Job descriptionWhat we need
English writers: Full time - paid internship. We are targeting students, graduates and first-time employees.
We are expanding our range of localisation services in partnership with a leading US language services provider. We are looking to form an entirely new English specialist department dealing with the Dialogue List script editing of film and TV projects prior to distribution by major Hollywood studios.
If you're an aspiring screenwriter, transcriber, English major, teacher, copywriter or have a great command of the English language as well as a close attention to detail - please apply! We are targeting students, graduates and first time employees.
***Please send your CV***
While the position does not require a formal degree, any undergraduate and/or postgraduate degree in English literature, screenwriting, or film is advantageous.
All candidates will be required to complete an international industry standard subtitling test. This test is designed to highlight your English grammar and creative writing skills. It is also designed to showcase your feel for the type of tasks required for the position. The purpose of the test is not to test your knowledge of the software or technical specifications of subtitling. It is a prerequisite for consideration.
Successful writers will be given training by a US specialist before starting projects. We are looking for English writers as we work through the growing pains of building this new team. Permanent positions may be made available to top-performing writers.
Once offered the paid internship, you will be required to work Tuesday through Saturday.
*** Once you are offered full-time employment after three months, you are promoted to Junior English Editor and receive a salary of R8,381.00 per month *** Thereafter, raises are based on performance ***
