This position is based in Berlin and works closely with management and the AsiaBerlin team at enpact. In this position, you will lead writing, copy editing, researching and coordinating news programming and other content presentation for the AsiaBerlin activities. You will develop sources, maintain contacts and pursue leads that result in original stories. Within your role, you will also provide leadership that encourages excellence and assists in the smooth operation of the organization, and maintain a deep level of familiarity with relevant issues, newsmakers, and current events. In addition, you will also be responsible for participating in promotional activities including public appearances and special projects.

- Creativity: Develop story ideas; write, shoot and edit news stories for on-air/live broadcasting; use graphics and new forms of media, such as webcam interviews and viewer-contributed pictures. We’re looking for creatives, not content farmers. Clear communication (and a great attitude) is key.
