Wanted: Digital Community Creator

Digital Community Creator?

With switchrs we translate the sustainability ambitions of companies, governments, and organizations into tangible action. We do this by offering market analysis, strategic consulting, concept- & business model design, … 

During project we often develop our own innovation tools, harvest inspiring cases & design new methodologies to create meaningful impact for our clients & society. In order to grow our impact further, and being able to support and empower more people on a wider scale, we like to kickstart DIY.switchrs.com; our own digital channel where we’ll share our tools & templates for sustainable innovation, curate inspiring cases and collect useful insights for people to start creating more impact themselves.

We’ve started this platform already on a low-key level by sharing some of our tools and creating our LOOP card deck. Seeing these tools pop-up all over the world (from universities in Paris to social innovation hubs in Pakistan) is extremely rewarding. Our next step now is to step up our game.

For this we’re looking for an all-round creative who knows how to bring the right content to the right audience, and who knows how to develop new opportunities to reach as many people as possible. Sharing knowledge, and growing & supporting our network on the one hand, but also generating new leads and business.

For this job we’re looking for someone with an interesting combination of skills both on a strategic and a hands-on level. Below are the main skills we are expecting from a digital community manager:

  • Capable of translating ideas, knowledge and innovation tools into useful online content;
  • Knowing how to reach different audiences online, and being able to set up the right communication channels;
  • A drive to push ideas further, and spotting new opportunities;
  • An entrepreneurial mindset to make those opportunities happen;
  • The maturity to develop and follow-up a communications strategy, and the skills to direct the rest of the team to support you in this strategy;

We expect you to grow and engage with our (online) community, by curating, creating, shipping and scaling up DIY.switchrs.com. As the head of everything considered marketing, communication, and online community, you’ll be the lead in steering and directing the switchrs team in translating a communications and community plan into action.
