We are looking for a Crime Correspondent to provide top-quality coverage of this important subject.
The successful candidate will have responsibility for coverage of crime for the East Anglian Daily Times, Ipswich Star, our weekly titles, and our websites.
- have a formal journalistic qualification to NCE/NVQ level 4 standard or equivalent
- have two years’ experience on a daily or paid-for weekly newspaper
- be able to demonstrate experience of operating as a crime correspondent or other senior newsroom role
Although working as part of the news team, the Crime Correspondent will be expected to “own’’ his or her subject, taking charge of all aspects, including major crimes, long-running police investigations, and the ways crime and the methods of tackling it are changing.
Our Crime Correspondent will be expected to build excellent contacts to produce a regular stream of off-diary exclusives.
He or she will be confident in dealing with senior police officers and, where relevant, politicians.
Archant Suffolk is proud of its coverage of crime. We aim to keep our newspaper readers and digital audience informed, while not alarming them.
