editorial vacancies

We are recruiting a full-time researcher for our Hong Kong bureau.

Previous experience in print and broadcast journalism will be beneficial and attention to detail is a must. You will be responsible for carrying out detailed research and conducting interviews for print and radio stories, as well as writing and recording your own pieces from Hong Kong and around the region.

The ideal candidate will have a curious mind and a way with words, and be able to demonstrate an interest in some or all of Monocle’s magazine sections (current affairs, business, culture, design, hospitality and fashion). Fluency in English and Mandarin is essential; Cantonese is also preferred.

To apply for this position, please send a CV and covering letter to Monocle’s Hong Kong bureau chief, James Chambers.

We are looking for a bureau chief to run our outpost in Culver City, working across our print, radio and online output. You will have several years' experience as a journalist, an understanding of the Monocle brand and a good knowledge of the region. You will also be as comfortable interviewing a PM as writing about restaurants and media. Spanish language skills are a distinct advantage, as is broadcast experience.

The role is based in Los Angeles but you will need to travel throughout North and South America, and the work will not follow regular hours. This is a job for somebody who has great contacts and fresh ideas, and wants to be part of a fast-growing company. It is a role that is as demanding as it is rewarding.

To apply for this position, please send a CV and covering letter to Monocle’s managing editor Tom Reynolds.
