Business journalist or research analyst wanted
We’re looking for a journalist with serious analytical skills — or an analyst with the soul of a journalist — for Enterprise. You will work on new regional editions of Enterprise as well as the current Egypt-focused products. You will also be expected to get in on the ground floor of other new products including audio, deep analytical and reported pieces covering issues not yet in the nation’s headlines, and industry-specific verticals.
We are looking for candidates who are available full-time in Egypt.
Our preference is for business journalists, investment banking / PE / research analysts, or fresh grads with the same skills. At a minimum: Whatever your level of experience, you should be a fantastic writer with strong analytical skills — and not be afraid of business, economics and — to a lesser extent — politics.
The ideal candidate for us is a native-speaker-level writer of English. The ability to read Arabic is a significant plus.
Although we have a preference for Egyptian nationals, foreign candidates with a demonstrated interest in the GCC and Egypt are encouraged to apply.
This position involves a measure of shift work and is ideal for someone who is a motivated self-starter.
To apply, please submit 2-3 writing samples and a solid cover letter telling us a bit about who you are, why you’re a good fit and what interests you in Enterprise (online at www.enterprise.press). A CV is nice, but we’re much more interested in your cover letter and clips.
Please direct your applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
