Imagine spending your working days in a company that breathes creativity. One that goes above and beyond to bring to life the artistic ideas of event & entertainment professionals worldwide. A company that is part of an international group, but still feels like a family. Oh, and did we mention you'll be based in the coolest department of them all? Welcome to ShowTex Marketing!
LET US INTRODUCE OURSELVES
Do you know those drapes that define a theatre? Or the scenic fabrics that create a mood on stage? That's exactly what we do. Event decoration, trade show displays, fabric reveal systems…? Yup, that too.
As a worldwide leader in inventing, producing and installing highly innovative, flame-retardant textiles and suspension systems, we gladly spend our days tackling the most creative challenges in set building, stage and stand design. You can find ShowTex offices in Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, Asia and Australia, but your home base, which is our head office, is located in Burcht, near Antwerp (Belgium).
HOW ABOUT YOU? ARE YOU OUR KICK-ASS MARKETING ASSISTANT?
A passion for marketing and technology? Check! You surely know how to boost ShowTex' digital playfield and you master all the graphic software to do this. After all, you love to make a great idea your own and roll it out from A to Z. Social media skills? Double check! Working and analysing the various social media platforms is what makes you tick and what you don't know, you just look up, right?
But there is more: as a member of the marketing team, you feel confident juggling different tasks at the same time. That's why you are such a great organiser. Your tagline "Let’s kick some ass" is exactly the mindset we are looking for, so when do we meet?
NOW HERE'S YOUR DREAM JOB
As a creative tornado, you are the point of contact for the entire marketing team, supporting them in many different areas. Our graphic designers, video content creator, copywriter and marketing manager are so eager to meet you!
Obviously, we don't need to explain to you which Adobe tool to use for which medium, as you get creative both with online and offline artwork. E-mail banners, mailings, visuals for social media, but also advertisements, manuals, brochures, ... You understand how to create a fresh design that perfectly fits within an existing corporate identity. Did you say you love snapping pictures as well? Even better!
Typos and passive writing? Not on your watch. As a born storyteller, you whip up creative texts in no time, taking into account the laws of SEO along the way.
This is your favourite territory. Browsing the various platforms daily, you stay on top of things and are constantly on the lookout for new trends in B2B social media. Brainstorming gets you going! Because you are part of the creative think tank behind all our online campaigns.
Slightly geeky? Join the club! Because even the technical side of the job shouldn't scare you. Using a CMS you upload the content you created and make sure the ShowTex website is up to date at all times. You don't go running from a little bit of HTML or CSS either? Even better!
TRADE SHOWS & EVENTS
As an international company, ShowTex participates in quite some exhibitions and you happen to be the perfect person to help us with that. Organising is your thing, right? Great! Because there are also some customer events and staff parties to go wild on.
CURIOUS HOW WE SEE YOU?
TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE
Thanks to your copywriting skills and radar for great content, you speak and write both Dutch and English flawlessly. But maybe there are some other languages you can surprise us with?
You worked in a similar position for a couple of years since graduating from marketing or communication studies, but now is the time for a brand-new challenge. Familiar with our industry? Extra points for you!
PERSONALITY AND SKILLS
You breathe creativity and juggle daily with social media platforms, MS Office, Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, Acrobat, CMS tools AND Google. Because if something doesn't work, you just turn to the web to find the solution. Can-do attitude for the win!
How to blow us away completely? The magic words are photography, video editing and marketing automation.
A go-getter like you clearly is not startled by short deadlines and a diverse mix of tasks. Being focused and regularly questioning yourself keeps your work structured and punctual, even in stressful situations. You just get the job done, but obviously, keep communicating with the team as you go.
Still a spare moment? Surely, you’ll surprise us with your refreshing ideas!
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
ShowTex is not just an ordinary company. The word "impossible" does not exist around here, meaning we will always team up to find the best solution and just act on it. This mindset allowed us to stay at the top of a very specific industry for over 35 years already.
And what about you? You can help to shape this unique marketing story and become part of a 4-person marketing team, that daily makes ShowTex the benchmark in the sector.
But there's more:
- Flexibility & a healthy work/life balance
- Plenty of room for personal growth
- Training opportunities
- A fixed monthly salary with attractive extras
