The initial listing for a deputy editor for the magazine’s vertical on inequality includes a note reading “This is a part-time role, requiring 29.5 hours per week, and does not include benefits."

The listing was met with sharp criticism online, including from the magazine’s editorial union.

Following the criticism, Lehmann confirmed that going forward, the job now included benefits and that all other permanent part-time jobs would as well.
