The editor will oversee all publishing on the website and will help improve the site’s digital presence on social and mobile platforms. This person will edit and write stories, manage projects, oversee the online staff, and help diversify Poynter.org’s contributor base and sources. This person will also help the website think about creative new approaches to storytelling.
(I’ve been serving as interim editor for the past six months and will leave Oct. 11 to start a new job as managing director of Images & Voices of Hope, a nonprofit that highlights how the media can be a force for good.)
The digital business manager, a new position, will be responsible for growing the business operations of Poynter.org and Poynter’s News University. The manager will create initiatives to generate new sources of revenue for both sites and will work with others at the institute to provide online support for professional development programs, public events and the institute’s fundraising efforts.
The deadline to apply for both positions is Monday, Oct. 14.
