The Beaumont Enterprise

Assistant Editor
The Beaumont Enterprise seeks an enthusiastic and versatile Assistant Editor to serve in the No. 2 leadership position in its newsroom. The right candidate will participate in digital efforts, help grow reporters and keep up with the daily demands of a mid-sized coverage area. The Assistant Editor works with the editor to plan coverage, edit stories, handle breaking news, work one-on-one with reporters and oversee a daily news operation that produces a daily paper, daily and weekly email newsletters, special sections and a website that sees hundreds of thousands of visits each month. The ideal candidate will be a leader and a planner who knows how to strategize and execute a wide variety of content — from in-depth features to concise breaking news updates — working collaboratively with writers, designers and editors to execute coverage. In the digital-focused newroom, hitting deadlines, writing SEO headlines, growing audience and driving social media engagement are key metrics. We need a mature, ambitious editor who knows how to organize and run a content calendar and manage staff, has a vision for digital distribution and knows how to juggle a number of short- and long-term assignments at once.
