Communication Manager at TOMRA

Do you want to contribute to a more sustainable future? TOMRA is now looking for a communications manager who will help build brand and reputation.

Like many innovative ventures, TOMRA was founded in a garage. This garage wasn’t in Palo Alto, though, it was in Vollen, Norway. 50 years later, TOMRA Collection is a world-leading technology company working to expand the circular economy. As the largest provider of reverse vending machines (“panteautomater”) on the planet, we strive to reduce society’s reliance on raw materials by enabling drink bottles, cans, and other packaging to be continually recycled in a closed loop. Every year, TOMRA Collection captures more than 40 billion drink containers across 60 global markets, ensuring that they don’t end up in our streets, oceans, or landfills. That might sound like a lot, but it’s actually less than 3% of what’s sold annually! Naturally, we’ve got our sights set on the remaining 97% and we need your help to get it. How’s that for a growth mindset? Our success is measured by our impact. If that’s a statement that resonates with you, then you’ve come to the right place.

Main tasks and responsibilities as Communication Manager

Join our Brand, Marketing and Communication team at the global headquarters in Asker to create a more sustainable future by taking an important role in building TOMRA’s brand and reputation.

That includes producing online, print and video content, and developing digital communication channels for TOMRA Collection – from social media to the corporate website and intranet.

You will be part of an international team with committed employees and that values new perspectives. Our working language is English. We work together, succeed together, and help each other during hectic periods.
