This deputy would work alongside the other leaders of the visuals team on many aspects of management including data visualization editing, mentoring, scheduling and long-range planning.

The ideal candidate:

  • Has 5-10 years of experience in news visuals with a demonstrated ability to report, create and edit data visualizations.
  • Is meticulous, technical, organized and creative in a fast-paced, high-volume environment.
  • Is a team player who is a creative, flexible thinker and a problem solver.
  • Has great communication skills. Comfortable representing the work of the visuals team to top newsroom editors and reporters, in addition to being able to give and receive feedback within the visuals team.
