VitalBriefing, a global digital media company based in Luxembourg that creates curated, business-related news and other online branded content created by seasoned journalists for its clients in a wide range of industries around the world, is hiring freelance editors and proofreaders to work from home on products and services covering a range of technology, science and related subject areas and industries.
We provide clients worldwide with multiple types of content including curated news summaries for internal and external use, business intelligence, competitor monitoring reports, news and feature articles, thought leadership and other content for digital business and public sector publications, websites and social media.
Candidates should demonstrate an ability to handle and improve content in clear and concise US English, with sharp editing skills and readiness to follow style requirements that may vary according to the client.
They should also have sufficient understanding of the subject matter to be adept at commissioning articles and able to suggest subject areas. Ability to understand background material in other languages, such as French or German, is welcome.
A good understanding of technology, science and related business aspects, plus an ability to learn quickly about unfamiliar areas and topics, are key advantages. Successful candidates will learn and use our highly intuitive proprietary content management platform, as well as workflow management software.
We expect the successful candidate(s) will be based in a North American time zone, but they will at times be working with curators, writers and other colleagues based in Europe and elsewhere.
Successful candidates will be self-starters who work quickly and efficiently, and can:
- Demonstrate a background in working with technology content.
- Show judgement and ability to commission, assign and select appropriate stories.
- Combine brevity with readability and avoidance of jargon.
- Ensure every word counts both for audiences of time-pressured professionals and for more general audiences.
- Proofreaders: an eagle-eye attention to detail.
- Demonstrate reliability in meeting fixed deadlines.
Send your résumé or CV to Simon Gray, VitalBriefing’s editor-in-chief (firstname.lastname@example.org). Where relevant, include URLs for your LinkedIn profile and/or personal web site. References are also welcome.
