In-house Journalist Position – Toronto

In-house Journalist – Social Capital Partners 

Social Capital Partners in Toronto, ON, is hiring an In-house Journalist. scp-logo

Social Capital Partners is looking for a mid-career freelance journalist who can work in-house (with salaried pay and benefits!) to help our small organization craft an impactful
narrative from our big, innovative and sometimes off-beat ideas.

Working three to four days per week, the ideal candidate would be nimble in voice and
production capacity – and able to write in both short and long form. Central tasks would
involve creating compelling stories, op-eds, blogs, articles and policy-related position
papers for publication both through our channels and through partners.

Founded in 2001 by entrepreneur and philanthropist Bill Young, Social Capital Partners
tackles social problems by developing creative and high-risk solutions in the arenas of the future of work, impact investing, community businesses, social finance and demand-led social hiring. And then we try to make them real.

While the topics we tackle are serious, we don’t want our writing to be overly so. We
know that achieving results and influencing a broad group of people will require some
levity. While we want an experienced writer with proven research skills to join our staff – bonus points if you have a background or interest in economic and public policy issues – our ideal candidate has a fun and accessible voice (read: we see quirky and cheeky as a
good thing!).

We bet you’d also like to get paid. We’d like that too. The salary on offer for five days
per week is in the range of $45K-65K, commensurate with experience. We offer paid
vacation as well as family medical and dental insurance. And since we know the hustle is
real in the freelance world, we are prepared to allow you to pursue other freelance
opportunities on non-office time.
