E&E News seeks editor and team leader
E&E News is looking for an experienced journalist to lead its natural resources team, one of the newsroom’s most important and active teams.
The natural resources editor will lead a team of roughly 10 reporters and coordinate with other editors on coverage and story placement. You will help shepherd stories from conception to publication, support reporters in their work and help make their work better.
You will also punch up headlines and choose appropriate photos, and manage multi-reporter projects.
The company is looking for an active editor — someone who generates story ideas, helps reporters shape stories, find sources and develop their beats.
You should have the story writing skills to help shape features and lead special projects. The ideal team leader would be someone who is either a natural leader or has developed the skills to take charge of a group and inspire them to do their best work.
Email your cover letter explaining why you would be a good fit for this job and your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org Offer a few story ideas and/or show work you have written or edited on natural resources or related beats. Please write “resources editor” in the subject line.
