We need feature and news writers to join the Fintan O’Toole team. We are expanding our scope of services and we need an extra couple of hands and brilliant minds to give us a hand.
Who we are looking for
We are looking for writers that have at least two years’ experience writing for a magazine or news publication, either online or offline. The writers we are looking for must be native English speakers who are capable of noting down sources accordingly.
In addition to writing skills, applicants must all be adept in news research and evaluation. We have a wide array of methods when searching for information we need to complete every piece of content or article.
Finally, we need someone who has basic knowledge and skills in utilizing Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
Interested applicants can start submitting their application on March 15, 2020, and the deadline for submission is April 15, 2020. Each application shall be submitted through email. We will not entertain submission through text messages and online messages on our social media platforms.
Each application must consist of a resume and a professional portfolio with at least 5 to 7 sample works. It will take us 3 business days to evaluate each application.
For those to be endorsed for the next step of their application, there will be a practice exam to be passed. The exam will focus on feature writing with applicants tasked to create a 1000-word feature article about a particular topic.
We are still finalizing the topic to be written about and we will be posting it on all of our online platforms soon. If you are subscribed to our online magazine, then you will receive a notification the second the topic is released, so, make sure to subscribe.
Once you make it through the exam, you will then be qualified for the final interview with our founder Sam Lawson and marketing manager. We are looking for a total of 5 writers to join the team.
