Global Opportunity Network is looking for a communications manager

We have a communication vision to mobilize thought leaders globally. Can you develop clear and engaging communication products to reach this goal? Then we need you as our new Communications Manager.

Monday Morning is the leading independent think tank in Scandinavia with Head Quarters in Copenhagen and a global outreach. Our aim is to enable key decision makers to navigate and operate in an increasingly complex global landscape. Monday Morning houses several independent departments.

At Monday Morning Global Institute we develop new knowledge to pave the way for a shift in corporate mind-set from focusing on risks to seeing opportunities. Risk has for too long dominated the business agenda. It’s time to change. We analyze the global risk landscape and demonstrate that behind every risk we can find several opportunities. We want to replace the concern instilled by risks with the confidence inspired by opportunities.

This year we launched the first ever Global Opportunity Report, and year by year we wish to develop our understanding of emerging risks and the opportunities they represent. Our ambition is that more corporate leaders will join us on this journey towards a new strategic opportunity mind-set. It will be a movement of frontrunners in the race towards a sustainable economy.

Why are we hiring?

We are currently developing our communication vision for the Global Opportunity Report and we need you to help us implement it. The ambition is to reach out to thought leaders globally and inspire them to adopt the new opportunity mind-set and use the Global Opportunity Report as a GPS for strategic decision making. Achieving this goal requires high quality communication targeting different audiences; including a continuous presence on digital platforms and the use of traditional media channels in Denmark and internationally.

The tasks:

  • Lead the implementation of the communication vision for the Global Opportunity Report.
  • Pitch content from the report to relevant media; ensure coverage in connection with launches as well as in-between events.
  • Write and/or edit content for all communication channels of the project e.g. e-newsletters, press releases, web-site updates and blogs.
  • Design, plan and execute launch events, which draw global attention to the messages of the Global Opportunity Report.
  • Maintain a dynamic web-universe and ensure a strong presence on social media.

The ideal candidate has:

  • An education in communication and a few years of professional experience. Energy and desire to create results is more important than experience.
  • A high level of written and verbal communication skills. You read and write excellent English.
  • An ability to translate analysis into engaging and clear messages targeting different audiences.
  • Experience with the development of various creative content and mediums such as webinars and info graphics.
  • Excellent networking skills. You are able to spot change-makers and find ways to engage them.
  • A digital mind-set.
  • A robust nature with the ability to work against tight deadlines. You are a self-starter with the ability to work independently.

We can offer:

  • A passionate and ambitious work environment with focus on making a difference – for business and for the world.
  • A platform for addressing true global challenges from within and internationally recognized think tank.
  • An opportunity to work with a dedicated team with strong global networks in business, academia, government and international organizations all over the world.
