Monocle is looking to expand its editorial footprint in Europe with a new Zürich-based post. We are looking for a sharp, well-versed editor who can deliver original stories covering urban affairs as well as entrepreneurship, architecture and media. The candidate will be familiar with our editorial reach and be able to deliver daily 200-word bulletins, offer up live radio reports and also turn out exquisite 3,000-word features.
Zürich bureau chief/Mitteleuropa editor
While the post will focus on Switzerland, Austria and Germany, the beat can also be global in nature. If you have an eye and an ear for a good story, like a fast-paced editorial rhythm (you’re perhaps currently working in a broadcast newsroom, editing a leading trade title or on the business desk of a national paper) and also enjoy the odd cocktail party, we’d like to hear from you. Candidates will be expected to file copy in English, speak German and one other language other than English, and be free to travel.
To apply, please send your CV and covering letter.
Herr Carlo Silberschmidt
