Climate is a story that touches all of CNN's audiences and all of our journalistic beats: international and national news, politics, business, health and wellness, travel, science and beyond.
This writer will anchor our national coverage of climate, collaborating with reporters across CNN's digital teams as well as domestic and international newsgathering to break news and cover the stories and conversations about one of the most important issues of our time.
The mission will be to create distinctive work that emphasizes the best of CNN's DNA: Urgency. Essential, global ''Go There'' reporting. Facts backed by data and science. Journalism that holds power to account. Stories that connect dots and explain consequences.
You will join a team comprised of an editor and beat leader, a Washington reporter, an international editor and a data visuals editor. You will collaborate on, report and write daily stories, breaking news, long-term and evergreen projects, and possible newsletters or podcasts or other initiatives to come. Top-notch writing skills, the ability to execute quickly and cleanly, and the expertise to elevate storytelling will be key.
You should come with experience working the climate beat, a passion for the topic, and an eye for angles that make stories both essential and engaging reads. A strong background in science writing is encouraged. We're looking for someone who can shift seamlessly among different types of writing – breaking news, explanatory, analysis and enterprise – as well as embracing new forms of storytelling and innovative ways of interacting with our audiences.
The rhythm of your days will vary. Some will be fast-paced and require juggling multiple breaking stories with first versions and reflows that heighten framing and context, while also thinking ahead to possible analysis and follow-up angles. Other days may center on writing or partnering on a deep-dive piece of enterprise, making the story shine and working with your editor and other teams to cover every aspect of storytelling in both the production and distribution of our content. On all days, our commitment to clear and accurate storytelling remains our top priority.
You should be knowledgeable about how to shape pitches and execute assignments, enjoy the energy and stimulation that comes from working as part of a team, and have a proven track record of successful collaboration in a matrixed organization.
