The global cosmetics and personal care industry is a fast-paced, science-driven dynamic industry that generates billions of dollars a year, ultimately serving to enhance the health and well-being of just about everybody on the planet.
The digital B2B journal, Cosmetics Design, touches on every aspect of this industry, from raw materials and active ingredients, right through to drilling down on what makes for the most innovative products currently hitting store shelves.
Self-motivated and like a challenge?
If you like a rewarding challenge and consider yourself to be a self-motivated individual who would relish the prospect of joining our dynamic global editorial team, then we want to hear from you!
We are looking for a reporter who can spot the hottest news, ask the difficult questions and find the story behind the spin for our US-dedicated leading B2B news website, www.cosmeticsdesign.com. We also publish www.cosmeticsdesign-europe.com and www.cosmeticsdesign-asia.com, which may give rise to occasional contributions.
Job Profile :
The successful applicant would be a recent graduate with a degree in journalism and preferably have reporting experience for an online B2B publication, skills in copy writing, telephone interviews, proof-reading and an ability to meet daily publishing deadlines.
You will be able to identify relevant leads and deliver breaking news and off-diary content covering developments in formulation, technology and business for our sites, which combined as a group, gather an independently audited circulation of more than 140,000 unique monthly visitors.
To thrive in this fast-paced environment, you will have to be equally at home breaking news in text articles, videos or podcast reports or using social media.
You should have a passion for journalism and will need to be as comfortable talking to scientists and formulators as you are quizzing business strategists and CEOs. You should also be ready to tackle public speaking events, including conferences or webinars.
The person we appoint should be a strategic thinker who can contribute to the brand development of our sites while working to exacting editorial deadlines.
Although not a prerequisite, we are also interested in candidates with language skills, particularly those with fluency in Portuguese, Spanish and Mandarin.
The successful candidate will be based in our office in Midtown Manhattan, NYC, but will be expected to travel widely throughout the Americas, and on occasion further afield.
