Position Open: Associate News Editor, Moscow Times – Amsterdam

The Moscow Times is seeking a highly motivated Associate News Editor to play a key role in its daily reporting of events in Russia.

You will join a dynamic team that produces fair, balanced and accurate journalism as it becomes increasingly difficult to obtain reliable information from inside Russia. Working closely alongside MT reporters and editors, you will be closely involved in daily news coverage, manage partnerships with other independent media outlets, and assist in raising MT’s profile and online presence, including via social media.

There will also be opportunities for independent reporting, as well as working on other products — for example podcasts and newsletters.

This is an early-career editing position and you will report to the Senior Editor, News and Opinion Editor and Editor-in-Chief.

You should be highly motivated, have excellent communication skills and thrive in a small, fast-paced newsroom environment.


  • A broad understanding of Russian current affairs
  • Ability to work to deadlines
  • Native English and excellent Russian


  • Journalism and editing experience

This position is full-time and requires occasional evening and weekend work. It will be based in Amsterdam (work permit support provided), although may initially be remote.

Please send your CV and cover letter to: applications@themoscowtimes.com (subject line “News Editor”) by Friday, Jan. 27.
