DeSmog is hiring, CIJ is doing courses and promoting bursaries, we spoke to Data Content Reach about Digital Strategy + BIJ is shifting up gears in its People’s Newsroom work

DeSmog is hiring!

As you may already know, DeSmog UK is growing, and fast! Our small but mighty team is hiring for two critical senior roles: a Deputy Editor and a Finance and Operations Manager. And I wondered if you could help us to reach brilliant candidates by spreading the word and promoting the ads through your networks, please.

The first post will be to replace our longtime colleague Rich Collet-White who is leaving us - for a master's - but luckily will stay connected in an associate editor capacity. The second is essential to building our internal infrastructure so we can safely expand with the right policies, support and safeguards in place.

If you're up for sharing among your networks, above are the links to the jobs on our site, and below are the links to the job ads on Twitter and LinkedIn.

CIJ Lyra McKee Trainees Pitch to the Editors

Eight CIJ Lyra McKee trainees pitched their stories to investigative editors from the UK's leading investigative media.

Pitching investigative stories to working editors is the climax of the CIJ Lyra McKee bursary scheme. After months of training, mentoring and working on their stories, the trainees had a chance to meet the editors, pitch their stories to them and hear their feedback.

Basia Cummings (Editor, Tortoise Studios), Emily Wilson (Editor, The Bureau Local) and Ramzy Alwakeel (Head of News, openDemocracy) shared their knowledge and expertise: from how to find more sources and where to search for additional information, to how to structure and write investigations.

CIJ Lyra McKee mentors Emma Youle (formerly of HuffPost UK) and Jenna Corderoy (openDemocracy) have guided the trainees through this year's programme, helping them find and shape their investigations.

Applications for the 2023 CIJ Lyra McKee Investigative Journalism Training and Mentoring Bursary Scheme will open in January 2023. Watch this space!
