AFP hiring fact-check reporter in Thailand

AFP is seeking a fact check reporter with strong digital investigation and precise writing skills to join its Bangkok bureau to report on disinformation in Thailand.

The role is an exciting opportunity to be a part of AFP's fast-growing fact-checking network, which has seen it take a leading role in the global fight against fake news.

The successful applicant will be required to write fact check reports in English and Thai about disinformation across Southeast Asia. The position requires an agile journalist who can easily navigate online disinformation, whether that be on major social media platforms such as Facebook, discussion boards or encrypted chat apps. As such, the applicant must demonstrate an expertise in digital verification techniques and tools, as well as being able to easily detect fake news.

The role also requires an ability to work in a fast-paced multimedia newsroom and meet tight deadlines. While the reporter will specialise in fact-checking, duties will also extend to other reporting roles in the bureau depending on the demands of the daily news coverage. Other media skills -- including in photography, video and graphics -- would also be valuable.

Candidates must have excellent English and be fluent in Thai, while other regional languages would be an asset. The role will start in September.

Please apply to recruitment.hkg@afp.com with a CV and a covering letter of less than 400 words explaining why you are interested in the job and suitable for it.
