    Nairobi Bureau Chief

    Job description

    Our Nairobi bureau chief has a tremendous opportunity to dive into news and enterprise across a wide range of countries, from the deserts of Sudan and the pirate seas of the Horn of Africa, down through the forests of Congo and the shores of Tanzania. It is an enormous patch of vibrant, intense and strategically important territory with many vital story lines, including terrorism, the scramble for resources, the global contest with China and the constant push-and-pull of democracy versus authoritarianism.

    The ideal candidate should enjoy jumping on news, be willing to cover conflict, and also be drawn to investigative stories. There is also the chance to delight our readers with unexpected stories of hope and the changing rhythms of life in a rapidly evolving region.

    The ideal candidate will have some of these qualities:

    • Broad international reporting experience, preferably for a global news organization.
    • A keen eye for news and other great stories, borne of experience reporting, writing or otherwise creating stories as well as assigning, shaping and editing them.
    • A commitment to understanding the needs and behaviors of our audience, including who and what we’re competing with for their time and attention, and familiarity with the toolkit for reaching audiences with our journalism.
    • Commitment to The New York Times’s strategy, standards and mission.

    The role requires energy, passion and talent for what is a critical assignment for The Times.
