Possible fields of work and teams

Here you will find a short introduction to possible job fields with us:

Foreign Trade Editorial Team

The foreign trade editorial team is the core of the content we produce and publish. Here, content editors work in the main areas of customs and taxes as well as import regulations. Researched foreign trade and economic information and facts are evaluated and the results are prepared for specific projects and clients. Excellent foreign language skills are used not only in contact with our correspondents and contacts on site, but also in communication with authorities and institutions in the respective countries. Content is prepared and published primarily in English with a high level of textual confidence and a precise style of expression.

IT

Information technology is used almost everywhere – the areas of responsibility are correspondingly diversified: In addition to network and (server) administration, we develop and support specialised applications for the preparation of interface- or project-specific target data from international data sources in various formats. In the area of programming, the team works on various, mostly web service-based applications and interfaces to leading merchandise management, foreign trade and customs systems such as SAP or Oracle.

Administration & Organisation

Here, the focus is on contact with our customers: enquiries are answered by telephone and in writing, and we are the first point of contact for liaison and organisational questions. With the help of our merchandise management system, orders are processed, subscriptions to our publications are managed and accounting tasks are taken care of. In addition, the administration offers support in organisational matters.

Graphics & Marketing

The graphics and marketing team is broadly positioned at our company. Changes from authors' manuscripts and legal bases are incorporated into existing publications and new books and brochures are produced. These publications are supervised – in close coordination with proofreading and editing – until they are ready for printing. Layouts and book covers are designed for new publications. The team also designs advertising material such as flyers, advertisements, image brochures, etc. The conception of trade fair and congress appearances is also based here.

Editing

Our predominantly German-language editorial department oversees our various forms of publication and specialised content in cooperation with the foreign trade editorial team. This includes in part the preparation – but essentially the supervision of manuscripts until they are ready for printing and the release or review of the results.

Student Assistance

Student employees support our foreign trade editorial team as assistant content editors. We are also regularly looking for student assistants in the area of publishing administration as well as in printing and further processing. In the IT area, the team will involve you in various assistant activities for ongoing projects.

Nice to know

Childcare: We contribute to possible childcare costs for our employees and thus actively support the compatibility of work and family.

Fitness: We participate in the company fitness programme of Oase, a leading fitness centre in Bochum. This allows all our employees to train there free of charge.

Catering: In addition to coffee, tea, organic whole and oat milk and lemon ginger water, the Abokiste supplies us with organic fruit.
