Are you a local news junkie with a keen interest in reporting on the historic 2019 Hong Kong protests?
Are you a skilled and versatile writer, able to churn out entertaining and engaging copy on any subject with a unique voice?
Do you have, at minimum, a solid camera and basic photography skills, or better yet, full-on multimedia journalism skills?
Do you have a firm handle on the city’s social media movers and shakers, and experience digging up stories from around the social media sphere?
Are you hard-working, reliable, intelligent, and ambitious?
If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, you should apply for this contractor position at Coconuts Hong Kong.
Responsibilities will include:
Writing original news stories, as well as aggregating and sourcing stories from social media and local outlets — mainly about the Hong Kong protests, but occasionally about other topics as well.
Reporting on news events and taking photos and/or video to supplement written stories.
Knowledge of WordPress, multimedia experience, social media skills, and an extensive network of sources are a bonus. So is ownership of a smartphone.
A university degree and at least one year of journalistic experience.
Good command of spoken and written English and Cantonese. Mandarin is a plus.
This is a 3-month-long contract position that will be based remotely in Hong Kong.
Apply by sending a CV and writing samples to clarissa [AT] coconuts.co.
