Job adallah and his younger brother- in-law are now writing a new copy of the popular Norwegian daily, Kurs.
Kurs was founded in 2013 by former Norwegian premier Soren Anderssen and features an opinion column and a wide range of editorial content, including a daily feature about the health of people with chronic illnesses.
The paper has already been in the news recently after Anderssen’s appointment as Norway’s prime minister, with the former journalist claiming his resignation was due to his dissatisfaction with the new government’s policies, according to local media.
The younger Adalah and a partner at the company, Veen, have been looking for an opportunity to copywrite the daily, which is the only publication in Norway that is funded entirely by advertising.
Kuras recently announced a deal with Freespeed Media, a major Norwegian media conglomerate that owns Kurs and a number of other publications, to distribute the new copy in Norway and in the rest of the world.
The two are currently looking for copywriters who have experience in editing and producing print, digital and digital media, according Toen, who also said he expects to start recruiting soon.
The news of Adalahs job posting came as he travelled to Germany to attend the annual Kurs conference, which was held on Tuesday in the German capital, and he hopes to start his job at the newspaper in the next few weeks.
“We are looking to fill the positions soon,” he told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
“We need people who have good editorial skills and also good copywriting.
We want people with experience editing print and digital content.
We need people with good editorial writing skills and copywriting skills.”
According to Toen and Kurs’ managing editor, Arne Møller, the decision to hire Adalas brother- to-be was taken by Adalay, a close friend and former employee of the family, as a way of establishing a stronger connection with the family.
“Adalah has been a big part of the team since we were kids, and has been the driving force behind the Kurs brand,” Møllers statement reads.
“I think it is important to keep him and his family connected to the brand.”
According the paper, Adalahi has also worked at the daily since it was launched and currently writes for a daily and a digital format.
He said the news of the job offer came as a surprise to him.
“This is a huge shock, but I am thrilled,” he said.
“He is a talented person and has a strong personality.
I am very proud of his achievements and the positive influence he has on the company.”© Scoop Media
