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. At least, that is what many of you have told us.
We have significant development plans for 2020 and in order to support that growth we seek a small number of specialist writers 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 your 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 of important interest to French international property buyers, both non-residents and residents, eg French taxation, health, travel, business, insurances, banking, driving, finance, education, consumer affairs, renting and letting property, buying and selling of property, etc. Whatever your specialist interest, if it is about France and likely to be of general interest, we would be interested to hear from you.
Ideally you will be living in France, to be able to feel the pulse of the country, but as the positions are remote avid Francophiles 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 in the form of letter of 150 to 250 words (no CVs required) to David Yeates: firstname.lastname@example.org.
