Who are we?

The South China Morning Post is a leading news media company that has reported on China and Asia for more than a century with global impact. Founded in 1903, SCMP is headquartered in Hong Kong, where it is the city’s newspaper of record, with a growing correspondent staff across Asia and the United States. Our vision is to “Elevate Thought”, and our mission is to “Lead the global conversation about China”. In 2020, SCMP became the first news organisation in Asia to join the Trust Project, a consortium of top news companies developing global transparency standards for credible journalism.

What do we do?

The South China Morning Post is a global digital news leader with a unique role in championing the plurality of voices in Asia through its breadth and depth of news coverage. SCMP is committed to informing and inspiring through journalism of the highest standards. Apart from its flagship newspaper, SCMP also publishes news 24/7 on SCMP.com. Additionally, SCMP publishes a portfolio of premium lifestyle and fashion titles in Hong Kong including Cosmopolitan, ELLE, Esquire and, Harper’s BAZAAR. SCMP is also home to Abacus, a digital news brand focused on China’s tech industry; Inkstone, a daily news brief for those curious about China’s growing impact around the world; and Goldthread, a content platform with a focus on food, travel and culture in China.

Who should join us?

You should join us because you’re looking for more than just a job. Because making a positive impact and contributing to something bigger than yourself keeps you engaged, focused, and most importantly, helps you realise your full potential.

You’re passionate about work, and also curious about experimenting and breaking the mould. You believe that sharing knowledge is more conducive than withholding it. You can operate independently with speed and productivity, but you never forget that collective success is most important.

What appeals to you most is a workplace culture, like ours, that encourages learning and ingenuity, and values both ownership and teamwork. At SCMP, you will find career growth that is supported by the encouragement of company leaders, established development programmes, an exciting environment, attractive remuneration and benefits, as well as a dynamic organisational structure.

As SCMP grows, we seek and nurture talents who are future-focused, inquisitive and open-minded, who will come on board to help us bring SCMP to the next level of growth.
