openDemocracy is a global independent media outlet dedicated to challenging power and inspiring change. Our recent journalism – for example on ‘dark money’, misinformation, women’s and LGBTIQ rights and COVID-19 – has triggered law change, parliamentary debate, criminal and regulatory investigations, action by public health bodies and much more. Our stories attract widespread media coverage, including in the The New York Times, Guardian, New Yorker, Daily Mail, CNN, BBC, Deutsche Welle, Al-Jazeera and many others across the world.
This is a new role in a fast-growing team. We’re looking for a creative and highly-organised news and features editor to help lift openDemocracy’s editing game: everything from ensuring that our headlines are sharper and our copy is crisper and more compelling, through to making our internal planning and production processes more efficient, transparent and streamlined.
A key priority for openDemocracy is to help build a more inclusive international media ecosystem. We strongly encourage applications from all groups that are under-represented among media workers.
Please review the details of this opportunity and submit your application online by Friday 28 August 2020 at 4pm GMT, including a CV and a personalised cover letter telling us why this is the job for you. Please also state your salary expectations.
