Are you looking for an all-round freelancer in marketing and communication with international work experience? Then you’ve come to the right place!

I am an experienced interim marketing communications manager with a broad background and managerial experience. Because of my background at advertising/media agencies, (international) companies and marketing departments, I know how to successfully manage projects from strategy to actual roll-out.

My strengths
I am a social person, hands on with a lot of professional knowledge. As a people manager, I know how to get the best out of others. Especially in international companies, this is often an extra challenge because of the different cultures, which suits me well. I love taking on new projects and making them successful.

See my portfolio, or check my LinkedIn profile, for an impression of what I can do.

About me


I always fulfill a temporary role within the marketing communications department of an organization. As an interim marketing manager or campaign manager for example.

Usually, I work 32 hours per week. Depending on the office location (partly) remote. The duration varies per assignment. Sometimes it is a few months, but it is also extended sometimes.

My rate is between 100 to 125 euros per hour, depending on the work and duration of the assignment.

Nice to know: 
I was also a Scrum Master so I still regularly use techniques I learned at meetings or brainstorms to keep the energy high.

Rick Klein Velthuis – Zilveren Kruis
Brand Marketeer

“I have worked with Janet for about one and a half year and in that time I got to know her as a nice colleague you can always rely on. At Zilveren Kruis we had a challenging branding project with many different stakeholders and perspectives; a sharpened brand positioning with a new visual identity and at the same time a major technical adjustment to the website.

Janet always had the overview, knew exactly what had to be done on a project and content level. She is a good sparring partner, knows how to put things into perspective and is also a pleasant personality.”

Marieke van Wandelen – Audax Groep
Hoofd Marketing en Communicatie

Professional, decisive and precise. With these characteristic features, Janet has given substance to the complex assignment we had for her. She helped us to streamline the marketing plans and offers for the various formulas into one fully elaborated whole. It is very nice that Janet has always been one step ahead of me when it comes to preparations and progress. In addition, Janet is just a very pleasant person who brings a lot of fun.

Natalie Bierman – KEGA

“During an incredibly busy period at KEGA, Janet took a lot of work off our hands and helped create structure. On coming in, Janet found it easy to connect with everyone in the team. She knows how to get things done and simply goes for it! It was really great to have Janet working alongside you during such a busy time.”

She has the skills to combine strategic insights and operational tactics, leading to the successful implementation of complex projects, whilst managing and motivating virtual teams.

Janet knows when to ask for feedback from relevant stakeholders to drive projects further and to ensure the required buy-in. She is always looking for new ways of doing things and has strong knowledge of both the offline and online channels.

Her openmindedness and optimism make it a great pleasure to work with Janet.”

Tom Collingridge – Freelance copywriter

” I’ve had the pleasure of working with Janet on various projects in recent years. She has all the things you want from an account manager: she’s intelligent, efficient, cool in a crisis and has a good sense of humour. She also has the ability to contextualize the client’s brief, and explain clearly and concisely exactly what’s needed. Account managers like Janet make life easier for a copywriter.”
