The successful candidate will be tasked with writing news stories immediately for the website and features for the monthly magazine. On-the-job training in copy writing, sub-editing, and headline writing will be available to the candidate should you require it.

  • Basic knowledge of online publishing, using a content management system, and familiarity with social media portals/websites
  • Excellent written and spoken English is essential
  • Good time-management skills and the ability to hit deadlines, while at the same time producing clean, accurate, and insightful commentary about the industry, is also crucial


The Package
