Hey folks. A very cool org – the Global Press Journal – is hiring a team of freelance fact checkers. Details below!
Global Press exists to create a more just and informed world by employing local journalists to produce ethical, accurate news coverage from the world's least-covered places. We train and employ local women journalists to report on their own communities, and have more than 40 independent news bureaus across two dozen countries. Find out more about us, and the work we do, here: https://globalpressjournal.com
We’re currently looking for experienced freelance fact checkers to join our team. It’s an exciting opportunity to be part of a project that prioritizes accuracy and ethics in reporting. We have a unique method of fact checking that prioritizes local information over what’s available online, so open minds and people not afraid to hop on a Skype call with reporters around the world are required! Must have an expert eye for detail and willingness to leave no stone unturned. We’ve got expansions in the pipeline, so there’s lots of work to be done, and we pay well: $100/article to start. Skills in the languages our reporters file in – French, Spanish, and Nepali – are a big asset.
Send a resume and cover letter to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we think you’d be a good fit, we’ll ask you to complete a brief fact check test, and if that goes well – you’re hired. Feel free to contact me with any questions, and looking forward to seeing your applications!
