More about the job
Social Media Marketer
We are looking for an experienced Social Media Marketer to pioneer our social media content. ACT wants to engage with the world on the unique value and market opportunity of environmental commodities, especially against the backdrop of global climate action.
Prior to this vacancy, we have never had an in-house social media marketer or specialist to bring our knowledge and stories to life in a way that sounds like us. We see enormous potential in the digital marketing space for ACT to make an impact.
If you are a driven social media specialist and community builder, have a strong interest in turning human stories of colleagues and clients into meaningful content marketing, and are looking for a truly unique challenge, then we believe this role is for you.
Who we are
ACT is the world’s leading provider of market-based sustainability solutions. As enablers of the global energy transition, we help organizations hit their climate targets, no matter how ambitious. Since founding in 2009, we have become a trusted brand in high-impact climate projects, green electricity markets, renewable energies and energy efficiency, emission allowances and carbon offsetting. We offer tailor-made solutions backed up by unparalleled market knowledge from our global offices in Amsterdam, New York City, Shanghai and Paris. In shaping environmental markets, ACT enables its partners to pursue sustainable futures and make the world #BetterTogether.
Where you come in
As our Social Media Marketer, you will be part of the global marketing team based in our Amsterdam headquarters. You will be responsible for supporting the brand, expanding awareness and heightening our storytelling capabilities. In this role, you will deliver engaging brand content and social media campaigns, source core business and recruitment stories and transform them into meaningful marketing content, work towards building an online community across channels, create digital advertising content and campaigns and analyze and report on the results.
As a member of a marketing team that serves local and global audiences, you will bring drive and passion for social media and the communities impacted. You understand the strategic and practical side of social channels, and have a knack for adopting the specific voice of a brand to actively engage with followers. As the market is constantly changing – it is directly affected by climate change and related regulations and practices – you will also commit to being up to date on the latest developments and trends.
You will be ACT’s first in-house Social Media Marketer, so you will have the distinct chance to make a real impact and tell our story.
- Help develop and lead the rollout of social media strategies as part of the Marketing team, helping us to engage with our audiences, communities and clients in a way that drives brand awareness

- Plan and publish text, image and video content on all channels
- Manage the day-to-day social media management activities, including sourcing stories and content ideas, collaborating with product marketers, copywriters and designers to bring them to life, executing campaigns and analyzing and reporting on performance
- Support team members in social media tools, channels and strategy
- Actively shape the ACT tone and apply it to user conversations across channels
- Work mainly with LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram, though we are always open to suggestions
What we are looking for
- 2-4 years of professional experience as a Social Media Marketer or in a similar role
- Experience developing social media strategies from scratch and analyzing and reporting on results
- Experience in advertising and putting budgets behind sponsored content
- Working knowledge of SEO and how to apply it in a social media context
- Experience shifting between the creative and analytical sides of marketing and branding (be able to demonstrate the logic behind your ideas)
- Fluency in English (other languages are a plus)
- Interest in environmental trends and markets
- Professional-level knowledge of social media tools and performance metrics
What we offer
You will work with an international Marketing team situated at ACT’s flagship Amsterdam office in the brand new Atrium complex in Amsterdam Zuid.

The ACT work environment is fast-paced, collaborative and friendly – we all want to see one another succeed, and we support every chance we get. It is an adage you have heard before, but we do play as hard as we work, and we work quite hard. And we celebrate every success as a collective.

Working at ACT is more than just learning the right skills and expertise. We also focus on your personal development and growth. That’s where your personal life coach comes in. Because we believe that the more you know about yourself, the more successful you will be.
Throughout ACT you feel this constant thirst for excellence that allowed us to grow quickly and successfully. Within that ever-changing and dynamic environment comes the opportunity to work on things that are already set in stone in so many other organizations. This entrepreneurial spirit you feel throughout the company. From day one I’ve been given the chance to pioneer and challenge the status quo. You really can do things differently here.
I started working at ACT because I wanted to be in a working environment that would really allow me to grow. I certainly got what I was hoping for! Ever since I joined ACT, every day has been different, my learning curve has been very steep because of it.
You learn as you go and I’ve experienced first hand that if you succeed, everybody is genuinely happy for you. Everybody is willing to work hard and make the best out of every day. We are target driven, we are ambitious but always together as a team. That means when a target is accomplished, we also celebrate each other’s success. This teamspirit keeps everybody going!
ACT is rapidly growing and evolving, offering ample opportunities to expand your knowledge and hone your skills. This has allowed me to continuously challenge myself in ways I hadn’t even foreseen. For example, within the first six months of joining ACT New York, I relocated to Amsterdam to lead a global project implementation.
This was an area I hadn’t had a great deal of experience in but management had faith in me and I had faith in the rest of the team. We all grew together through the experience. If you are willing to reach higher, do better and learn more, there really aren’t any barriers at ACT.
