Openings @ English-language newspaper in Syria

UG Group, Syria's largest publisher, is launching the country's only English-language newspaper and seeks to fill several editorial positions.

The Damascus-based newspaper seeks a staff writer(s), copy editor, web editor, coordinator and executive assistant. Good English skills are a must, but Arabic is not essential. Staff writers only need a "writing portfolio" while the web editor needs "HTML skills." For other positions, only 1-2 years experience is required. Pay range is $600 - $1,000 per month ("comfortable salary for Damascus," according to the ad).

"A wonderful opportunity to live in the world's oldest continuously inhabited city and learn / improve your Arabic while gaining work experience in the country's top publishing house," the ad states. "All positions will also have the opportunity to work on What's On, the country's only Events guide and magazine. "
