(If your submission is poorly written or includes typos we will disqualify you. Sorry but this is all we will have to judge you by at first).
If you get the job you will be working for me, a crusty old English/German journalist, based in and around Africa for 25 years. I settled in Accra a couple of years ago to produce a series of investigative radio documentaries on relationships between visible and invisible worlds.
I also undertake corporate investigations and my office and home are at Hechtech House in Osu, which includes guest rooms and a function hall. You will be working with a small team that includes an investigator/administrator, housekeepers and security staff.
You must be willing to work hard otherwise let’s not waste each other’s time.
for interview write ups
We need people who can accurately write up telephone conversations about all sorts of subjects that are often technical and complex . If you are looking to improve your reporting skills, this work is good basic training. And if you get good at it you can earn some money.
But you have to be able to listen and interpret very carefully, your English language skills must already be impeccable and you must be able to format MSWord to our exact specifications. We will be editing what you do very carefully. If you rush and report incorrectly what you hear or leave out something important, we won’t be using you again any time soon. Its a matter of trust.
If you get good, you will eventually earn 100 cedis for an interview that is 20 minutes or less, or that takes up to four pages or less. If your work is poor and we have to spend a lot of time redoing it then you will earn as little as 30 cedis.
