We publish in print and online key business magazines for the region, both country based and also regional trade publications.

This is a regular job opportunity. We have 3 magazines published bi-monthly and 1 magazine published quarterly.

We need freelancers who can write articles for these magazines, ranging from 750 to 2500 words, depending on the story requirement.

You will be provided with all information and materials you need to write the article.

We need writers who can deliver the best quality of work in one or two days' time and are available to edit their work should there be revisions from the editor.

You will be paid for every finished article/project.

Previous experience writing for business magazines is an advantage.

To qualify for the position, 1) send your CV and 2) submit the two articles as required by our writing test:
