Red Bull

Junior Marketeer

As Junior Marketer at Red Bull I was able to gain experience in the FMCG sector in an international environment. My main responsibility was the national coordination of the Student Brand Management program. This included developing the business plan and setting up the different KPI’s. To reach these targets I was responsible for recruiting and coaching candidates, analyzing and monitoring the outcome to reach the targets. I reported these results to Red Bull International.

Additionally to this I served an assisting role for the communication manager and cultural manager which included event management, management of the website and social media, sponsorship, sales support,..

During my bachelor degree Business Management, Marketing, I was able to do an internship at the event company Fast Forward Events in Ghent. This office is a reputable event office with clients such as VMMa, O’Neill, Samsung and Studio Brussel. This impressive portfolio triggered me to apply for an internship at FFWD events. During this internship I was able to improve my organisational and communication skills.
