We are hiring!

Is your talent in social media campaign skills underused at your current job?

Do you care about journalism and wonder why people fall for “fake news”?

Are you passionate about media education across Asia?

If so, we want you! And yes, we always make fun of each other and get paid for that. Isn’t that sweet? 

The Strapline team at the Journalism and Media Studies Centre, the Univeristy of Hong Kong, seeks to appoint an executive assistant to take care of administrative matters and serve as a social media power user to communicate with the audience on daily basis.   

Interested? You can apply online.

The successful candidate should have a degree in media studies, education, public relations, journalism, or a related field with at least three years of relevant work experience and proficiency in written and spoken English.

Fluency in other Asian languages, especially Thai and Indonesian/Malay is an advantage. 

A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits. 


The University only accepts online application for this post. After you complete the application form and upload your up-to-date C.V., please visit our YouTube channel and Facebook page to create an original meme or GIF from the content that can be used on various social media platforms.

You need to send the meme/GIF file to jmsc4@hku.hk. It’s cumbersome, we know, but the university system only allows pdf or word fromat, so, we have to ask you to email us your awesome work separately 🙁

Review of applications will start as soon as possible and continue until February 10, 2019.
