VACANCY: News reporter
10 July, 2017
THE Camden New Journal, alongside its sister titles the Islington Tribune and Westminster Extra, is looking to recruit two full-time news journalists.
We have a reporting position coming up on the Camden New Journal and a vacancy on the Westminster Extra, our newspaper covering the borough of Westminster. Applicants would preferably have a working knowledge of our readership areas, a good appreciation of current affairs, online skills and a strong news sense.
We are looking for a reporter who is able to cover a wide range of events, who has good off-diary story ideas and a clean, precise writing style. We would welcome applications from candidates with an appreciation of the newspaper’s independent set-up, campaigning history and link with the community.
The positions will be based at our offices in Camden Town with some evening and occasional weekend work. We are looking for a reporter who thrives on talking to people and making new contacts, rather than relying on re-writing wire copy. While awareness of social media is important, we want reporters who work with it, rather than being slaves to it.
We are looking to fill these position as soon as possible, so no application deadline applies – although we appreciate some candidates will need to work out notice periods if successful.
If interested, please send CV, covering letter and examples of past work to Richard Osley at firstname.lastname@example.org at first available opportunity.Mark emails ‘reporter vacancy’ in the subject field.
