Young Audience Editor, The Business Times

SPH Media Trust  

Job Description

The Business Times (BT) is South-east Asia’s leading business publication based in Singapore, the region’s financial hub. 

As BT’s first-ever Young Audience Editor, you’ll pioneer BT’s outreach to young audiences. Your job is to help young Singaporeans get ahead in aspects of life that matter deeply to them – career, money, and life goals – through creative, informative, and engaging content that delights.

In this role, you’ll lead a diverse team of talent with editorial, design, social media and community-building skills, to put out regular content, initiatives and events. You’ll also work closely with our product team to innovate new content formats, widgets, and UI/UX improvements to boost user engagement.

You ideally have:

  • A good grasp of economics, business and finance concepts. You pay attention to global and local business and financial news, and you understand how these events affect our everyday lives.
  •  A deep conviction that such knowledge should be made accessible and relatable for everyone. You have a knack for demystifying jargon, and speaking plainly.
  • The ability to create and plan content that makes people laugh, feel, think, and want to share it with their friends. If you’re comfortable creating and planning content in bite-sized formats – like social media posts, and short-form reels – that’s a big plus.
  •  A sense of humour, creativity, and a spirit of risk-taking. You “get Gen Z”: what catches their attention, what makes them tick, and what matters to them most.

Job Requirements


  • A bachelor’s degree or equivalent
  • Knowledge in economics, business, and/or finance
  • Familiarity with social media and e-newsletters
  • At least 4 years of working experience in online journalism or content creation
  • Experience working in multimedia formats spanning text, video and graphics would be preferred
  • Knowledge of design thinking, UI/UX best practices, agile frameworks and digital product management is a plus


  • Permanent / Full Time
