Editor in Chief
I’m Jason Cowley and I’m the Editor of New Statesman.
The New Statesman is the leading progressive political and cultural magazine and website in the United Kingdom. Established as a weekly review of politics and literature in 1913, The New Statesman is celebrated for its progressive and liberal politics and the quality of its journalism and analysis. We especially value independence of thought, scepticism, criticism, and a willingness to debate.
This is an exciting new era for the The New Statesman, one of ambitious expansion as we invest in our coverage of international affairs and publish across multiple platforms: print, digital, newsletter, podcasts, special supplements. Whether you are a writer, editor, sub-editor, technologist, designer, broadcaster, sales and marketing specialist or data scientist, we welcome a diverse range of experience and skills. Come and join our team, be a force for progressive change, and help us explain the big political, economic, cultural, and technological forces driving change in the world today.
Making NSMG a place where people are proud to work is an essential element of our success and it's my role to help create the culture, opportunities, communications and policies that ensures we get the best from everyone. One of the things I really enjoy about working here is that we are a very diverse and talented team, which is important to us as we move forward.
We are committed to building a work environment where everyone feels engaged. This is driven by many things including the work we do, our benefits, our colleagues, personal development, feedback from our manager and our purpose. We want people to feel happy, inspired and empowered to work here, energised to go the extra mile, love their job and be committed to stay with us!
