Apply if you have:
• Fast fingers: Deadlines are tight; churning out news stories on time is important.
• Eye for detail: Being quick to publish won’t cut it if your facts or grammar are not in place.
• Know your nuts and bolts: We don’t need you to be a walking-talking auto glossary but with your sound research skills, you should be able to demystify complex automotive terms to the layperson.
• A nose for news: Being the first to publish requires being constantly on the hunt for breaking news. You have to be clued in to what’s happening not just in the automotive industry but in the world in general.
• Grin and bear it (and later beer it!) attitude: Weekends are off but be prepared for sudden call of duty. Besides, we are all WFH until at least the third wave ebbs.
• A modicum of fitness: This isn’t a prerequisite but you score extra points for being lean; this profession might require you to do vehicle testing and fuel runs.

Functional skills needed – Knowledge of SEO is a great bonus: Writing interesting content in the digital age is great only if it reaches the correct audience.
