Writers Wanted

Thursday 03 June 2021

We are seeking to recruit freelance writers for our editorial pages.

With a range of substantial Guides to France and a monthly Newsletter, viewed over 3 million times in the past year, we are a leading provider of information and advice on French property ownership and living in France.

Our pages are widely regarded as one of the most authoritative sources of practical know-how on life in France.

We have significant development plans for 2021/22 and in order to support that growth we seek two writers/researchers for our news service and to assist in the maintenance and development of our guides.

You will need to demonstrate:

  • strong competence in the French language;
  • an ability to undertake thorough research;
  • a knowledge of and interest in a specialist topic;
  • good writing ability;
  • you are an aficionado of France.

Previous journalism experience is not required, although you will need to be able to prove to us that you can write in a succinct and interesting manner.

Specialist topics of interest to us are those we write about in our pages, but other topics of important interest to French international property buyers and owners, both non-residents and residents, would be of interest to us.

Ideally you will be living in France, to be able to feel the pulse of the country, but, as you will be working remotely, exceptional candidates living outside of France will also be considered.

The work will be available on a part-time, freelance basis, with remuneration based on commissioned work. It is likely to suit existing writers seeking supplementary income or experts a secondary activity.

Applications to David Yeates:

If you do not hear from us within 14 days of your application, you should assume you have been unsuccessful.
