The Post and Courier is looking for a reporter to cover Charleston city government -- a world-class city that just celebrated its 350th anniversary.

There are opportunities in this Pulitzer Prize-winning newsroom to do some of the best work of your career, limited only by your ambition and curiosity. 

The Post and Courier is a locally owned newspaper, investing in its newsroom and expanding statewide at a time when others are contracting. 

The ideal candidate will be a creative and critical thinker able to look beyond the story of the day toward deeper angles, themes and broader state and national perspectives. We are looking for someone with at least three to five years of experience in a daily newsroom and proven track record of watchdog reporting and well-crafted storytelling.

Charleston offers an incredible quality of life, named No. 1 city in the nation and No. 2 in the world by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine. Enjoy a thriving food and arts scene, surrounded by history and a natural environment that offers boundless outdoor recreation opportunities.

Send your resume, five examples of your best work and a cover letter with ideas on how you would cover this beat to Managing Editor Autumn Phillips at The Post and Courier is an equal opportunity, drug-free workplace.
