News Brief Creator/Writer (Global)

Zagreb, Croatia

Do you love aviation and writing? We may just have a job for you! :)

Read more about us below:

ch-aviation is a Swiss company that provides accurate data and news on the airline industry. Our News team currently has four team members that work from various locations (Cyprus, Austria, Lithuania, and South Africa).

We are constantly growing and this time we are looking for someone who will help us with our curated content news productIn other words, your task will be to read through articles that have been sourced from around the world, in various languages, and create a brief summary (a maximum of 150-200 words) of each. This will be done in English and using ch-aviation content criteria. 

In order to do so, you have to be a native English speaker with civil aviation industry knowledge. As the product is still in its infancy, the role will initially require about three hours per day, from Monday to Friday, or about 15 hours per week.

You are the person we are looking for if:

  • You have a mother-tongue standard of the English language, both oral and written
  • You have a perspicacious mind coupled with the ability to succinctly summarise the main points of an article, all within a limited amount of time and writing space
  • You have previous content aggregation and writing experience, which will allow you to read through texts of various lengths and languages, in some cases using Google Translate, to give a brief yet insightful summary of an article's content
  • You love outside-the-box creative thinking, which is required considering the content and countries we cover
  • Given that the position is remotely-based, you must be capable of working independently and flexibly depending on workloads, which vary from day to day
  • You have a disciplined, structured mindset that allows you to work under a supervising editor and within established guidelines and set timeframes
  • You have a strong awareness of geography and global geopolitical events
  • You have a decent understanding/knowledge of the civil aviation industry, given that the tasks will dwell entirely on this sector, i.e., some knowledge of aircraft types, existing airlines, etc.
  • You have experience writing about civil aviation
  • You have excellent verbal and written communication skills, as well as strong attention to detail
  • You are able to keep data and information confidential
  • You have strong computer skills in general, as well as Google search skills
  • You have previous experience with Microsoft Office suite (Word, Outlook)

And it would be great if:

  • You have previous experience working in a multi-cultural, multi-national environment
  • You have knowledge of Boolean search terms
  • You know Russian, Arabic, Farsi, Japanese, Mandarin, or Cantonese, and/or you have experience with language translation tools
  • You have knowledge/experience in the airline industry 

And what’s in it for you?

  • Lots of internal training and courses
  • Growth opportunity
  • Being part of an international company while working from your hometown
  • Flexible working hours

The position is fully remotely-based on a long-term contractor basis. This role does not require any travel save for bi-annual company and team meet-ups

Application process:

  • If you think you might be a perfect match for our company and the advertised position, fill out your profile.
  • Make sure you:
    • Upload your CV in English
    • Submit your cover letter (motivational letter) in English - we really read your cover letters so make sure you take some time to explain your motivation to us
    • Submit a list of references and examples of previous work

Please note that only Applications in the English language will be evaluated, as an international team is running the recruitment process. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted. All applications will be considered under the terms and conditions of confidentiality in accordance with the regulations of personal data protection.
