Project assistant with accent on communication

With over 250 cultivation experts, Delphy is the knowledge company for entrepreneurs in all plant sectors, in the Netherlands and worldwide. Developing knowledge and making it applicable for our clients is in our DNA and forms the basis of the organisation.

For our Projects and Innovations team, we are looking for a project officer with communication skills who is also good at organising. If you are communicatively strong, a real connector, have a heart for the agricultural sector and are also looking for a broad function, then this position is for you!

The Job

As a project officer, you will support the project leaders with a wide variety of activities, from organising meetings with farmers and growers, contributing to plans and reports, to carrying out the communication activities in European and national projects aimed at innovation in agriculture and horticulture. Many of these projects revolve around knowledge transfer. We want to bring innovations and knowledge that contribute to a more sustainable agriculture and horticulture sector as much as possible to relevant stakeholders, such as advisors and farmers.

You have some affinity with the content, but what really energises you is thinking about HOW we get this content to the target groups. With your creativity, you know how to represent the medium at least as well as the message. You maintain relationships with agricultural entrepreneurs, the business community and other relevant organisations. With your knowledge and experience of learning processes, you contribute to the strong transition we see from ‘advisor’ to ‘coach’. You will work closely with the project leaders within the team, but also with advisors of the teams and the international partners in the projects.
