Global Voices is seeking a Video Editor

Categories: Announcements

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 [1] (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 editor@globalvoicesonline.org. The application deadline is Friday August 24, 2007.
