|Job title||North America Deputy Desk Editor|
|Location||Home-based in Washington DC area|
|Salary range||Depending on experience|
|Summary||An exciting, ideally full-time, opportunity for a regulatory journalist or policy analyst with detailed understanding of chemicals legislation, particularly TSCA, and the information needs of regulatory compliance professionals to join our busy North America newsdesk of two staff journalists and several freelance reporters.|
Chemical Watch provides businesses worldwide with the information and perspectives they need to safely manage chemicals in products. We provide a 360-degree view of this agenda, impartially reporting on the actions and opinions of all stakeholders in our community. Our company has a strong shared sense of purpose, fuelled by expert and motivated staff who want to make a difference with their work.
CWR continues to enjoy strong global year-on-year growth which is forecast to continue in the next few years. It has more than 50 staff, most based in the UK, but also including 4 in the DC area. We are looking for an individual with drive, enthusiasm and passion. In return, you will find CWR a stimulating place to work and progress your career.
The North America deputy desk editor (DDE) is a new position that is being created in response to the significant rise in regulatory activity over the past 12 months, especially regarding implementation of TSCA. Reporting to the North America Desk Editor, the DDE will be an experienced self-starter – ideally who knows TSCA inside out – and who will help the newsdesk track daily chemical regulatory developments, identify the ‘must write’ articles that our readers need, write articles of their own and edit reporters’ stories. You will need to develop good contacts in business, government and NGOs, and collaborate with our wider news and analyst teams to ensure all our North America-related content is insightful, accurate and valuable.
