Description:

Page Designer

Little or no copy editing.

No weekends.

If that got your attention, good.

The Yakima Herald-Republic needs a page designer for its universal copy desk.

Specifically, we need a lead designer for the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin, which is designed in Yakima.

The U-B is a six day newspaper. It's a Sunday AM, but an evening paper Monday through Friday.

U-B editors budget the paper and we design and build it.

Essentially, here's the job:

Position requirements:

Experience: A newsroom internship or experience as part of a post-collegiate newsroom staff designing print pages.

The Yakima Herald-Republic is a daily newspaper in Central Washington, an area dominated by vineyards, hop fields, wineries, brewpubs and eateries. If you enjoy the outdoors, you’ll love it here – we’re close to the Cascade Mountains, rivers, lakes and forests. Appreciate the big city? Seattle and Portland, Oregon, are just a few hours away.

This is a diverse community. Yakima County's estimated population is 254,000. Half of the county is Hispanic and Latino, so the ability to speak Spanish would help you build valuable relationships with the community.

Both the YHR and the Union-Bulletin are part of The Seattle Times Co., a family-owned company committed to journalistic excellence. The Blethen family believes that decisions about the Herald and the Bulletin are best made by the people who live and work in each community.

The Seattle Times Co. values diversity in the workplace as well as in our news coverage. The Yakima Herald-Republic is an equal opportunity employer.
