We deliver our information through a range of formats, from newspapers and magazines to conferences and electronic services. What ties us together is the objectivity of our opinion, the originality of our insight and our advocacy of economic and political freedom around the world.
We are recruiting an editor for the World Ocean Initiative. The successful candidate will be responsible for engaging, and cultivating the audience for our work on the ocean among national and international policy-makers, the private sector and civil society. We have a strong ocean community around us already from our flagship World Ocean Summit, and we are determined to expand this significantly over the coming years.
This unique editorial role would best be filled by an ambitious and dynamic journalist with digital expertise and an in-depth knowledge (or a strong interest) in: the ocean; the intersection of science, policy and the economy; and sustainability. The role reports to the head, World Ocean Initiative, and is based in London.
The World Ocean Initiative (see woi.economist.com for details) builds on the success of the Economist Event’s flagship World Ocean Summit to catalyse progress on aspects of the sustainable ocean economy through carefully designed and sequenced workstreams. The Initiative is a commercially ambitious undertaking which aims to create a multi-year programme, and year-round activity, by leveraging the full capabilities of The Economist Group—from films to events, research, thought-leadership, advertising and marketing.
