The Africa Report seeks a Digital Editor

 

 The Africa Report, published by Groupe Jeune Afrique, is looking for a digital editor.


We cover the continent's fast-accelerating economies, and its dynamic politics: our challenge is to be more timely, but also more in depth.

As our publication evolves to a digital-first platform, adding daily analysis and production to our award-winning print edition, we need an editor with an eye to transitions.

The post will have a substantial managerial and administrative component. The digital edition will be targeted predominantly at business readers and specialised professionals.

  • Work on wider print/digital content interaction.
  • Setting up and meeting the key performance indicators of the website in liaison with the digital team.


Experience

The candidate will ideally have writing, editing and commissioning experience at a reputable newspaper, magazine or digital publication.

They should be enthusiastic, good communicators, able to generate ideas on a daily basis, and keen to help the team on a range of tasks big and small. They should have a wide network of writers at hand, and/or the drive to grow one, both correspondents and opinion columnists.

The candidate will speak native English, possess some command of French. A language from the continent would be a plus.
