The Guardian has today announced it is recruiting several new editorial positions, including dedicated correspondents for the Caribbean, South America and Africa, and reporter roles in the UK and the US specialising in race, equity, community affairs, health and inequality.

The seven new roles aim to boost the scope and ambition of the Guardian’s coverage of underrepresented regions and communities, and come in response to research which found links between the founders of the Manchester Guardian and historical transatlantic slavery.

Type: Job
