If you enjoy handling a variety of different sports beats, taking photos, designing pages and constantly learning, we have the job for you.

Unified Newspaper Group is looking to fill our assistant sports editor position for the first time in more than eight years, and we’re looking for someone who can do it all and do it efficiently. If you have a missing piece in your resume, don’t worry, we’re all about teaching, with top-notch mentoring on every aspect of covering sports and enough autonomy to find your own path.

We cover five high schools, so the ability to manage your time wisely, make community contacts and learn quickly is essential. This position is perfect for someone who sees himself or herself as a future sports editor, but it can also work well if you just want to put your nose to the grindstone and keep churning out great sports stories.

Unified Newspaper Group prints three award-winning hyperlocal weekly news publications in Stoughton, Oregon and Verona and one monthly newspaper in Fitchburg, along with a quarterly regional magazine, and we have a culture and a structure you won’t find anywhere else. Constant learning and collaboration is our focus, from our interns to our editors, and good people stick around because they get more than money from being here. If you’re a real journalist and you like telling stories through words, photos and design, you’re sure to find something you like here.

Experience with photography, InDesign and managing websites and social media is a plus. Photo equipment and a laptop are provided, and we stay on top of technology.

The job will be 37-40 hours per week, with a full benefit package including health, dental, vision, paid vacation and much more. UNG is part of Woodward Community Media, a division of Woodward Communications Inc., an employee-owned company based in Dubuque, Iowa. Apply online -- including a cover letter -- and include your best reporting work and any design or photography samples you have by June 25, 2018.
