Oxford Business Group is hiring freelance writers for Economic Updates

Oxford Business Group is hiring freelance writers based in Berlin to research and write economic updates (EUs) for the OBG website.

OBG produces around 34 EUs a month. These are relatively short pieces – usually about 750-800 words – that analyse recent events in a particular economic sector of a given country or market.

Writing EUs also includes liaising with in-country field teams and OBG’s web editor to select a topic; sending an outline/plan to the web editor when required; integrating quotes and material gathered by the field team into the piece; conducting online research to add content and value.

Fluency in English and strong reading and writing skills are required. Experience in economics, banking and financial journalism is helpful. Foreign language skills in French and/or Spanish are a plus. Pay per article is 85 GBP.

Interested candidates should send a CV, writing samples and an EU pitch to
