Ideally, we are looking for native English speakers or applicants with close to native-speaking language skills, with excellent written and editorial skills and a background in journalism. Experience of working in sports media and an understanding of sports and sports marketing related issues and terminology is essential. A knowledge of handball and the EHF’s competitions would be a definite advantage.
