Job Vacancies and Internships

We currently have two open positions:


1. Editor

Note that AG is an ONLINE platform only – no printed products.

We are looking for a full-time editor – preferably based at our office in Hoedspruit, South Africa. You will work closely with our passionate team in a wonderful bushveld office environment.

AG is respected for blending non-negotiable editorial integrity with our focus on celebrating Africa and doing good. You will need a strong hand to steer the line between editorial integrity and marketing/commercial realities and so play an integral role in driving our business plan forward.

Your primary editorial focus will be on the joy of safari to our wild places, the intrigue of natural history and the importance of conservation and community empowerment efforts. And you will blend anecdote with science and considered opinion. AG is moving towards publishing more safari celebration stories than we have done in the past, so a track record in safari tourism editing/writing will be an advantage.

Fastidious attention to the finest detail is essential. You will be expected to deliver on reasonable deadlines and to operate efficiently when time-dependent story opportunities arise. We expect a good appreciation of publishing into the online social media space, although our marketing team manages the details of that process. Much of our commercial focus is directed at our new private travel & conservation club (browser and mobile app). You will be expected to participate in in-app discussions with our members.

Your immediate team members will include an editorial assistant (Hoedspruit) and a scientific editor (Pretoria). In addition, you will work closely with others who focus on marketing, safari sales, brand management, and strategic direction.

Your primary roles will be:

Sourcing and vetting of stories from our extensive and established networks

Editing of selected stories and marketing collateral (WordPress)

Copywriting of titles, captions and blurbs to optimise engagement

Management of stories and text portions of marketing campaigns through our online production process (Trello)

Management of our editorial strategy/mix

Ad-hoc writing and travel assignments – although the primary focus is on the editorial process

Essential software experience: WordPress

Preferred software experience: Trello, Grammarly, Photoshop, Cloud computing

Salary is negotiable, based on experience. We have a team bonus program based on achieved team targets.

We are looking for a Hoedspruit-based financial controls clerk to assist our Cape Town-based accountant.

Your primary roles will include financial controls, debtor and creditor reconciliations, trip reconciliations and general admin related to lodge suppliers and safari clients. You will work closely with our passionate team in a wonderful bushveld office environment. Accuracy, efficiency and attention to detail are paramount.

Experience in the following are considered essential:

The travel industry (tour operating)

Debtor and creditor reconciliations via relevant software (we use Pastel)

Online banking

Microsoft Excel

Salary is negotiable, based on experience. We have a team bonus program based on achieved team targets.
