Job Vacancy: 
Deputy Editor-in-Chief - Thomson Reuters Foundation

London, UK

Closing Date: 3rd December 2021

We are seeking a Deputy Editor-in-Chief with a strong track record in international journalism, team management, and first-hand multimedia digital experience to help lead our award-winning newsroom.

This is a unique opportunity to participate in shaping the future of the Foundation’s news offering, driving innovation and digital transformation, through audience-data-led editorial decision making.

You will manage teams of award-winning journalists, help set the agenda for what we cover and how we cover it, and deliver content that is worthy of our world-class reputation for trusted, fair, accurate, and in-depth journalism, aimed at purpose-driven professionals.

International affairs is your turf, particularly climate, socio-economic and racial inclusion, ESG, the impact of technology on society, women’s rights and LGBT+ rights. You care about how these forces impact us, and how telling the right stories about that impact will help build better societies.

You bring excellent story judgment, an in-depth knowledge of what drives a digital audience, and talent for motivating teams to produce unique, powerful and impactful content.

As an editorial leader, you will be an evangelist for digital audiences, with a deep understanding of audience development, SEO, and producing content that drives digital engagement. You will be obsessed with the nitty gritty of your teams and their work, while never losing sight of the big picture – serving the audience with the high-quality content that they seek.

Inside the newsroom, you are a collaborator and an enabler. You will run a tight ship, with a robust editorial calendar, and an insistence on timeliness, and quality over quantity. But you will also create a culture of conversation, learning, and working across teams.
