One of the best weekly community newspapers in Texas is looking for the right Managing Editor who is ready to work, learn and continue a tradition of covering the community better than any other news medium in the area. The Leader covers the Heights, Oak Forest and Garden Oaks, and our readers love what they get delivered each week.

Here's what we're looking for:

1. Someone who knows how to write news stories, both the quick ones and the in-depth ones;

2. Someone who knows how to plan a newspaper. The right person can work with a team of freelancers to make sure we have the entire community covered;

3. Someone who can take in-focus pictures, can frame a shot, and understands the value of solid art on the front page each week;

4. Someone who can use InDesign. We have others who help lay out the paper, but we'd like the managing editor to play a role in this as well;

5. Someone who knows how to write a local column. We need a Managing Editor who is willing to become a voice in the community.

Here are the details of the position: This is a full-time job, but because we're a weekly, most work can be done between the hours of 9-5:30. Every once in a while, there are evening events that need to be covered, but that may be once or twice a month.

The perfect person for this position is someone who loves news and loves the results of covering a community the right way. The right person for the job may be an up-and-coming journalist or one who has been in the industry for a while and just wants a secure place to settle in and build a great news product every week.

We offer benefits, have a great team in place, and we're part of a growing company.
