DUBAI EDITOR (FREELANCE)
The Culture Trip is one the Internets fastest-growing media start-ups, attracting nearly 3 million monthly readers and 1 million social media followers. Operating in 15 countries around the world, and with major offices in London, NYC and Tel Aviv, we plan to expand to 30 countries in 2016 and 100 in 2017. We are passionate about bringing compelling content to every corner of the world through our global community of writers, videographers and photographers. We won UK Website of the Year Award for Arts & Culture (2014) and were named one of 25 UK Tech Companies to Watch (2013). Having just secured major funding, the company is set for explosive growth and going through a major recruitment drive for its editorial, commercial and social teams around the world. Our vision is bold: we aim to create the worlds largest media company, powered by a global community and cutting-edge technology.
We are looking to commission an outstanding writer based in Dubai to produce top-notch, original and compelling articles about Dubai, and beyond. You need to be extremely passionate about culture and lifestyle (*see below) and know how to translate that interest into brilliant content for a highly educated, local and global audience. A self-starter with an eye for excellent copy, you should stay on top of local trends and always look out for ways to improve and enrich your writing.
As part of The Culture Trips dynamically expanding hub network, you may from time to time work alongside a local Director of Culture who will be responsible for managing a number of local social media channels.
This is a freelance role, remunerated pro rata, and can be undertaken from home.
