Managing Editor
Beirut, Lebanon

About Us: 

Triangle works to transform detailed, and often dense information into a compelling message that is visually appealing, generates maximum impact, and bridges the divide between policy-making, research, and the media. In doing so, we produce lasting results and positive impacts for the organisations we work with, and the communities we work in.

As a growing organization, we are looking for highly motivated individuals who bring their expertise, ambition, and innovative ideas to complement our mission. We work in a multilingual, highly collaborative environment, with staff distributed over multiple time zones and countries. As such, we seek colleagues who can manage projects independently and deliver exceptional results. In return, we offer unusual autonomy and opportunities for growth. If this sounds like the team you’ve been looking for, we would love to hear from you.

Position Summary:  Triangle is now looking for a person with exceptional editing, writing, and management skills to become the Managing Editor of Triangle.

The Managing Editor is responsible for the timely production of written and visual content that engages readers with clear and strong policy messages affecting the West Asia and North Africa region. Based on an agreed weekly schedule, the Managing Editor will liaise with Triangle’s policy, graphics, media monitoring, and translation departments to ensure that all deliverables meet Triangle’s required level of rigour.

The Managing Editor is required to guide and support internal and external content contributors from ideation to implementation and publishing. This requires that the Managing Editor help other staff members identify viable research topics and generate a plan for collecting data, as well as analyzing and publishing its content. At times, the role will require that the Managing Editor personally contribute to content editing and writing, as well as data collection.

The Managing Editor will report to Triangle’s Directors and work directly with clients and donors.
