- Drive and coordinate the coverage of Economy and Government across North Asia, including China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
- Be a thoughtful and dedicated leader determined to elevate our coverage across the region
- Work seamlessly with Team leaders across the beat to prioritize, plan and coordinate coverage priorities and editing resources
- Spot gaps and deliver innovative ways to improve our content and publish insightful stories
