The Wall Street Journal is looking for an experienced editor to join our Standards and Ethics department.
You should have a demonstrated expertise and insight in setting and maintaining reporting and style standards. As a member of the Standards and Ethics team, you will be responsible for ensuring the Journal always maintains the highest and most rigorous standards of fairness and integrity and is a model for ethical, fact-based news reporting.
The Standards and Ethics team is an integral part of the Journal newsroom, acting as the collective conscience of its members, and a central reason we have been so trusted by readers for more than 130 years.
You will be versed in, and a strong advocate for, these standards and ethics. You will have more than a decade of journalistic experience, allowing you to act as an arbiter, and champion, of our journalism. You will be a final reader on our most impactful journalism; ensure our work and staff remain untainted by conflicts of interest, real or perceived; and act as an adjudicator of disputes.
