    The Island Packet and The Beaufort Gazette, which serve Hilton Head Island, Beaufort and Bluffton, S.C., need a sports copy editor/page designer. We're interested in candidates who can creatively design pages, aggressively edit copy, spot holes and inconsistencies in stories, write headlines that are clear and crisp, maintain accuracy on deadline and handle online and digital duties.

    Knowledge of InDesign and Photoshop is required.

    The Packet and Gazette, whose combined circulation is about 35,000, are well-respected dailies owned by The McClatchy Company. The sports department is a consistent award winner in regional and national newspaper competitions. For more information about the Packet and Gazette and the communities they serve, visit islandpacket.com and beaufortgazette.com.

    Please e-mail a one-page cover letter and a one-page resume to Mike McCombs, sports editor, at mmccombs@islandpacket.com.

    Initially, send only the cover letter and resume. The resume should include professional and academic highlights, dates of graduation and job changes/promotions, scholarships and awards and names and telephone numbers of references. The letter and resume will be key in determining whether to proceed with an application.

    Please do not send work samples as attachments with your e-mail. After reviewing your resume, we may then ask for page samples.

    The Packet serves Hilton Head Island, Bluffton and other communities on the mainland of southern Beaufort County. The Packet's sister paper, The Beaufort Gazette, serves the county seat, located north of Hilton Head, and other communities in northern Beaufort County. The papers are located in South Carolina's Lowcountry, a robustly growing area between Charleston and Savannah with beautiful natural surroundings, a rich history and a diverse culture. Both papers are consistent award winners in state and regional newspaper competitions.

    McClatchy is the nation's third largest newspaper group. It has high journalistic standards and embraces an array of new strategies for serving online readers. Other McClatchy papers include The Miami Herald, The Sacramento Bee, The (Fort Worth) Star-Telegram, The Kansas City Star, The Charlotte Observer and The (Raleigh) News & Observer.

    We offer a competitive pay and benefits package.
