Global Press Accuracy Network

Global Press is expanding it’s On-Call Talent Network (OCTN) to support our team of reporters and editors to produce high-quality, accurate, ethical and locally-sourced news. Our team of OCTN consist of copy editors, fact checkers, translators, and multimedia experts.

Freelancers in the Global Press’ OCTN are paid by the article and are typically given 24-48 hours turnaround time. Freelancers specify the amount of work they are looking for, and work closely with Global Press’ assignment editor, lead editors and reporters throughout the editorial process. All OCTN work can be done remotely.

Global Press is a diverse and thriving international media organization that seeks out team members who:

  • Are equally committed to journalistic tradition and journalistic innovation
  • Employ discipline, generosity and humor in their daily work
  • Are willing to challenge the 24-hour news cycle and stereotypical definitions of international news value
  • Believe in the power of local women journalists to write and report undiscovered, high-quality human stories to change our world
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment where team members can be honest with one another and always aim to be better than they were yesterday
