferred given the workload
  • payment of a possible bonus of a maximum of 2 monthly salaries

  • reimbursement of your daily travel costs, 16 cents per km with a maximum of 50 km for a single journey
  • pension scheme with only 4% personal contribution
  • company phone and laptop
  • staff outings with a little bit extra. Consider, for example, an annual company party, regular drinks and BRB treats to cake regulary for celebrating the birthdays of their employees
  • the possibility to work partially from home and to fill in your hours flexibly

What do you bring?

You have at least 5 years of experience in the field of marketing, also internationally. You follow the latest developments and you continuously look at how these fit the LAC strategy and our customers demand. You also think outside the box and come up with creative solutions.

For this role we are looking for someone who can take responsibility for the department, but who will work just as hard as the rest of the team to implement all the plans. A real team player. You stay yourself and also give others the opportunity to be and remain themselves, you have a passion for the marketing profession and you do not immediately become restless when the pressure increases. You always go for the max, but you also dare to be vulnerable.

What else do you bring:

  • hbo/wo working and thinking level
  • affinity with technology, you would like to understand how it works
  • an excellent command of the English language, spoken and written
