  • Rapid turnaround of content improvement tasks when assigned content for specific proposals
  • Ability and willingness to reach out to specific content authors and contributors to clarify intended meanings and then to restructure content into highly readable, engaging and logically presented content

About You:

  • You’ll be degree qualified in business, marketing, communications, or journalism with a minimum of 3+ years’ experience

  • A passion for writing and creating content appropriate for different audiences
  • High level of competency in written English, including grammar, spelling and vocabulary
  • Ability to write succinctly and unambiguously in business language
  • Commercial acumen regarding accuracy of written details in order to minimise risk
  • Highly organised to ensure quality deliverables under time pressure
  • Willingness to be dedicated to what can be repetitive tasks that require deep concentration and often logical thinking with some writing and presentation creativity
  • Pride in own work and in keeping the repository up-to-date
