If you are a driven, passionate writer, who can easily communicate to any audience and get your message across, no matter how complex or technical the material is, then this position is for you.

We value professional experience as much academic experience. We, of course, love our candidates to have a BA/BSc / MA/MSc degree in Journalism, Marketing, Communication or another relevant field, but to us, it is just as important that you are detail-oriented, proactive, and can perform well under deadlines.
