Successful candidates should have a deep understanding of layout, typography and design with a portfolio that showcases their talents. Candidates should have a demonstrated track record of leading teams and coaching and mentoring designers. An ability to juggle multiple projects and manage a large and diverse workload in a fast-paced and deadline-driven environment is critical. You’ll be overseeing print design for a number of 24/7/365 news organizations that produce an array of features, news and sports sections, so strong organization and critical thinking skills are a must. The perfect candidate will lead a staff of 24 designers, so a few years of prior experience as a newsroom manager or design team leader is a must.
