Online production editors required
- Europe, USA and Australia

Work on the world's leading cycling web site
Training provided to qualified applicants

September 5, 2006: Cyclingnews, the world's leading cycling web site, is expanding and requires full time online production editors for its offices in Gent, Belgium; Sydney, Australia, and Virginia, USA.

The position requires applicants to have a keen interest and thorough knowledge of competitive cycling, as well as some editorial or writing experience. The position will involve producing reports, results, photos and features from the world of cycling, so fluency in a second language is also an advantage, as is a familiarity with online production techniques.

The applicants will need to be self-starters as the position involves regular liaison with production editors in all Cyclingnews offices. As Cyclingnews is a 24/7 daily news operation, the position will require regular weekend work. The weekend duties are handled on a rotating shift basis with other production editors, so the applicant must be flexible in their work schedule. However, the majority of work will be done during normal business hours on week-days.

The online editors will be required to have familiarity with online production applications (a good working knowledge of HTML and Photoshop are important skills) and could also be required to attend major cycling events in each region. However, the primary responsibility is the production of content for publication on the web site. Training in online production techniques can be provided to the right applicant with an interest in cycling, ability to handle the technical processes involved and an ability to communicate.

In your application, please outline your location as we are primarily looking for persons who reside in each specific country, and in the case of Europe, have English as a first language (or be very fluent if not) and hold an EU passport. Please send your CV with a covering letter via email to jobs@cyclingnews.com with "Online editing position - (specific region)" in the subject line.
