Business Insider is looking for a paid fellow to join its global translation team in London.

We’re looking for a news junkie with language skills to help find stories from our foreign language and global partner sites and translate them into English. We are ideally looking for a native-level English speaker with strong skills in German. Other languages are a bonus.

This role will involve liaising with newsroom editors and working independently to identify the best content from international sites to translate for a global audience. This fellow will also highlight the best English-language content to our global editions and partners to help get our stories in front of a larger, international audience.

This fellowship is based in our London office near Old Street, and will last six months from the start date.

The ideal candidate:

  • Speaks and reads German proficiently, and has a native-level understanding of English syntax and grammar quirks
  • Is a self-starter and able to work quickly and independently
  • Has excellent research and copy editing skills
  • Has a good instinct and news judgement for what Business Insider and INSIDER readers find interesting
  • Is extremely organised and an exceptional communicator 

Knowledge of other European languages would be an advantage, as would a background in journalism.

If this sounds like your ideal job, we would love to hear from you!
