News Editor, World News Desk
We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Editor on our world news desk. You’ll help shape the coverage of the pandemic from vaccine development and variants to the wuhan lab leak theory. This role will require you to remain on top of current scientific debates over coronavirus, reading the competition thoroughly and coming up with impactful commissioning in coordination with science reporters, the wider world news desk and other desks across the newsroom. It requires forward planning, diplomacy, a passion for accuracy and a willingness to experiment new and innovative story-telling formats. You’ll also be expected to edit a range of articles depending on the day, participate in internal planning meetings as well as occasionally present in news conferences when needed. Weekend shifts are required as part of the team rota.
