Business Life Feature Writer wanted at The National- Abu Dhabi

The National, a quality English language broadsheet and digital news operation based in Abu Dhabi, seeks a feature writer for the business section. This is a great job for a natural writer with an interest in the people who make business happen.

You will be expected to engage in social media and appear on video and radio.
