Ultimately, we are looking for an innovative self-starter with excellent editorial judgment, a keen eye for detail and a plan to turn our award-winning journalism into eye-catching content that reflects our values and wider editorial strategy.
Applicants should submit an assessment of how The Economist currently uses social media to engage audiences, including a series of recommendations on what we could do better. This assessment is the most important part of the application, so make sure you explain your proposals thoroughly and clearly.
We will read this assessment blind (ie. without seeing your name or your experience).
