Your profile

You are an English native level speaker with an excellent command of at least German and French – and ideally also Spanish or another third language – acquired either at university or from working in multilingual corporate communications. You have many years of international business experience and understand what drives communication in major enterprises.

You are an excellent writer and editor, able to write in the customer’s voice and deliver their message to internal and external audiences. You are comfortable with steep learning curves to fully understand a customer’s communication priorities as well as their individual tonality and written style.

You are at home managing key corporate communication accounts, liaising with customers to answer all their language questions and ensure you meet their translation, editing and copywriting needs.

Your tasks

BVIW is renowned for the quality of its work. Our internal quality assurance process demands that all our translations and editing jobs pass to a second native speaker for review. In addition to working on behalf of key communication accounts, you will be responsible for proofreading and editing other team members’ output for in-house and client magazines, press releases, content for intranets and the internet, product and service brochures, annual reports and copy destined for use in conferences and trade fairs.
