In Europe, cargo is mostly transported by truck (more than 75%). This causes more than 10% of all CO2 emissions, endless traffic congestion, and serious health problems because of air pollution.

LINEAS is a company of more than 2,100 colleagues that want to change this by shifting cargo from road to rail. Because a single train replaces 50 trucks, emits 9 times less CO2, causes 8 times less air pollution, and uses 6 times less energy.

With our GREEN XPRESS NETWORK, a unique rail network in Europe, we are offering an innovative solution for companies to ‘modal shift’ their cargo out of traffic jams onto trains.

LINEAS is right now the largest private rail freight company in Europe and we plan on growing our reach even more in the coming years.

Ready to be part of this exciting team?


The Corporate & Marketing Communication Team manages all internal and external communications for Lineas. We want to engage all employees in the ambitious company strategy and its transformation to a European player. Next to this, we build the Lineas brand towards media, customers, stakeholders, and the general public. To develop our dynamic team, we are looking for a Communication Officer who is eager to make a difference!


- As Communication Officer, you end-to-end manage communication projects in close collaboration with the rest of the team, internal stakeholders and agencies.
- We are looking for a true expert who lives and breathes communication, knows how to manage projects and take responsibility, loves to learn new things, is a true problem-solver, and has a real ‘drive’ for success and impact.
- The ideal candidate has agency experience and a strategic mind-set, is completely at home in developing to-the-point communication plans in a few slides, speaks Dutch and English/French, and has a proven track record of making things happen in a smart way.


Communication strategy development: You develop to-the-point communication strategies that are both strategically smart and creative, and make them in a format (e.g. Powerpoint) that makes them fit for getting internal stakeholders on board.

End-to-end project management & integrated communication campaigns: You lead integrated communication campaigns, working well with other team members, colleagues and agencies, driving the project to success in a structured, aligned and timely fashion.

Storytelling & creative formats: You write compelling stories which are tailored to the person bringing them (e.g. our CEO) and to the target audience(s), translate them into the right format (e.g. keynote presentation, speech, social media post, video script, …), and work with the team and/or agency to get them developed.

You build communication capability with key internal stakeholders so they become better communicators (e.g. media training, presentation skills, social media skills …) driving the company to be self-communicating vs everything passing through the Communication team. You do this in a structured way, developing a framework that helps colleagues with communication requests to easily find the right training, tools, templates, process, etc.

Internal & external liaison: You are in regular contact with internal stakeholders, also connecting with our teams in the field (Belgium and neighbouring countries), to make sure communications reach them effectively and capture stories of interest to the rest of the organisation. You are also in contact with our agencies and freelancers.

Event management: You manage events, both internal and external, in collaboration with suppliers and agencies, developing creative and impactful live and digital experiences for employees or other stakeholders.


- You are a communication professional with minimum 5 years of relevant experience in similar roles and levels of responsibility (agency experience is a plus).
- You are a team player with strong interpersonal skills, result-driven mentality, eye for quality, and solid project management skills.
- You have an entrepreneurial spirit & are a self-starter: capable of dealing with a lot of ambiguity and energized by a fast-changing environment in an international context.
- You have very good knowledge of Powerpoint and other Office / digital platforms.
- You are fluent in Dutch and very good speaking and writing in English and French.


- A chance to grow and learn in a booming company where you can leave your mark
- Be part of a dynamic team which will do everything to help you be successful
- The opportunity to work independently, with flexible hours and from home
- An competitive salary with attractive fringe benefits
