There are no jobs in ‘grammar’ as such, but if you have poor English it will be evident from your CV and cover letter. You are immediately disadvantaged. Good grammar nowadays is a must.
For many people, their job description includes some writing – it might be the minutes of a meeting, a report or writing the ‘specials’ on a menu board outside a restaurant.
Most journalists nowadays work as freelances and sell their copy to media outlets. If that copy needs to be substantially edited or amended because of grammatical errors, it is easier for the media outlet to simply use someone else the next time. The journalist has become an overhead instead of an asset.
If you work in public relations, your reputation, and the reputation of your clients or company depends, in part, on the written press releases, briefing documents, annual reports etc. that you issue. You cannot, in conscience, sign-off on a written piece of text if you do not have a good understanding of grammar.
