Working for De Issuemakers

De Issuemakers is the ultimate communications consultancy that advises organisations who have or wish to have a social impact, using issues that have the attention of both society and politics as a foundation. For our diverse range of clients, we seek to view these issues not as threats, but as opportunities.

2018 marks the ten-year anniversary of our agency. In order to continue growing in the future, De Issuemakers is looking for one or more communications talents to strengthen its team.

New colleagues will contribute to the design and execution of creative but realistic plans and advice. They will assist in developing campaigns that touch people and can create social change.

Our advisors are deeply curious about what is going on in society and politics. Our staff are socially driven, have high professional and intellectual ability, and are not afraid to think outside the existing boxes.
