The candidate must have demonstrable experience in finding and managing international suppliers and freelancers, as wells as experience as an expat (or expat partner), preferably in several countries.

The ideal candidate will have experience in consumer media, video and digital publications, be used to working in a stressful environment and willing to travel on occasion.
This is a full-time position in an ambitious yet informal organisation that places the emphasis on quality. Depending on performance, there is the potential for the successful candidate to be promoted to the position of Operations Manager, in charge of all print and online publications.
