Online Business News Editor - Marketing & MediaAre you a sassy wordsmith with a nose for a good business story and at least five years' experience in journalism or online publishing?

Are you looking for a new space to explore and expand your already impressive portfolio of published works? Does the thought of breaking news, interviews with fascinating people, and big events with interesting insights on which to report get you up in the morning?

Are you comfortable managing your own time and working independently, but also play well with others?Are you up for the challenge of helping grow an already burgeoning news portal?

Oh, and do you live in Cape Town? Because we need you in Cape Town.Yes? Then we may have just the job for you...We are : - Bizcommunity, a small but high-profile independent online media house with lots of personality and even more heart.

We need someone : - With the aforementioned experience and drive- With a tertiary qualification in a related field- With exposure to and / or an avid interest in the business of Marketing, Media and Advertising.

And by that we mean someone keen to showcase the people and processes behind the flashy ads, campaigns and brand activations, among other things.

  • Who is comfortable wearing a few hats and who can handle the mundanity of subbing and uploading copy one minute, compiling interesting interviews the next, and writing some compelling stories another.
  • Who can shred promotional copy to within an inch of its life and still make it an interesting editorial story.- Who can spot a typo or fake news story from 20 paces (okay, slight exaggeration - some of us are genuinely short-sighted and wear corrective lenses - but you catch our drift).
  • Who is proactive and will turn into a diamond rather than dust under pressure.- Who witnessed the birth of social media and understands its pitfalls, but is comfortable using it as a communication platform.
  • Nice to haves : - Some experience working with a digital content management system will make onboarding so much simpler- B2B media experience and a contact list bursting with names of marketing, advertising and media professionals.

    We do have our own but the more the merrier.We offer : - Some serious one-on-one time with your PJs while you work. We only expect you to get dressed if you're going to an event or meeting.

  • An office vibe with some friendly faces and as much coffee as your over-caffeinated little heart can handle, for when you're sick of the kids and need some big people conversation.
  • But we've also seen the price of petrol so office time is currently optional.- Plenty of awesome invites to epic events and all the free flash drives PRs are willing to throw at you.

  • Working with a kickass team who are like a second family (that you actually enjoy talking to).Send us : - Your error-free CV- A brief cover letter ( words max) telling us why we should pick you.
  • Go ahead. Sell yourself.- Three samples of your amazing writing. We want you to WOW us. - Salary expectations - All this to with #ONLINEEDITOR in the email subject line.

    If you've made the cut, we'll be in contact. Unfortunately if you haven't heard from us within two weeks of applying, please consider your application unsuccessful.

    All those who have made the grade will be required to write a test based on various aspects of the position. But don't be scared.

    It's not high school math.
