POLITICO

Title
Standards & Ethics Editor
Details
POLITICO is looking for an experienced editorial leader of impeccable judgment and a broad range of journalistic interests to become the publication’s inaugural Standards & Ethics Editor. This role will sit at the heart of our editorial team, working proactively with other senior editors and the entire newsroom to ensure the integrity of our journalism across all platforms. 

As much as any editor or reporter upholds high standards – and as much any editorial employee is expected to behave ethically – there are countless issues that come up in the course of doing journalism that a newsroom leader dedicated to standards and ethics will help the publication work through successfully. This role comes with a robust mandate to uphold POLITICO’s editorial values and commitment to authoritative, nonpartisan and tough-mindedly fair journalism; to serve as an advocate for readers; to provide an essential quality check on all the work we do; and to set guidelines but more importantly in real time help journalists resolve knotty ethical questions as they arise.
