New Internationalist is a magazine committed to social and environmental justice and reporting the under-reported, particularly in the Global South.

We produce in-depth journalism which highlights the world’s unjust power relationships; campaigns for the radical changes necessary to meet the basic needs of all; and brings to life ideas and action in the fight for a more equal and democratic world.

What We’re Looking For

We’re recruiting a digital editor to develop our website and digital strategy. Working as part of the editorial and marketing teams, the digital editor will build our digital presence and drive subscriptions to the magazine via NI’s website and digital channels.

We’re looking for someone full of ideas for digital strategy and day-to-day engagement, who is also committed to tackling oppression and injustice. The person needs to be able to work cooperatively and collaboratively as part of a small team, as well as work independently in this remote role.

As a co-operative with a flat structure, all permanent employees get the same rate of pay — regardless of their position. They are also expected to work with the rest of the co-op to steer the business overall.

We’re an anti-racist, feminist and trans-inclusive organization. We strongly encourage applications from marginalized or oppressed groups who are currently under-represented in journalism.
