HOW TO APPLY

To apply, use this form to send a cover letter and resume describing how your experience equips you for this position.

The Marshall Project is seeking to expand its award-winning accountability criminal justice journalism to communities across the country where local news resources to cover this urgent issue are being slashed or eliminated. Criminal justice is overwhelmingly a local matter. Police departments, courts, judges, district attorneys and other arms of the justice system are run by people elected locally, and laws regulating them are passed by state and local governments. To examine whether these institutions are serving the public fairly, communities need journalists equipped with the reporting, editing, data, visual and community outreach resources to investigate abuses and communicate with a wide range of people whose fates depend on how the justice system is run.

Cleveland will house our first non-profit journalism team, staffed by local reporters who know their community better than anyone. Our national team will provide editorial and operational support. We will work in partnership, not competition, with local journalists and existing news outlets.

We aim to produce journalism that is written for, and accountable to, the communities in which the teams are based. We will write for people with power to implement changes when abuses are exposed, and for those who have felt powerless. We intend to expand our sources and readers to make sure we are talking to people who often feel excluded or caricatured by the news media -- while maintaining our commitment to fact-based reporting. Investigative, data and engagement journalism will be central to our model.

We will also explore alternative ways of telling stories so we make sure our journalism reaches those who might face literacy challenges or who haven’t traditionally received their information from written news outlets.


Responsibilities:

The editor-in-chief will set journalistic priorities, investigative targets and engagement projects; recruit, edit and oversee a diverse reporting team; and uphold rigorous journalistic standards of fairness and accuracy. To start out, we anticipate a news team of three reporters. The editor-in-chief reports to The Marshall Project’s managing editor, local.

Oversee the team’s engagement journalism and audience efforts, in collaboration with Marshall Project’s national director for audience development and the Cleveland outreach manager. This might include community outreach, live events, newsletters and a range of innovative ways to distribute our journalism and make sure it reaches a wide readership, including people behind bars and their families.

Actively seek out community input in Cleveland and the county; cultivate an ongoing dialogue with a range of local stakeholders, from criminal justice officials to those affected directly by the criminal justice system.

Oversee local partnerships in tandem with our national partnership team.

Coordinate with The Marshall Project’s centrally-based teams, including data, photography and illustrations, audience, design, production, partnership, technology, development and HR.


Requirements:

We are looking for an experienced, innovative news leader with a track record of producing ambitious journalism with impact and fostering workplaces that are fair, humane, and inclusive. You need a collaborative spirit, resourcefulness, willingness to wear many hats, and openness to experimentation.

We do not expect every candidate to be equally skilled in all the areas below, and this is not a complete list of all relevant qualifications applicants might bring to the job. Please tell us about your other assets  not mentioned here that may be valuable to this role. Reaching talent across a range of backgrounds and experiences is deeply important to us. If you do not meet all the criteria but are still interested in this role and/or in The Marshall Project, we’d love to hear from you.

10 years’ experience or more leading news coverage, managing journalists and meeting the news needs of local communities. Familiarity with criminal justice issues and key institutions and stakeholders in the Cleveland area.

Experience in conceiving and editing investigative projects would be ideal. Experience in working with data teams and data projects would be helpful, though data support will be provided by The Marshall Project’s central data team.

Experience with, or interest in, engagement journalism -- reimagining storytelling forms, distribution platforms, and information needs of readers so that our journalism reaches a wide range of people, including those behind bars or justice-affected communities who seldom see news that could affect their own lives or reflects their lived experiences.

You must live in the Cleveland/Cuyahoga county area.


Compensation & Benefits:

his job is full-time, with a competitive salary and benefits including employer-paid medical, vision, and dental insurance; 17 days of paid time off each year, plus a week off at the end of December; paid family leave; and 401(k) matching.

The Marshall Project is a nonprofit news organization covering America’s criminal justice system. Our newsroom was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2016 and 2021, and has won most of the country’s top awards for journalism. We maintain a rigorous independence from the world of advocacy, but our work has a measurable impact on criminal justice, rendering the system more fair, effective, transparent and humane.

The business model for journalism, and for investigative journalism in particular, faces huge challenges. The Marshall Project has been successful in building philanthropic support for a news organization focused on a single, urgent issue of social justice. We draw support from communities who care about criminal justice, as well as communities who care about the survival of independent media and therefore, of democracy itself.

Having nearly tripled in size in six years, The Marshall Project has ambitious plans to grow further. We have announced the first of what we hope will be a series of local news operations focused on criminal justice in communities where the resources for investigative journalism have dramatically dwindled. Our national newsroom will also grow, both to build upon the journalism we are already producing, and to support local news operations with our considerable experience and expertise -- including in fundraising.

We seek a Chief Development Officer who is ambitious, experienced, and creative. The position will report to the President and be responsible for guiding the growth and expansion of our funding, of our fundraising team, and of our overall capacities to make The Marshall Project second to none in the quality of its output and impact of its journalism. This is a job for a pioneer.

The position will also work closely with our Chief Strategy Officer in operationalizing our expansion into local news, finding partners to help build financial support for new criminal justice newsrooms where none has been before. They will collaborate frequently with our Chief Financial Officer to build budgets that are both ambitious and realistic, and ensure the smooth financial operations of The Marshall Project overall. They will work with and help find new members for our excellent Board of Directors, devising new advisory boards and committees of support where appropriate. They will build a fundraising team that is both local and national, managing the excellent staff already in place and designing a strategy for the expansion of the team. They will collaborate with newsroom leadership while respecting the division of business and editorial sides of the house that safeguard our journalistic integrity.


Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Guide, direct, and participate in all fundraising efforts, including major gifts, all individual giving, foundation support, and a burgeoning membership program.
  • Maintain relationships with top donors and prospects.
  • Oversee the management of day-to-day operations of the Development Department, including all giving mechanisms, tools, and databases.
  • Work in coordination with the CFO to set annual budgets and fundraising goals.
  • Ensure that all deadlines are met, acknowledgements are sent and potential supporters are engaged.
  • Build a growth plan for foundation support and work with a team to draft or edit top-level grant proposals and reports.
  • Work with the President to plan board meetings, work with select board committees, build strategy and execute board development activities, and deepen board members' engagement in our mission.
  • Devise and execute on a strategy to secure financial support in cities and regions where The Marshall Project seeks to establish a news operation; develop the language and approach to attract philanthropic support for journalism in places where that may never have been done before.
  • Collaborate with others in the nonprofit media world to share experiences and learning among a hardy but dynamic cohort of independent journalism organizations.


Qualifications

We seek candidates with at least 10 years' experience in development and fundraising, including experience managing and supporting teams, especially if geographically dispersed.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record of identifying, personally soliciting and landing major gifts, including in the six- and seven-figure categories. They should be familiar with the operations of a nonprofit board and able to engage and persuade our closest supporters in our mission.

Candidates should have at least a B.A. degree, and some familiarity with basic tools and software commonly used in the fundraising business.  Knowledge of and experience with Salesforce as a fundraising tool is strongly preferred.
