Job openings

We are constantly on the lookout for outstanding professionals to join our team and help take us to the next level.

We think we’re pretty great to work with. Our mission is to help Eastern Europe develop. To do that we raise awareness about business opportunities in the region and connect potential business partners.

This is done through our publication, which is the world’s leading source of information about investment in CEE, reaching 1.3 million readers a year, and a set of business events in the UK, Nordics, US and beyond.

Our team is located partially in the UK and partially in the region (e.g. Warsaw, Budapest, Bucharest). We foster a family environment that celebrates and supports the success of our team — collectively and individually.

Take a look at the openings we have below. If one of them aligns with your talents and you know you can reach the desired goals and make a big difference — we’d love to hear from you.

To apply, send your CV and a cover letter (100-150 words) to careers@emerging-europe.com, stating why you believe you are ideal for the position.

 

  • Emerging Europe is an organisation whose mission is to contribute to the region’s social, economic and democratic growth. We do this by bringing the world together to create a better future for the 23 countries of the region.

    We are looking for a business-oriented reporter based in the Western Balkans to help us create our unique content — read by more than 2.5 million people across the globe each year. 

    You must be able to write in English at a level of proficiency similar to that of a native speaker, and have a grasp of regional trends, both in business and politics, as well as cultural and environmental issues. 

    As we are looking for a business-oriented reporter, a good understanding of economics and business principles is key.

    We are looking for a self-starter, willing to work independently and remotely and able to meet deadlines.

    Your age and educational background are unimportant: what interests us is your ability to write, and write well. 

    Send your application to craig@emerging-europe.com via email, including all of the following:

    • an original article of around 350 words on a current business or investment trend in the Western Balkans
    • links to previously published work
    • your CV

  • Emerging Europe is currently seeking an overachiever sales professional who will discover the needs of private and public sector organisations and show how our solutions and services can help them.

    This requires the ability to develop deep and meaningful relationships with those who are hearing from us for the first time, as well as those who’ve known us for a while and are looking to start working with us.

    We provide our salespeople with a massive suite of products and services to improve the lives of our clients, while creating great opportunities to grow a book of business and cross sell.

    We’ve done that mistake in the past and we no longer hire backgrounds. If you’re average, you’ll be uncomfortable here. But if you’re a superstar, you will thrive here.

    This is an outstanding opportunity to not only create great financial success for our clients, but also for yourself. We fully support candidates who are willing to put in the effort to build a book of business. We will also invest strongly to help you learn all critical skills and understand our clients’ industries.

    Main responsibilities include:

    • Making outbound sales calls to prospective clients on a daily basis
    • Following a structured sales process to profile and qualify prospective clients
    • Scheduling quality appointments for our Commercial Director who will help close larger or more complex opportunities

    The successful candidate must be:

    • A self-starter who is willing to make over 60 calls each day
    • Mentally tough and willing to take regular rejection
    • Consistent in performing measurable and effective sales behaviours
    • Highly coachable and able to implement feedback from its superiors
    • Detail-oriented and organised with excellent follow-up skills

    WARNING: You should only apply if you view yourself as a sales hunter! We need you to consistently perform sales behaviours. What’s in it for you is a career path that can lead to outstanding personal financial success.
