Zagreb, Croatia

Do you love aviation and global current affairs? We may just have the job for you! :)

Read more about us below:

ch-aviation is a company that provides accurate data and news on the commercial airline industry. Our News team currently has six team members that work from various locations (Cyprus, Austria, Lithuania, Greece, Australia, and South Africa) across the globe.

As such, we are currently looking for full-time English-speaking news aggregators based in either Zagreb or Belgrade, to help build our newsroom.

Job Description

As a news aggregator, your job will require you to both monitor and evolve our various international newsfeeds - both active and static - with an eye for developments in the commercial civil aviation niche. You will therefore have a strong interest in global events/current affairs and aviation as well as a keen sense of international geography and geopolitics.

The other part of your job will require you to occasionally write brief summaries of news articles that you have aggregated using a near-mother-tongue level of English and using the constraints of a ch-aviation news article.

The job itself is ideally suited to an inquiring/curious personality but with an ability to integrate into a tight-knit team. Aside from a disciplined, analytically-oriented mindset, you must also be able to work within established guidelines, within set timeframes, and under a supervising editor.

Given the nature of our work, a strong passion for and background knowledge of civil aviation is also a requirement. The ideal candidate will therefore have a background in either history, economics, or both.

As part of the team, you will:

  • Monitor newsfeeds that span 24 hours in various languages and scripts
  • Update said newsfeeds using correct terminology and wordings
  • Monitor various static information sources
  • Occasionally summarise and write short news briefs (up to 90 words) in English
  • Independently research and review aviation-related articles which may or may not be in English;
  • Do additional research to corroborate/clarify reports;
  • Extract from said articles, information relevant to the ch-aviation market context;
  • Work to set deadlines;
  • Work with a supervising editor to ensure set standards and quality are maintained.

You might be a great fit if you have:

  • A mother-tongue standard of English language, both oral and written;
  • A demonstrated passion for current affairs and civil aviation
  • Ability to work with Boolean operators;
  • Verbal and written communication skills, strong attention to detail, critical thinking;
  • Ability to work independently and to collaborate with an editor, problem-solve, self-organize, manage own work schedule and time, meet hard and soft deadlines;
  • Ability to keep data and information confidential;
  • Strong general computer skills as well as Google search skills;
  • Previous experience with Microsoft Office suite (Word, Outlook)
  • Previous experience working in a multi-cultural, multi-national environment is a plus
  • Language skills in Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Farsi, Japanese, Mandarin or Cantonese and experience with language translation tools or knowledge/experience in the airline industry a big plus.

What is in it for you:

  • A real opportunity to grow fast and kickstart your professional career
  • Internal training and courses which start with your onboarding process
  • Contribution to the 3rd pillar after 4 years of working with us
  • After a while, a fully paid workcation – you could work from an interesting location for a week, fully covered by the company! Next location – Thailand 🏝️
  • A work-life balance - we support your professional, family, and personal goals, by having:
    • Flexible working hours and hybrid work-from-home policy
    • Vacation days that increase with your age and years of service
    • Option to work 4-days a week (36 hours for 90% of the pay)
  • Fruits and coffee
  • MultiSport card

Application process:

If you think you would be a perfect match for our company and the advertised position, submit your motivation letter and Curriculum Vitae in English.

Please note that only Applications in the English language will be evaluated, as an international team is running the recruitment process. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted. All applications will be considered under the terms and conditions of confidentiality in accordance with the regulations of personal data protection.
