If crafting words into warm invitations to potential tourists sounds enjoyable, both you and the city can benefit from this job. The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) is recruiting an executive English editor to draft, edit and translate corporate communication materials. The job involves reaching out to English-speaking audiences around the world and persuading them to visit Hong Kong. This will mean working on press releases, speeches and fact sheets used to publicise the board's programmes and activities, including its global marketing campaign and mega events. 'This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who wants to develop a career in corporate communications, or work in tourism,' said Cynthia Leung Mei-po, senior manager of corporate communications and public relations. The ideal candidate must be a graduate in English or translation, with four years to five years of relevant experience. Knowledge of public affairs, journalism or experience in the tourism industry will help. Excellent communication and English-writing skills will not be enough to win this position. Ms Leung said the position required a strategic and analytical thinker to craft the appropriate messages for different groups of stakeholders, including the media, travel trade members and the general public. Being accustomed to working to deadlines will be a useful asset as the work is fast paced and driven by tight schedules.
