Marketing & Communications Manager
My name is Kimberley de Jong, and I am the Marketing & Communications Manager at IEC Abroad.
I am originally from the Netherlands, and graduated from the University of Amsterdam with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Language and Culture. After taking part in the Erasmus programme during my degree, I permanently moved to Manchester and studied at the University of Manchester for a postgraduate degree in Economic and Social History. I speak English and Dutch fluently, as well as having a basic proficiency in German and French.
I have had various marketing, editorial and copywriting roles over the years; however, I soon found out that my true passion lies in international education marketing. Having been an international student myself, I love working with international students, and I enjoy making sure that everything we do is relevant and helpful for them. Coming to study in another country can be overwhelming – and I like to make sure that we can do everything to help.
My hobbies include travel, reading, and cooking.
