2 Freelance Photographers – (Guyana)

2 Freelance News Reporters – (Guyana)

2 Freelance feature writers – (Guyana)

1 Junior News Editor – (Guyana)

Job description and requirements:

Freelance photographers: – This individual will be required to submit original newsworthy photographs or original photographs to support crucial news stories, and must be proactive enough to recognize newsworthy items. Additionally, they must be able to write a summary or brief notation to explain the story behind a photograph, whenever necessary.

Qualifications: – As long as you have a high powered camera or phone with great quality pixels, along with 3 subjects CXC at grades 1 and 2, and is willing to hunt great picture stories wherever they may be, then we would be happy to employ you.

Freelance news reporters/ feature writers: – This individual should be someone with an avid interest in the news, social issues, news appealing events, short story writing, or social activism, and who loves to put their observations, thoughts, and the stories of others, into great newspaper articles.

Qualifications: – While a College Degree is advantageous, applicants with 5 subjects CXC at grades 1 and 2 will be considered for most freelancing writing positions.

Junior News Editor: – This position requires an individual who has a great knack for international journalism, and who has the ability to bring life to any piece of writing that is sloppy and lacking. You should be someone who can write an original story from scratch and make it print ready in less than 20 minutes.

You must be a candidate that doesn’t follow the line of a press release, but instead, go after the real element of the story, and be able to uncover the real facts behind the curtain.

You must be great at reworking stories, and have an avid interest in global and local news, social issues, news appealing events, short story writing, and love to put your observations, thoughts, and the stories of others, into great newspaper articles.

Qualifications: – First of all, at the Guyana Guardian we love people who are untamed, and unused by the local media fraternity, and who is largely unheard of, because raw talent shifts the news better to its modern realm, than an old tiger who may already be worn out by it.

Therefore, we don’t expect you to have any prior experience in this field. After all, previously serving as an Editor or a senior staff at a local news publication does not impress us anymore.

As long as you have a high GPA university degree, is great at telling stories, have impeccable grammar skills, can quickly put some else’s writing into the correct context, and can pass a rigorous writing test from us, then we would love to hear from you.

To apply: Please send your CV along with a cover letter via email, explaining why you are the ideal person for the desired job, to: editor@guyanaguardian.com
