Problem Statement Summary

dit bedrijf is the world’s only not-for-profit organisation dedicated to cleaner, safer and more effective humanitarian transport in developing nations.

Our members include (international) non-governmental organisations, United Nations agencies, Red Cross/Crescent organisations, commercial fleet operators and mobility product and service suppliers. Through professional fleet management, we help our members to deliver lifesaving and life changing aid to communities in need in a sustainable way.

Although we are good in day-to-day communication with our humanitarian members and stakeholders, strategic communication is lacking. In our strategy 2023 – 2028, entitled ‘Sustainable Transport for a Better World’ we have identified strategic communication as one of the enablers to realise our growth ambition.

In 2023, we made a first step with the development of our first ever communications strategy, with four key objectives:

  3. dit bedrijf will grow its knowledge network to draw on expertise and best practice from across its membership to provide a comprehensive resource for members.
  4. dit bedrijf will use its research, knowledge and networks to contribute to and influence better fleet management policy and operating environment for its members.

In 2024, we are looking for a self-steering professional to help operationalise our communications strategy.  And that is where you come in.
