Regional publisher Local World is recruiting a national team of digital journalists to help spearhead new website launches in 2015.
Steve Anglesey, left, who was recruited from Trinity Mirror to the newly-created position of digital content director in November, is assembling a new digital team to be based at LW’s offices in High Street Kensington.
The team will be responsible for creating “must-read, highly shareable content” for the group’s existing website and future new product launches.
The advert reads: “You will write and build must-read, highly shareable content for new launches in 2015 and beyond as well as for our existing local websites.”
Local World has not so far responded to requests for further information about the plans.
Its predecessor company Northcliffe Media previously had a national digital team which was based at the offices of Northcliffe Electronic Publishing in Derby until 2009.
At the time it was responsible for digital publishing across the company’s regional newspaper portfolio but the team was eventually dismantled and its responsbilities handed back to individual newspaper titles.
Steve joined LW with a brief to oversee the company’s “accelerated programme of digital transformation”.
He previously served as Trinity Mirror’s head of digital business development, promoting the company’s video strategy.
