Description:

A leading Caribbean weekly based in the British Virgin Islands seeks a general assignment reporter with multimedia chops, knowledge of investigative journalism, and an interest in reporting on the territory's ongoing recovery from the unprecedented devastation wrought by Hurricane Irma in September 2017. Though the BVI has come a long way since the storm, much remains to be done: Some residents remain homeless; many homes, businesses and public buildings are still in ruins; and the social and economic impacts of the hurricane are expected to last for years. As such, this is a job for a serious, conscientious journalist looking to cover a wide range of issues in print and online. The ideal candidate should have professional journalism experience, multimedia know-how, and good investigative reporting and news analysis skills, although recent graduates with a strong background and internship experience are encouraged to apply. Weekly salary is $350 to start, plus a small housing stipend. Rush cover letter, resume and four published writing clips to bvibeaconjobs@gmail.com.
