    What you’ll do

    The Sr. Manager, APAC PR Communication role will sit within the Global MarCom team, working with a team of experts in Amsterdam and around the globe, to tell the TomTom story across external channels.

    You’ll know how to influence people – journalists, analysts, bloggers, vloggers and customers too.

    You speak Japanese fluently and may even understand Korean or Mandarin.

    Critically, you’re super-organized, willing to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in – and you’re also willing to roll with changes when you least expect them.

    • Help shape and support the execution of our corporate, brand, business unit and product communications strategy in Japan and other key APAC markets.

    • Manage key influencer (media, analysts…) relationships in Japan and other key APAC markets, working with our PR agency in Tokyo.

    • Develop external communications copy for social media, press releases, blogs, presentations material for events and webinars, etc.

    • Provide marketing and communications counselling and expertise to our senior management and colleagues in Japan & APAC.

    • Work closely with our customers, partners and suppliers in Japan to raise awareness of TomTom and its products (e.g. develop co-branded marketing material with automakers and tier 1 suppliers).

    • Train spokespeople and manage speaker opportunities.

    • Help coordinate our PR agencies, ensuring they are delivering against KPIs.

    • Proactively identify, share and make recommendation on news and issues that TomTom should have a voice in.

    • Coordinate the attendance at influential 3rd party events/webinars and the organization of TomTom’s own local physical and virtual events.

    What we expect from you

    So, who are you? You’re a people person, a multi-tasker, and a great storyteller. You have experience working across a broad range of communications channels, and you know where and how to reach your audience most effectively. You have a global view, and a local sensitivity. You’re detail oriented and just as interested diving into big tech issues, as you are in simplifying them.

    • 8+ year’s international/regional communications experience.

    • Preference for B2B communications experience with knowledge of the automotive and software media landscapes.

    • Excellent spoken and written English. Native writing skills in Japanese.

    • Proficiency in Korean and/or Mandarin would be a plus.

    • A global view – and the cultural sensitivity that goes with it.

    • The ability to learn fast, work fast, and adapt fast, under pressure.

    • Bachelor’s degree in communications, PR or a related field preferred.
