2017 was a year of expansion for New Narrative with the launch of our New York office and three new team members in Hong Kong. And we’re continuing this growth into 2018. We are pleased to be hiring for a talented financial writer and editor to join our team. Full job details are below. Interested parties, please email a CV, cover letter and two examples of your writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Narrative, Asia’s leading financial and professional services content marketing agency, is expanding and looking for a talented financial writer and editor to join its growing team in Hong Kong.
From our offices in Hong Kong and New York, New Narrative delivers compelling content to the world’s leading banks, asset managers, law firms, fintech companies, consultants and others. Our clients rely on our unwavering dedication to editorial quality and our deep understanding of their businesses–and what resonates with their target audiences–to help them publish world-class research and thought leadership.
New Narrative’s management team has decades of experience in senior editorial roles in leading international media organisations, reporting on major events and producing commentary and analysis for an audience of senior decision-makers in the financial and professional services sectors.
Role: Editor, Financial Services
The company is looking for a dynamic and ambitious writer and editor to create content across a range of media for discerning and demanding clients. The role calls for a motivated and confident writer and editor with experience of covering financial markets, and the ambition to show what they can do at a young and fast-growing company in a new and rapidly evolving industry.
As Editor you will be responsible for producing content on a range of topics, in a range of formats, and to a range of deadlines. One week you might be writing a blog series on blockchain; the next you could be crafting tweets live from an asset management seminar in Shanghai; the next setting down to write the agenda for an event on the economics of the Belt & Road Initiative. The appeal of the job lies in its constant variety: no two client briefs are alike!
Skills and Experience Required
The successful candidate should have:
— A minimum of three years’ experience in an editorial role at a major publishing business
— Experience producing high-quality content across a range of formats, including long- and short-form written content, infographics, video and other digital formats (NB: we are looking for editorial quality; graphic design and video production skills are not required)
— Experience writing about the financial and professional services sectors for audiences of senior executives (samples of both unedited and published work will be required)
— Knowledge of the traditional, new and social media communications strategies of financial and professional services firms
— Impeccable written English skills and a commitment to editorial quality in everything you do, from text messages to tweets to treatises
— A network of contacts among marketing and communications decision-makers in these industries would be a distinct advantage
— The right to work in Hong Kong
— The willingness to travel overseas for work
The role offers a generous base salary, based on experience.
Other benefits include medical insurance, paid holidays and a company mobile phone.
