First of all: I will not accept any bids from people who are NOT living in the countries as mentioned in the project description, as it is a rock solid requirement that people are residents in the mentioned countries. EVERY BIDDER who will be from OUTSIDE the mentioned countries will be reported as a spammer, without further notice, as I don't have time to waste on people who cannot read, or do not respect my project description. SO PLEASE MAKE SURE TO READ THE PROJECT DESCRIPTION PROPERLY AND THAT YOU MEET THE REQUIREMENTS BEFORE YOU PLACE YOUR BID.
As this is a featured project, it is allowed to exchange contact information with all bidders. However, this will also mean that you really have to communicate with me in the indicated ways. As communication is essential for this project, and the remuneration is very generous, we only want to have people who are 100% dedicated and motivated for this project. For every country we will select only ONE provider, and that will be only the BEST.
Ok, then now about the project:
A major Scandinavian dating site is looking to expand its activities world wide. This will be achieved in phases. We are now ready to start phase one. To achieve this we are looking for people who want to take on the task of country managers.
As we are not looking for a bargain, but want to have absolutely enthusiastic an super motivated people, everybody will get paid the same amount, namely US$ 2,500.00 per person.
For this amount, it can be understood that our requirements are also pretty strict, but we are convinced that this will only be a challenge to the people who are really willing to do this.
For the first phase we are looking for country managers for the following countries:
- Belgium (Flemish with knowledge of French, ask me for more info)
What do we offer:
The successful candidates will be invited to come to Thailand for a period of approximately 11 days in the month May 2008, to carry out the translation of the site during a workshop that will entirely be facilitated by us. In close cooperation with our programmer and other support staff, we will make sure the site is completely up and running and working properly before the participants return to their home countries. We will cover the costs for the complete trip, and pay a real generous compensation on top of that, for everybody who completes the project successfully. The following costs are covered:
[url removed, login to view] plane tickets for the trip to Thailand (Bangkok);
[url removed, login to view] stay at a hotel of our choice (don't expect a 5-star hotel, but we will provide decent hotels);
[url removed, login to view] lunch and dinner and beverages during the day;
NOT covered are:
[url removed, login to view] costs for shopping and going out in the evening hours and/or days off;
[url removed, login to view] for stay for those people who would like to extend their stay in Thailand. However, we can help you with information, and eventually reservations, but we will not pay any of these expenses.
[url removed, login to view] other matters that are not mentioned above, unless approved by the management up front.
[url removed, login to view] the site is developed my men, and the owner wants to give a more “feminine touch” to the site we prefer female candidates between 25 and 36 years of age. Only in case we would not be able to find a suitable candidate within this requirement, we can deviate from it.
[url removed, login to view] candidates shall actually be a resident of the country for which the site is meant. This is a rock solid requirement, and we will not consider any candidate that does not fulfill this requirement (see remark in the header of this project description).
[url removed, login to view] candidates shall preferably be natives of their country, or at least be fluent in the local language.
[url removed, login to view] candidates shall be fluent in both written and oral communication in the English language. We will test this during interviews on Skype and/or Yahoo and/or MSN.
[url removed, login to view] candidates shall have excellent communication skills, and be true team players. As we all will be part of a world wide network, we should be able to act and behave ourselves accordingly.
[url removed, login to view] candidates shall be knowledgeable about the online dating market in their countries. We will require you to write a short introduction regarding this subject, which will include your (well founded) opinion about the local situation.
[url removed, login to view] candidates shall have to perform market research BEFORE the workshop in Thailand. We will provide detailed forms about the information we want, and we need to have accurate and up-to-date information about the competitors' websites.
[url removed, login to view] candidates should have the quality to make an excellent translation from the site from English into their native language. We will provide tests and have other translators check this for quality.
[url removed, login to view] candidates shall be willing to run the site after the initial set-up as “country managers”, to make sure that the we can offer the needed customer support to the members of the sites. The compensation for this will be discussed at a later date, and is not covered by this project, but should be clear before the start of the workshop.
[url removed, login to view] the workshop the candidates shall be required to work for approximately 11 days, at 8 hours per day effectively. As the exact amount of work is not yet clear, the number of days could be adapted, but should be clear around 20 February.
[url removed, login to view] candidates shall show their commitment, by advancing the costs for their ticket to Bangkok. They will be compensated for the full price of the ticket after successful completion of the workshop.
Ok, all of you, you see this is not a small thing. But we also have a lot to offer, as we really want to have the BEST. Please show me that you are the best, and see you in Thailand.
PLEASE READ THIS ALSO.
People start making bids and ask for money up front. Please be aware that we will not pay any amount up front, except for the accommodation and stay during the workshop. Both the expenses for the trip to Bangkok AND the compensation will be paid ON SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE PROJECT.
