NC Policy Watch seeks an education reporter

If you or someone you know might be interested, NC Policy Watch is hiring. We’re looking to fill the vacancy that was created when our former Education Reporter Billy Ball was promoted to Managing Editor earlier this summer. Here’s the official job announcement:

The North Carolina Justice Center, a progressive policy advocacy organization whose mission is to expand opportunity and protect the rights of poor and working individuals and families in North Carolina, is seeking a full-time reporter to cover education issues for its news and commentary project, NC Policy Watch.

The Education Reporter will be responsible for providing daily coverage of the State Board of Education, the Department of Public Instruction, the General Assembly, and local school systems around the state, as well as producing enterprise stories in the field of K-12 education. The position will report directly to the Director of NC Policy Watch and work closely with the NC Policy Watch team.

Candidates must have at least two years of experience as a journalist, including substantial experience writing about and analyzing education issues (five years or more preferred). The position requires excellent writing skills, the ability to work against deadlines and experience working in collaboration with diverse organizations and communities. Experience with social media platforms is required. The successful candidate will demonstrate a commitment to social justice, and enjoy contributing to the organization’s mission by supporting the work of others. Candidates must live in Wake County or in the Triangle region.
