Job Description

NARRATIVE WRITER

The Sacramento Bee is hiring an accomplished writer and reporter whose work will appear across our digital platforms and be featured on the covers of our reimagined print product. We’re looking for a journalist who can toggle between pitching and writing deeply-reported magazine-style pieces that help set the agenda in Sacramento and reporting and writing quick-turn narratives during big breaking news events. 

Expertise in a particular subject area is not required, but the successful candidate will have a clear understanding of what’s important to local readers, preferably earned by working as a beat reporter at a local news outlet. This journalist will bring a multi-platform mindset to each assignment,  delivering must-read stories that help connect our print readers to our dynamic eEdition, apps and website. Experience on a rewrite desk is also a plus.

Education: College degree preferred.

Experience: At least 5 years of reporting experience, preferably on local issues.

Skills needed:

  • A fresh writing style, with an engaging, sharp and conversational voice.

  • Ability to build source networks and bring a constant flow of story ideas.

  • Ability to work collaboratively to aggressively tackle stories.

  • Comfort with a job that will be demanding, fast-paced and constantly evolving.
