Defence Communication Manager, Germany


Scaling the Systematic communication efforts in Central Europe
As our new Communication Manager for Systematic Defence, you will join a team of 5 talented colleagues whose purpose is to promote Systematic as the thought leader and key supplier of Command-and-Control software to an international defence audience across Systematic’s communication platforms. Besides being a vital part of the Defence MarCom team, you will also work closely with Group MarCom, consisting of 25+ colleagues who, on a daily basis, create awareness about Systematic and our high-quality products that simplify critical decision-making across public and private sectors. 


The Defence MarCom team works internationally across our 11 locations and currently has colleagues in Aarhus, DK and Farnborough, UK, with the referring manager located in Denmark. We are now looking for an additional colleague in Cologne, DE, to join the marketing department and support our local team in Cologne with creating German content. 


A broad communication role, with Defence at its core!
As Communication Manager, you will work with a variety of communication tasks ranging from press releases, thought leadership pieces, news and case stories, product launches, photo and video shoots, marketing campaigns, and events – all in relation to our Defence business. You will have a broad interface across the organisation and be responsible for finding, creating, and sharing great stories from the world of Defence in close collaboration with product management, business development, and Systematic Group. In an exciting and growing organisation, your daily tasks will involve:


  • Creating content for external media networks and Systematic channels
  • Engaging with internal and external sources and stakeholders to find the next great story about Systematic and promote Systematic as a thought leader and key supplier of C4ISR-software
  • Positioning Systematic and our SitaWare suite in Central Europe
  • Transforming relevant international defence stories into German content
  • Driving the communication efforts around tradeshows and events in cooperation with our international offices and managers
  • Supporting the development of Systematic’s overall communication strategy for the defence business with a focus on Central Europe


You speak “defence” and can write for a specialised audience 
Our new colleague has an educational background in journalism or communication and 6+ years of relevant experience to and within the defence domain – perhaps you have served in the defence forces and since then transitioned to work in the defence industry. You are experienced in and thrive in developing content for a wide range of formats. In addition you: 


  • Are an independent worker that can drive projects from start to finish
  • Are fluent in German and English, and you thrive in an international working environment 
  • Have excellent stakeholder management skills and can navigate across all levels of an organisation
