An overview of the opportunity
We’re looking for an editor with experience working on a wide variety of online features including news; whilst also having experience in longform reporting and personal experience essays.
The successful candidate should be very experienced in shaping features from a pitch and a first draft and line edits, through fact-checking and publication; this person will be someone who loves to work on diverse topics and can get up to speed on whatever subject any story might cover, or any set of unique circumstances that a complicated story might bring.
These stories will come from a range of sources from freelancers and staffers which will range from deeply reported narratives to longer personal essays; the ability to confidently jump from one situation to another, and juggle several at once, is essential. A proven track record of working with a diverse cast of writers, someone who is naturally intrigued about how these stories are shared online and someone passionately engaged in social media.
