We are seeking a high energy and ambitious journalist, willing to invest their time and expertise to head and build our International Bureau. The International Bureau will be responsible for outward-facing English content and will coordinate closely with reporters we hire in international markets (Seoul, Tokyo, Singapore, Sydney etc) at a later stage, as Vietcetera expands to these markets. Candidates should have a fascination for the intricacies of Vietnam's future role in the global order and must be able to write on these issues with insight for professionals, and for a global audience.


Responsibilities:

Experience in having covered these segments, as well as an understanding of these markets are musts. The ideal candidate should be able to build a team and guide fellow reporters, in addition to leading Vietcetera's news coverage with exclusive market-moving news and scoops. For instance, the person in this role will also be involved in helping plot the portal’s coverage of Vietnamese companies as they go global, and international companies as they enter the Vietnam market. Candidates who’ve demonstrated experience in crafting strategy, and have an eye for identifying important stories, and can collaborate with the team on story framing and presentation, will be preferred. This person will be a member of the leadership team at Vietcetera. She/he will report to the CEO. This role is open to those requiring work permits in Vietnam, though only for qualified candidates with proven journalism experience preferably in larger international media organizations (CNN, NYTimes, SCMP, etc). Those without media or PR experience will not be considered.

This person must speak, write, and read Native English. Fluency in other Asian languages, specifically Vietnamese, is a strong bonus.

Benefits:

  • Competitive base salary + 13th month-salary

  • Healthcare Insurance and regular check ups provided by our partners at Jio Health

  • Dynamic and active work environment

  • Catered lunch from Monday to Thursday.

  • Opportunity to build a product from the ground up that will reach tens of millions of Vietnamese, other countries in Southeast Asia, and globally
