We’re hiring for two part time roles: a writer for the Newshound column, and a digital marketing manager.

Location is flexible, and our budget would cover people working on a freelance contract  in Budapest or Warsaw, for example. 

We would also  consider employing someone as a fixed-term trainee in Brussels, and would take one full-time person instead of two part-time ones, if the right person wanted to do both.


How to apply

Send a CV and covering letter (motivation letter) to and indicating which position (or positions)  you would like to be considered for.

If you’re applying for the Newshound writer job, please also include a 500 word writing sample in PDF format. Take a look at the rest of the site to get used to our style.

If you’re applying for the digital marketing manager job, include a short deck (no more than five slides, PDF format) proposing how you’d grow Article7’s audience.

Article 7 provides a flexible, diverse, supportive and inclusive working environment.
