Rutland and Stamford Mercury, Bourne Local and Rutland Times
|Posted: Tue 13 Jun 2017||Closing Date: Fri 30 Jun 2017|
|Employment Type:||Full time|
We are looking for a sports editor to join our editorial team, producing the Rutland and Stamford Mercury, the Bourne Local and the Rutland Times, based in the beautiful market town of Stamford.
We are proud to be at the heart of the communities we serve and have a strong readership in print and online. The Mercury is Britain's oldest continuously published newspaper, first published in 1712, and while we are proud of our heritage, we are also excited about our future - one that you could be a part of.
The successful candidate will be highly motivated, have strong reporting skills and a keen interest in sport. The ability to hit deadlines and provide accurate clean copy, for both print and online, is essential. A solid understanding of sport, sportspeople and sports clubs and the way they work is key; so too is an attitude that is supportive, enthusiastic and positive.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a talented team which works hard to cover news, sport and events close to the hearts of the communities it serves.
Flexibility with time is necessary to ensure sports events are covered well. A full UK driving licence is also required.
We offer a competitive salary and all the benefits you would expect from a progressive media company like Iliffe Media, which has a rich history of regional press ownership and is growing fast.
Iliffe Media is a growing, independent company with a proud history in local media and a keen eye on the horizon. We think the printed newspaper is as important as its digital future. We also believe everything we produce has to be local and relevant. We’re now the leading local newspaper publisher in this area and we aim to do things differently. Since acquiring these titles as part of a portfolio in January, Iliffe Media has invested in its people and products and will continue to do so. You can be a part of that bright future.
