Senior Employee Internal Communications

About Robeco Group
Robeco, a mid-sized global asset manager, offers a mix of investment solutions within a broad range of strategies to institutional and private investors worldwide. Robeco’s head office is located in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The company has a strong presence in the US, Europe and Asia and a developing presence in key emerging markets such as India and Latin America. Robeco was founded in 1929 in the Netherlands as Rotterdamsch Beleggings Consortium. Today, Robeco is the center of asset-management expertise for ORIX Corporation, Robeco’s majority shareholder based in Tokyo, Japan. The following subsidiaries and joint ventures form part of Robeco Group: Robeco Investment Management, Corestone Investment Management, Harbor Capital Advisors, Transtrend, RobecoSAM and Canara Robeco Asset Management Company.

The term Investment Engineers expresses how Robeco regards its profession. Passion, commitment and expertise are what counts. Robeco consists of motivated professionals. Despite the company’s growth and international ambitions, Robeco has always remained true to its Rotterdam roots. The headquarters are still in Rotterdam, and the way of thinking and acting fits in perfectly with the spirit of this major port city: a no-nonsense attitude to hard work.

Department
The team (4 people: 1 manager, 3 communications specialists and 1 content manager) provides internal communication support to the entire organization.

One of the spearheads of internal communications is that employees should know where Robeco is headed (mission and strategy) and where the organization stands (in implementing strategy and achieving corporate targets). The ultimate goal is to increase staff commitment, enhance personal effectiveness and to improve Robeco’s results on this basis. Internal communication also plays a key role in helping to create a corporate culture and a way of working together that enables Robeco to be successful in implementing its strategy.

Objectives:
  • To provide clear insight into the vision, mission, strategy and core values of Robeco and its brand, so that individual employees can then translate these aspects in terms of their own role and contribution. The idea is to obtain an overall view and to understand one’s own individual contribution.
  • To create commitment and encourage active contributions to achieving the strategy.
  • To advise and support managers in taking personal responsibility for internal communications.
  • To facilitate knowledge sharing and show how effective cooperation can improve the results.
  • To ensure that the right communication instrument is used – at the right time, with the right message and for the right target group.
Job description
As part of the Internal Communications team you will:
  • proactively follow the developments within the organization and translate these in a timely fashion into internal communications (such as news items, background articles, written interviews, speeches, presentations and scripts for videos), taking account of the feelings, objectives and needs of staff (internal target groups).
  • translate the external communications and marketing strategy into internal communications (in collaboration with colleagues from Corporate Communications and Global Marketing),  ensuring that the image Robeco wishes to present externally is kept alive and thoroughly understood within the organization.
  • advise at operational and tactical board level and support line managers in their work at internal communications and write communications plans.
  • be responsible to improve ideas of internal communication and are aware of the newest technological developments.
  • use online & offline communication tools.
  • evaluate the internal communications activities and use the outcome of the results for further improvements.
  • work for a leading international asset manager with offices and specialized investment teams in Europe, Asia and the United States.
Your work location will be Rotterdam.
