VitalBriefing, a Luxembourg-based digital media company creating curated business-related news, thought leadership and other online content, is hiring freelance writers to work from home on a broad range of products and services covering different subject areas and industry verticals.

We are initially offering steady contract work, but over time will offer full-time writing and editing positions.

We provide clients throughout the world with multiple formats of content including daily, weekly and monthly curated news summaries for internal and external use, business intelligence, competitor monitoring reports, in-depth reports, thought leadership and other content for corporate publications, websites and social media.

We require candidates to demonstrate an ability to write clear and concise English, along with sharp editing skills, and readiness to follow style requirements that may vary according to the client. Candidates able to understand material in other languages, in particular French and German, are especially welcome.

A good understanding of banking, finance and related issues, and/or science, technology and their applications, is a definite advantage. A background in business reporting and editing, particularly in synthesizing quantities of information, is also a plus, as is experience at business and general news wire services.

Being comfortable learning, using and customising proprietary online search technology and writing platforms will boost candidates' appeal.

Successful candidates will be self-starters who work quickly and efficiently, and can:

  • Get up to speed with new topics and fields.
  • Synthesise information from a variety of sources.
  • Combine brevity with readability and avoid jargon.
  • Make every word count for audiences of time-pressured professionals who rely on our information for its conciseness, depth, accuracy and relevance.
  • Adjust writing tone and voice for multiple professional and non-professional audiences.
  • Demonstrate reliability in meeting fixed deadlines.


When responding, please include your CV and where possible URLs for your LinkedIn profile and/or personal web site. References are also welcome.
