Senior investor relations advisors at Inktank, who will advise and personally create products for public and pre-IPO companies in Egypt and the GCC, ranging from board reports to earnings releases, strategy documents and disclosure programs. Background in investment banking, journalism or a law a significant plus, as is the ability to read (but not necessarily write) Arabic.

Creative director at Inktank, with additional duties to Enterprise, where you’ll lead the development of outstanding, visually compelling investor communications, ATL and BTL material for some of the most challenging clients in Egypt and the wider region.

We’re also in the market for IR analysts and associates, senior developers, and art directors.

Enterprise is looking for senior editorial leaders to help launch new products. You have at least five years of experience in journalism and a minimum of two of those should have been spent in an editor’s slot. Strong knowledge of Egypt and / or the GCC, a demonstrated interest in business / finance and a desire to both lead a team and personally create product are musts. Video, audio or investigative journalism experience big pluses.

Enterprise is also looking for a seasoned reporter to join our team and lead the creation of unique editorial work of interest to our readers. You’re motivated, have a demonstrated interest in business and finance, a way with people and outstanding editorial judgement. You’ll be expected to pitch stories and take assignments, develop leads into full-blown stories, and should be fluently bilingual. Audio and video skills are a plus.

What’s Inktank? We are the leading investor relations and financial communications firm in Africa and the Middle East. Our 30-plus person team of former investment bankers, commercial bankers, journalists, lawyers, developers and designers serve publicly traded and pre-IPO clients on the Egyptian Exchange and the London Stock Exchange, among other markets. We provide strategic counsel on investor and communications strategies to CEOs and c-suite officers, help CIOs and investor relations professionals make their business cases, ensure management gets its message across to both boards of directors and shareholders, and raise both corporate and executive visibility in local and global markets.

What’s Enterprise? Our team of professionals has written more than 10 mn words of analysis on Egypt since we first start publishing in September 2014, covering our nation’s financial, economic and business news. Before 6:30am CLT every weekday, key decision makers including senior government officials, investment and commercial bankers, c-suite executives, business owners, fund managers and the teams they lead trust us for actionable business intelligence about the community in which they work. Our goal is simple: In a world awash in ambiguity, we deliver insight into trend lines, not headlines, providing facts and context about their industries, their country and the global context in which they operate.
