Honolulu Civil Beat, a nonprofit public affairs and investigative news site, is looking for a reporter with a strong track record for turning out high-end enterprise and watchdog stories to cover public safety issues in Hawaii.
This is one of our premier beats. Civil Beat has won multiple awards for its in-depth coverage of police accountability and corruption, prisons, courts and other legal affairs. Though there will be some breaking news to report, the beat is focused on enterprise rather than daily cops and courts reporting. We're particularly interested in exploring police practices and policies with an eye toward solutions, as well as human interest stories that illuminate public safety from the perspectives of citizens, victims and the police.
We're looking for a reporter with a minimum of 5 years experience who can combine strong digging and data skills, source building and compelling storytelling. Knowledge of Hawaii, the most diverse state in the U.S., a digital mindset and multimedia skills are definite pluses.
Our newsroom is very collaborative. The reporter can expect at times to lead or pitch in on reporting projects about topics other than the criminal justice system.
This is a full-time position with an anticipated minimum salary of $70,000 that includes the following:
Medical, dental and vision insurance
30 days paid time off each year
Company-funded training opportunities
The salary for this position is commensurate with experience and qualifications.
Civil Beat seeks to build a newsroom that reflects the diversity and lived experiences of people in Hawaii. We encourage people from all communities, especially those underrepresented in journalism, to apply.
If you'd like to join Civil Beat in helping to make a difference in Hawaii, email a resume, 3-5 clips and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please apply ASAP -- applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
Honolulu Civil Beat is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt news organization dedicated to cultivating an informed body of citizens, all striving to make Hawaii a better place to live. We achieve this through investigative and watchdog journalism, in-depth enterprise reporting, analysis and commentary that gives readers a broad view on issues of importance to our community. We are members of the Institute for Nonprofits News, a coalition of more than 300 nonprofit newsrooms across the U.S.
Our goal is to challenge our leaders to do better. We are the watchdogs of the public's trust and we take seriously the mission to educate our citizens on important public issues. Our long-term goal is to produce journalism with a purpose, to stimulate positive change. We do not align with political or special interest groups and adhere to the strictest journalistic standards and ethics. We believe news is a public asset and that Civil Beat can and should be a good community partner, not just an arms-length observer recounting news of the day. We have a stake in our community as much as it has a stake in us.
