“The News & Issues desk at VICE.com is looking for an energetic, motivated deputy editor to be our strategic lead. The right person has a news background with a track record in getting scoops in one or more of the following beats: Inequality, Race, Health, Drugs, Environment, and Gender/Identity. They also have an excellent news sense, a talent for managing people, and a quick brain for thoughtful, timely, punchy, sometimes funny, always human, conversation-starting stories.
The deputy is a rigorous editor who is persnickety about copy and capable of getting even the trickiest of drafts into publishable shape. This person will serve as a senior leader across the newsroom and will motivate their team to produce their best work. They will think strategically and creatively about packaging and formats, always looking for the most interesting way to tell a story, and seek opportunities to collaborate with the social, video, and events teams.”
