Description:

VICE World News is looking for an outstanding and ambitious multi-platform journalist to join our team in EMEA as Senior Reporter. The right person for this role has a background in international reporting, principally concerning the EMEA region, and a willingness to be deployed internationally. They’re also enthusiastic about finding new ways to report and explain news events to our audience, especially with vertical video formats, and eager to host digital news programming. Finally, this person has experience covering at least two of the following core areas: Extremist groups including the far-right; protests, revolutions, armed conflict and authoritarian regimes; the power structures and politics that shape how people, drugs, money, and weaponry cross borders; the climate crisis and underrepresented communities.

The Senior Reporter will report to the Editor-in-Chief in London. 

In the short term you will… 

  • Seek out and report on major news stories. 
  • Work across different publishing platforms. 
  • Present story ideas to the Editor-in-Chief. 
  • Take a leading role as the host of a new, off-platform VWN news show for digital audiences. 
  • Have a clear idea of the stories that matter and how we approach them.

After 6 months in this role you will… 

  • Be regularly bringing in exclusive news stories. 
  • Be able to report and execute on quick pieces, enterprise, and features while also managing your daily hosting duties and working on vertical video and multi-platform projects as needed.

And after a year you will… 

  • Help to mentor more junior colleagues on the team. 
  • Be working with other news LOBs on multi-platform ideas.

Responsibilities:  

  • Be an ambassador for VICE World News at all times. 
  • Own your beat in terms of daily coverage and exclusives. 
  • Host our daily news show and routinely show up as a reporter on VWN social platforms. 
  • Publish work across multiple platforms. 
  • Assist the VICE World News desk in day-to-day coverage.

You have these:  

  • At least 5 years experience working professionally as a reporter. 
  • A deep knowledge of international affairs and understanding of online journalism. 
  • Experience and evidence of working across multiple platforms and not just text. 
  • On-the-ground experience deploying on international reporting trips. 
  • Enthusiasm for experimenting with new ways of storytelling.

We’d love if you also have these:  

  • Proficiency/fluency in Arabic, French, Spanish or Russian. 
  • A visible presence on social media platforms. 
  • Experience with on-camera work, particularly self-shot.
