Community Engagement Reporter:
This person would tell stories from points of view of populations who are not well represented in traditional/historic media. We want stories about underserved populations, but also, and more importantly, telling all stories with context from these communities.

This beat will take readers inside the lives and homes of people living in the Wilmington, Dover and nearby areas, especially those neighborhoods that have long been ignored or seen largely in coverage of negative issues - helping to explain the nuance of what community means for those who call these places home. This includes what it means to live in the Census tract labeled the most violent in Delaware's largest city or what it feels like to live in an area with the state's highest rates of pollution.

The stories and issues will come from the people living in these communities - a result of engaging with the community, and thus, the name of this beat. Night and weekend work is involved.

We are eager to learn more about you and how you fit this role. When you apply, don't limit your upload to a resume; show us what you've done. To do so, put together a single document file that includes the following:

• Your resume - one to two pages

• A cover letter that outlines how you would approach the job

• Links to 3-6 online samples of your work. Show us what you've written, produced, or had a hand in that best reflects what you can do in your desired role.

It is important that these items be assembled into a single document and uploaded in PDF format. Completing these steps will ensure that your application receives the highest consideration.

Gannett Co., Inc. is a proud equal opportunity employer. We are a drug free, EEO employer committed to a diverse workforce. We will consider all qualified candidates regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity, family responsibilities, disability, education, political affiliation, or veteran status.
