Protocol seeks a workplace policy reporter

July 8, 2021

Posted by Chris Roush

Protocol is seeking a reporter who can break news and tell original, inside stories about lawmakers’ and regulators’ efforts to grapple with the rapidly changing workplace.

From warehouses and food service to the C-suite, the world of work has changed — and regulation has struggled to keep up. Technology has had a major impact on nearly every sector, by enabling increased automation, gig work, remote work and more. State, federal and international regulators and lawmakers are constantly trying to adapt old rules and adopt new ones in order to protect both workers and innovative businesses. Protocol will give business leaders the news and information they need as basically every industry in the world tries to navigate this constantly shifting landscape.

What You’ll Need:

We’re not looking for reporters to summarize what others have already reported; we’re looking for reporters who can consistently break news that other reporters have to follow. Our ideal candidates are smart, well-sourced and have a knack for finding out what’s happening and explaining what it means and why it matters to a savvy and knowledgeable audience.

The strongest candidates will be able to explain complicated legislation in clear, plain English; converse comfortably with Congress, lobbyists and advocates; identify building trends and movements in the regulatory world before new laws are on the table; and understand how technology affects the world of work and workers in every sector.

Location: Given the nature of the role, candidates in the Washington, D.C. area are preferred, but we welcome candidates from the New York or San Francisco areas who can show the ability to develop sources among federal and state regulators, lobbyists and executives.
