Description:

We’re looking for a passionate, sensitive writer interested in exploring human development issues through a particular prism. Global Sisters Report, an award-winning website publication of National Catholic Reporter, is hiring a regional correspondent for Africa/Middle East. We’re looking for someone to write about the varied missions and ministries of Catholic women religious in Africa with context, depth and detail while being able to convey “big picture” themes about human development. Ideal applicants will have experience with international reporting and the ability to manage multiple deadlines and roles within the newsroom.

The preference is to have this person based in the region and able to travel frequently to other African countries and occasionally to the Middle East. Responsibilities include reporting trips to countries in the region, with the expectation of 5-8 stories out of each trip, along with shooting photos and some video. Stories for National Catholic Reporter (GSR’s parent company) may be expected/assigned on occasion.  Candidates must be available when not traveling for a weekly video conference meeting with the staff in the GSR home office in Kansas City, Missouri. Candidates must also recruit and manage freelancers, help develop specific country and regional story ideas, and provide initial edit(s) on stories before they are sent to a GSR editor and a copy desk for final edits. As regional correspondent, this person would also be responsible for promoting the Global Sisters Report website to sisters, including managing and expanding the GSR Whatsapp group and finding other creative ways to bring GSR content to sisters who may not have regular internet access. Please send a cover letter, resume and four to six writing samples to GSR Editor Gail DeGeorge – gdegeorge@ncronline.org – by Feb. 18.
