Vacancy: Trailblazer ICT / internet / e-commerce (e-people)


At e-people we get asked to fill new jobs all the time. ICT, internet and / or e-commerce functions that seem to appear out of nowhere due to rapid growth, reorganisations, start-ups or otherwise. The job profile is still blank, requiring speed, vision and expert skills to fill it. Which makes these types of functions ideally suited for the seasoned self-employed professionals, interim managers or freelancers.

As a Trailblazer, we send you out into uncharted territory: it’s up to you to add shape and form to the function, literally and metaphorically – in no time. Your task is to lay a solid basis for the person who’ll take over from you on a more permanent basis. And you’ll play a big role in determining who this person will be through your involvement in the selection process.

From Project Manager to ICT Architect. From Online Marketer to Java Specialist. From Web Developer to Systems Administrator. Plus all the jobs in between – as long as they’re related to ICT, internet and / or e-commerce. And we’re privileged to be able to do this for amazing companies like Reed Business Media, Jutten Simulation and Eyefreight.

  • You know all about not having things laid out on a plate for you.
