How to apply

Before you make up your mind about whether this is the perfect role for you, I would suggest you find out a little about me and my work. A good place to start would be the “about” section of this website, where you will find plenty of information - feel free to have a good read through.

If, after you have familiarised yourself with who I am, why not introduce yourself by sending an application email to jobs@paulchoy.com so you can tell me why you should be the successful candidate for this position. A formal CV is not required (although feel free to send one if you prefer ) but you should include details of your educational history, a brief employment history, and any other information you would like to share.

Most importantly though, as researching and managing information is an important part of this role, you must provide answers to the following three questions in your email:

  1. What is the rate of duty charged for the import of bags into Mauritius?

  2. What are the main cameras I use for my photographic projects?

  3. Are there any visa requirements for a Mauritian citizen travelling to Norway?

Good luck with the questions, I am looking forward to hearing from you.
