Role x You

As Executive Editor, you will serve as the deputy to the Editor in Chief in developing VICE UK as a destination for compelling and unique journalism. You will help manage a team of freelancers and staffers, commission and edit first-class editorial content and will sometimes be called upon to provide editorial cover or produce content yourself. 

Responsibilities:

  • Work closely with the Editor in Chief to manage freelance budget, enforce editorial guidelines and brand voice, deliver special projects and campaigns and help manage freelance journalists and photographers

  • Manage editorial workflow and oversee publishing calendar

  • Manage senior commissioning editor to produce high-quality in-house coverage

  • Editing a wide range of stories, from deepy-reported features to quick hits

  • Bring in an established network of PR contacts and a diverse slate of freelance writers and photographers

  • Work closely with the social editor and Stories team to create and promote VICE content and ensure audience needs and traffic goals are met

  • Represent VICE UK at events and panels where necessary

You have these:  

  • At least 4 years of proven experience editing and leading teams in a newsroom or publication and/or previous experience in a senior journalism role (e.g. section or deputy editor)

  • Strong editing skills and an acute attention to detail, including proven ability to work on  editorial campaigns, investigations and features

  • Previous experience managing junior editors and/or staff writers

  • A knack for finding smart, interesting and insightful stories from the fringes

  • A firm grasp of stories that young people are interested in

  • An understanding of the VICE brand, in terms of both visuals and voice

We’d love if you also had these:

  • Basic Photoshop skills

  • Experience using and/or producing TikTok and Instagram Stories video

Working at VICE:

We want to find people who believe in our mission and goals and feel inspired to grow while they’re here, rather than someone who checks the boxes but isn’t invested. We encourage you to apply and show us what you’ve got.

VICE Media Group prioritises the voices, ideas and people that other media companies miss. We believe that innovation is a direct result of diverse, inclusive cultures so we don’t just “tolerate” differences, we celebrate it and see it as essential to our staff, culture, and business.
