Journalism is in urgent need of repair. Its preoccupation with dysfunction, corruption and pathology undermines public discourse, inhibits citizenship, and fails to provide society with key information to self-govern and self-correct.

The Solutions Journalism Network is leading a practice change to confront this failure, building capacity for reporting about responses to social problems. Weโ€™ve worked with over 10,000 journalists and 200 news organizations to cover society more comprehensively, revealing possibilities for civic agency and connection.

SJNโ€™s Practice Change team operates at the core of this mission. It introduces offers resources and activities that catalyze the adoption of solutions reporting and hosts a network of learning and sharing geared to rapidly spread this professional shift. Our relationships with diverse newsrooms and individual journalists yield many hundreds of reporting projects a year.

That means a lot of moving parts. The Operations Associate will track and support these activities, ensuring effective coordination and communication both among the Practice Change team and between the team and its expanding universe of journalism constituents.

Areas of Responsibility: 

- Coordinate the centralized tracking of key activities and deliverables across the team
- Support the tracking of newsroom and journalist relationships
- Support newsroom and journalist projects, including processing formal agreements; and tracking deliverables and reporting deadlines.
- Coordinate with SJNโ€™s development function to meet grant reporting requirements
- Work with team members and SJNโ€™s data analysis director to ensure integrity and coherence of our data
- Support logistics planning for certain SJN events
- Direct internal team communications, ensuring that our colleagues โ€“ half of whom are based outside NYC โ€“ feel connected.


- Strong entrepreneurial aptitude: The operations associate wonโ€™t be content to just do tasks as directed. This person will be geared to look out for problems โ€“ and then solve them.
- Passionate attention to detail. There are a lot of details in this role.
- Collaborative disposition: This person should get energy from working with others.
- Outstanding communications, including impeccable spelling and grammar. Remember, weโ€™re journalists โ€“ and weโ€™re serving journalists.
- Facility with Salesforce or comparable relationship management system; Asana; and Dropbox โ€“ or an eagerness to learn.
- A passion for journalistic excellence and the role of journalism in society


Competitive salary (commensurate with experience) with health benefits; generous paid time-off and work-schedule flexibility
