The written word is at the heart of what we do. We own two media brands A Word About Wind (AWAW) and Energy Storage Report (ESR), each distributing a mix of premium, and freemium, weekly news and insight to a growing audience.

We regularly publish interviews with business leaders in their respective sectors and support this written analysis with live interviews that form part of our parent company's programme of events (held both virtual and in-person), most notably the Financing Wind conference series and the Wind Investment Awards programme.

We also publish regular media-branded special reports, including, over the past six months, the Legal Power List 2020 and our inaugural Salary Benchmarking Index for wind industry professionals. In December, we will publish the Green Fund Power List 2020.

This media content forms a key part of our active and growing membership programme.

Finally, we provide an internal copywriting and editorial content service to support new and existing Tamarindo Group clients with compelling and insightful marketing content.

See https://www.awordaboutwind.com/insight/analysis and https://www.awordaboutwind.com/insight/reports for a sample of our work.

Throughout 2020 we have proved beyond question that there is an opportunity for Tamarindo Group to sell more editorial and content services to external clients. We also head into 2021 with a busy timetable of projects to work on for our internal clients.

The time has come to expand our team of professional writers.

Reporting to Richard Heap, editorial and content lead, the editorial and content writer will be expected to get involved in all forms of writing as outlined above.

The successful candidate should expect to head straight for the deep end, generating news and editorial content for our media brands and supporting our internal clients from day one. Soon thereafter the candidate will be expected to take the reins on longer form writing projects, whether editorial-led special reports or client-led reports and white papers.
