It’s a new year, and Berkeleyside is looking forward to seeing some new faces around the office after we recruit people for three exciting new openings in the newsroom. One is a full-time job — and a brand new position. We are also looking for two interns.
Berkeleyside is an equal opportunity employer — people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply for these positions. We are committed to a diverse workplace, and to supporting our staff with ongoing career development opportunities, including in-house mentoring and external training.
Full details of these opportunities to join the small, dynamic Berkeleyside team can be found at our Jobs at Berkeleyside page.
This is an exciting new position. The Membership Director will be the point person for Berkeleyside’s significant community of readers and, in particular, our members and investors. The job, which requires both marketing and preferably events experience, offers the opportunity to work on the front lines of a new phase of journalism: that of community engagement and reader-supported reporting, where news media work to earn and maintain public trust. Berkeleyside has a large, engaged community of readers and we believe the future of our organization lies in that community. See details.
