We are committed to accurate, authentic journalism.
Global Press is expanding its On-Call Talent Network (OCTN) to support our global team of reporters and editors in producing high-quality, accurate, ethical and locally-sourced news. The OCTN consists of copy editors, fact checkers, translators and multimedia experts.
We’re hiring accuracy professionals around the world!
Members of the Global Press OCTN are paid per piece and are typically given 24-48 hour deadlines. OCTN members specify the amount of work they are looking for, and work closely with Global Press’ assignment editor, lead editors and reporters during the editorial process. All OCTN work can be done remotely. OCTN members based in Washington D.C. or a Global Press bureau location are welcome (and encouraged!) to work with the local team.
