    The National newspaper in Abu Dhabi is seeking an experienced, aggressive and talented web editor to take our online sports coverage to the next level.

    We have a growing audience, both local and international, and we're looking for someone with the skills, creativity and initiative to lead the way in building and implementing a strategy for reaching even more readers.

    The opportunities for continued growth are almost limitless: Our "local" coverage area is vast, from the English Premier League to the Volvo Ocean Race, from a full calendar of big-time international events in Abu Dhabi and Dubai (golf, tennis, cricket, Formula One, rugby, horse racing) to local sports leagues.

    • The ideal candidate will have at least five years' experience in online sports journalism and a proven track record of delivering results (i.e., page views) in a fast-paced, deadline driven environment.

    • He or she must adapt to new technologies efficiently and effectively.

    • Being able to edit stories and write clear, concise, web-friendly headlines is essential.

    • Knowledge of international sports is a plus; being able to work in a diverse, multi-cultural environment is essential.

    The National offers a competitive salary, full health benefits and five weeks of paid vacation per year.

    If interested, please send a resume and cover letter to sports editor Robert Mashburn at rmashburn@thenational.ae

    The pay, from what I understand, is pretty damn good with incentives.

    Friends/ex-co-workers have been there for two-plus years. It's not for everyone, but they're still there. One is in sports and he gets some cool assignments. Also, the great Chuck Culpepper works there.

    Buddy of mine went to work for a paper in Abu Dhabi. May have been this outfit. I'm not sure. His take: "We're making like the 1990s over here. Fully staffed newsrooms, good pay and up-to-date technology. Almost makes you forget that most of the time you're a mouthpiece for the Sheik."
