Docters don’t ask their patients and patients don’t tell their docter , based on my own experience. Underlying reason for the docter : no idea how to handle CRF and for the patient : I don’t want to bother my docter… This unique app will help to change this unacceptable situation, providing improved perspectives for many thousands of patients worldwide who suffer from this undesirable side effect.”

Tired of Cancer BV is een jong, dynamisch bedrijf dat als missie heeft om wereldwijd zoveel mogelijk kankerpatiënten te helpen hun vermoeidheid te verminderen. Dat doen we door het aanbieden van een zelfmanagement programma via de app Untire.

Vermoeidheid bij kanker is het meest voorkomende probleem bij deze ziekte en wij hebben een unieke en schaalbare oplossing ontwikkeld. De huidige versie is in het Engels en Nederlands beschikbaar en zal komend jaar worden vertaald in het Spaans en Duits. Dat doen we o.a. op basis van Europese Subsidie (Horizon 2020 SME Phase II).

Wij werken met de beste professionals op het gebied van design, techniek, marketing en business development.

Om ons team te versterken zijn wij op zoek naar een PR Manager die verantwoordelijk is voor de PR rondom de Nederlandse versie van Untire. Een  aanpakker die ervaring heeft met het uitrollen van een bij voorkeur gezondheids-/lifestyleproduct op de Nederlandse markt.

Je zet Untire op de kaart in Nederland. Je werkt nauw samen met de marketing manager en het team. Ons team bestaat uit mensen die gewend zijn van ‘niets iets te maken’ en over grenzen heen kijken.

Wat ga je doen?

  • Mee bedenken, uitvoeren en door ontwikkelen van het PR plan voor de Nederlandse versie van Untire
  • Content voor o.a. persberichten en voorlichtingsmateriaal ontwikkelen
  • Coördineren en organiseren van de (pers)activiteiten
  • Bestaande contacten betrekken en enthousiasmeren
  • Pro-actief nieuwe contacten zoeken en betrekken
  • Allerhande ondersteunende taken op gebied van marcom en organisatie

Wat zoeken we?

  • Een optimistische enthousiasteling zonder 9-5 mentaliteit
  • HBO-WO niveau
  • 3-5 jaar relevante ervaring in de PR
  • Je bent zelfstandig, flexibel en initiatiefrijk, we zijn een startup
  • Ervaring met (kanker)patiënten en zorgprofessionals is een pré
  • Je voelt je thuis in zowel online als offline PR
  • Je bent professioneel en plezierig in het contact en bent nauwkeurig
  • Je kan makkelijk schrijven en bent een organisatietalent
  • Je spreekt en schrijft vloeiend Nederlands

Wat bieden wij?

  • Een energiek en ondernemend team, met ruimte voor eigen inbreng
  • Een kantoor in de binnenstad van Utrecht, makkelijk met OV bereikbaar
  • Een prettige, losse en zelfstandige werksfeer, met een stel ‘groot denkers’
  • Een salaris dat past bij je ervaring, kennis en kunde
  • Een arbeidsovereenkomst voor de duur van drie maanden, met  eventuele mogelijkheid tot verlenging

We zoeken per direct een nieuwe collega, dus hoe sneller je kunt beginnen hoe beter.
