Join a team which has unique expertise combining the power of journalism and the law to advance media freedom, foster more inclusive economies, and promote human rights.

We are now seeking a talented, high-energy and experienced Editor to drive our Inclusive Economies news coverage.

Reporting from the ground in more than 70 countries, our global news team covers the new frontier of human rights. From investigating slavery in supply chains, to the human impact of climate change, to how data-driven technology and AI are impacting people, we report on challenges affecting fundamental human rights and freedoms.

You will produce daily news as well as exclusive and unique long form stories, staying ahead of the curve on legal and policy changes, exploring and articulating the practical impact of big economic trends and COVID-19 on human rights and society at large.

With excellent news judgment, strong understanding of the subject matter areas, and experience of writing for online audiences, you will work with the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s award-winning global news team to produce unique stories that have impact, drive conversations, and raise awareness of the relation between major economic trends and people.
