Global Voices is seeking to hire a Video Editor.
THE JOB: The Video Editor will be responsible for keeping track of online citizen-produced video from throughout the world and selecting clips to be featured and contextualized in articles on the Global Voices web site 2-3 times per week. The Video Editor will work closely with the rest of the Global Voices editorial staff (managing, regional and language editors), and will also be expected to attend regular online editorial meetings.
As GV is a virtual organization, the Video Editor will not be expected to relocate. Regular access to high-speed internet connectivity will, however, be a key factor in being able to carry out this job.
THE REQUIREMENTS: Our ideal candidate has an international outlook and solid experience in blogging and online citizens’ media with a special emphasis on online video. Solid English-language writing editing skills are a must, but a strong familiarity with the current tools, web sites and trends in online video worldwide is important. S/he has the ability to work independently and responsibly with only remote supervision.
Ideally, s/he will have the ability to read and write well in at least one language other than English and have a working knowledge of other languages. Preference will be given to candidates from outside the United States and Western Europe.
To apply, please send your CV and a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application deadline is Friday August 24, 2007.
