Recharge, the global energy transition news and analysis platform, seeks a standout journalist to join our international team to help develop our digital-first and magazine coverage of the rapidly expanding global hydrogen sector.

As the world races to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, hydrogen is being touted as the zero-carbon Swiss Army knife of the energy transition, capable of replacing fossil fuels in transport, heating, industry, power generation and more.

But the issue is highly controversial, with some regarding it as the key to defeating climate change, and others seeing it as little more than a scam being perpetrated by oil and gas companies and other "useful idiots". Yet governments worldwide are investing billions of dollars in building up new hydrogen economies.

Recharge is expanding its world-leading hydrogen coverage and is looking for a sharp, inquisitive and self-driven reporter to help our team make sense of this complex and rapidly developing sector.
