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 New York Times, The Guardian, The New Yorker, Daily Mail, CNN, BBC, Deutsche Welle, Al Jazeera and many others across the world.

We are looking for experienced, flexible and self-directing subeditors to lift standards at openDemocracy to a new level. We deal in subtle, unfamiliar ideas and complex investigations, but we believe it is important that they reach as many people as possible. Help us bring world-changing content to a wide audience through copy that flows clearly, beautifully and accurately, headlines and pictures that grab the eye and layout that holds it.

We are open to applications from those looking for freelance work as well as those wanting an employment contract.

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.

To apply

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.

Peter Geoghegan: dark money and dirty politics

Democracy is in crisis and unaccountable flows of money are helping to destroy it. Peter Geoghegan’s new book, ‘Democracy for Sale: Dark Money and Dirty Politics’, charts how secretive money, lobbying and data has warped our democracy.

How has dark money bought our politics? What can be done to change the system?

Join us for a journey through a shadowy world of dark money and disinformation stretching from Westminster to Washington, and far beyond.
