Working at News Decoder

News Decoder is a global educational news service for young people powered by a team of journalists, educators and nonprofit professionals based around the world.

We’re a registered nonprofit headquartered in Paris, France, but we operate a virtual workplace. Our current team members work remotely from France, Ireland, Latvia and the UK, while our correspondents report from more than a dozen countries worldwide. Whenever possible, we collaborate in person at co-working office spaces in Paris.

Current Opportunities

English as a Foreign Language Consultant

News Decoder seeks to engage a part-time English as a Foreign Language consultant to provide proofreading and language standardisation guidance for an English-medium media literacy tool adapted from Swedish. 

The tool is the key element of the “Promoting Media Literacy and Citizen Journalism through Mobile Stories” (ProMS) project, co-funded by the European Commission Creative Europe Programme.

The online teaching tool is aimed at an international high school-level audience with CEFR B2 English ability and above. The purpose of this consultancy is to ensure all multimedia components of the tool are suitable for use by students who have attained this language level.

The project involves an estimated 36-40 hours of work spread across several months in 2024. Download the complete details here:

Write for News Decoder

Are you interested in helping young people better understand the big news issues of our times? Do you have experience decoding complex topics for an international audience? Consider joining News Decoder’s roster of correspondents.

Our target audience is young people and educators around the world. Youth see headlines all the time on their devices and they know that some events are more important than others — but they don’t always understand why. Educators look for informative, accessible and relevant articles they can use in their classrooms. News Decoder correspondents provide the kind of explanatory journalism that offers the background often missing in mainstream news outlets. 

We strongly encourage the youth we work with to tap authoritative sources when producing work for us, and expect the same of our correspondents. News Decoder only publishes original material not previously published elsewhere.
