Strategic leadership and Accountability: You are in charge of leading corporate communication projects in France and Benelux, working closely with the Europe and global network. An excellent understanding of business, the organization and the function is essential.
Agility: This role requires considerable agility and flexibility because of the number of projects to be managed simultaneously and by the fact that it is very dependent on current events and events that can happen from outside, in particular issues and crises.
