Introduction to the job

Organizations of any size need good communication to function. In large and complex organizations, the importance of communication is magnified. Empowered employees need knowledge and information to do their jobs, and need to understand the big picture to make smart decisions. Leaders who understand the potential of communication to help achieve business results need the right tools, platforms and hands-on support to increase their impact. Change is constant and needs to be explained and advocated. As communications professionals at ASML, we believe we are much more than information purveyors or internal journalists. We seek to support the company in raising its communications competence, improving its communication flows, and thereby increase employee engagement and achieve better results. Will you join us?

Role and responsibilities

You will be the Internal Communications Business Partner for the Souring & Supply Chain (S&SC) organization of ASML and will work closely with the head of S&SC, a member of ASML’s Executive Committee. You will provide communications consultation and create effective communication that contributes to the success of key business-and employee engagement initiatives. The S&SC organization is growing at the same rate as ASML overall and play a crucial role in solving our output challenges so we can deliver the needed systems to the world’s top semiconductor manufacturers.

The communication role involves leading, coordinating and delivering (strategic) internal communications initiatives, and creating relevant communications content (e.g. written communication, talking points, scripts, presentations via different communication assets) for an internal global audience. You will work closely with colleagues in the Internal Communications team to ensure we have a collective impact with regard to supporting business objectives, and collaborating on main messages, communication assets and timing. You will also work with your peers across the Corporate Communications and Employer Branding Teams, to identify new opportunities for cross-functional or company-wide communications initiatives contributing to the company’s strategic goals.

  • You will also support key supplier communications initiatives when relevant.
  • You will have a seat in the extended management team of S&SC, collaboratively setting communications objectives and priorities for this sector. Measuring and reporting on the effectiveness of communications and managing your business leader’s budget / spend on communications as agreed in the annual communications plan are also part of this role.
  • You will ensure that our communications initiatives have clear objectives that are tied to business goals, allowing you to measure, evaluate and ultimately answer the question: “Did we make a difference?”

  • 8+ years of relevant experience in internal and/or corporate communications
  • Master-level education in a relevant field
  • Advanced English skills (C1 or higher)
