The Salt Lake Tribune — Utah’s largest daily newspaper — is looking for a copy desk chief with a keen news sense, proven word smarts, sharp design skills and wise management attributes.
Job duties include, but are not limited to, editing for grammar, spelling, clarity, accuracy, AP style and house style; writing enticing headlines and other display text; designing print pages in InDesign; editing late-breaking news; and scheduling, steering, training, leading and inspiring a team of copy editors.
This position would include work at night and weekends. Some website management and social media posting would also be required.
The best candidate would be a strong copy editor who keeps cool under pressure; who has strong news judgment; who has earned a bachelor's degree; who has management experience; and who has worked for two years at a professional news organization. Equivalent experience may be considered. Basic design and web specialties can be taught for this position, but copy editing know-how is essential.
To apply, email a cover letter and a resume to David Noyce at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include design, headline and any writing samples.
