Austrian Times Jobs

The Austrian Times does have on an occasional basis throughout the year vacancies for our editorial team and for special projects.

It is worthwhile sending in your CV which will be kept on file to be considered when a vacancy becomes available.

Trainees

We occasionally recruit either people with no or little journalistic ability but who have excellent English and at least one or two additional languages – with preference given to Eastern European languages. German is an advantage. Please write to us at careers@austriantimes.at and mark it trainees.

Senior writers

We also recruit experienced qualified journalists primarily with a background in the UK media for which language skills are desirable but not essential. Please write to us at careers@austriantimes.at and mark it senior writers.

Internships

At the Austrian Times we recognise that there is little opportunity for newcomers interested in the business to get valuable work experience to see if it is a career that might indeed interest them and we offer throughout the year internships working in the newsroom assisting on basic editorial tasks. We offer feedback on writing and the opportunity to see how a newsroom runs. The duration of the internships depends on the individual – the basic requirements are a genuine interest in journalism – excellent English and preferably German and if possible a third language. However only English is compulsory. Please write to us at careers@austriantimes.at and mark it internships.

Partnerships

As an international office there are many innovative projects that our international team here are often working on. From time to time with a new project we are interested in gathering together a team to take part in making that project work and then in sharing in the success. Most of these projects are unpaid partnerships where we work together with people who have the knowledge and skills in a specific field to make a new idea a success. Most projects have a typical three-month development and planning period after which we would expect that the position becomes one where a respectable income could be made. We are happy to consider ideas that we would invest time and resources into or alternatively if you're interested in working with us on some of our projects then please drop us a line at careers@austriantimes.at and mark it partnerships.
