We have a number of ongoing projects and work continuously to establish new projects in the area of sound.

Your tasks will include
- Keep an eye on and seek out upcoming project opportunities in sound and related technologies

- Be responsible for the start-up of new projects until they get more permanent staffing
- In addition, you will be involved in the ongoing work with the existing projects, in the work to build and nurture relationships with current and future members, as well as in the joint task of defining and delivering on the future efforts that we put into the lake for the benefit of the audio industry

- You can write project applications in both Danish and English

Danish Sound Cluster
Is the Danish cluster for the sound industry. Denmark has a leading international role within hearing aids, audio and acoustics. The industry employs more than 50.000 employees and has a turnover of DKK 70 billion. annually distributed among 700 companies. Danish Sound Cluster's main task is to strengthen innovation in the Danish sound companies. We do that, among other things by carrying out a number of activities such as webinars, physical events, project collaborations and networking. We focus on conveying knowledge from Danish universities etc. to companies and that the companies work to use each other. We are on our way to 7 employees. Formally speaking, we are an association, and our members cover +90% of the industry.
Our secretariat is located in Struer, and we also have offices in Hørsholm and Copenhagen. There is flexibility to work from home, but we give high priority to time for meetings with our members. Every morning we meet online for "check-in", coordinate the day's tasks, spar with each other and follow up on the questions that have arisen.
Transparency and a high level of information are key concepts for us to succeed together with the diverse - and often new - tasks that we must solve. You will meet a strong team with very different backgrounds who are committed to succeeding together. There is plenty of room for you to also bring your competencies into play in this team and help to make your mark on the tasks.
With presence, openness and curiosity, we work to strengthen the internal network for key players in the audio industry. Companies and knowledge institutions confirm to us that a listening and involving approach to dialogue with our stakeholders creates high value - and that this value is both relevant and important for our own members and for the rest of the sound environment we work with.
