1843 magazine, sister publication to The Economist, is an award-winning magazine of narrative journalism, named for the year The Economist was founded. The Economist is a weekly news magazine based in London, first published in 1843. With its headquarters in London, The Economist has offices and people across the globe, and is valued by its customers for its world-class insights and rigorous journalism. We offer competitive salaries, a comprehensive benefits package that includes paid vacation, health insurance, paid parental leave and bonus schemes that recognise and reward individual and team performance.
At 1843 magazine we tell extraordinary stories from around the world. We’ve published major features from Iran, Japan and Bangladesh, and are equally interested in new ideas from America and Britain. We tell stories from the ground up, usually with people at the heart. 1843 magazine is a digital-only magazine published on Economist.com as a contrast to the analytical approach of The Economist.
We are currently seeking a full-time senior editor, who will work with a highly professional and dynamic team and be based in the US. This is an exciting opportunity to work at The Economist and be part of a team that is expanding its publication of ambitious narrative journalism.
To apply, please send a CV, a critique of our coverage and three ideas for features (and suggested authors) to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 21st 2021.
