The Economist Group is the leading source of analysis on international business and world affairs. We deliver our information through a range of formats, from newspapers and magazines to conferences and electronic services. What ties us together is the objectivity of our opinion, the originality of our insight and our advocacy of economic and political freedom around the world.
We are recruiting a Community and Content Coordinator for a new sustainability hub that brings together the work of The Economist Group’s sustainability-related policy & thought leadership work and its events in this space. This includes the World Ocean Initiative (https://www.woi.economist.com/). The successful candidate will be responsible for engaging, and cultivating the audience for our work in sustainability among national and international policymakers, the private sector and civil society. We have a strong sustainability community around us already from our sustainability coverage as well as major events, such as our flagship World Ocean Summit (https://events.economist.com/world-ocean-summit/), and we are determined to expand this significantly over the coming years.
This unique role would best be filled by an ambitious and dynamic content and community coordinator with strong editing and writing skills, digital expertise and an in-depth knowledge (or a strong interest) in: sustainability; the ocean; and the intersection of science, policy and the economy. The role reports to the Head of the World Ocean Initiative, and is initially remote but will be based in London (flexible working arrangements can be discussed).
