A bi-weekly newspaper has reopened its reception on a full-time basis after recruiting three new staff.
Paige Freshwater, 20, has joined as a trainee reporter following her journalism course at Liverpool John Moores University, while the News has also announced the appointment of Simone Kybert, also 20, as a receptionist.
Iliffe has since announced its intent to reopen a number of receptions at its newly acquired titles, with the Bury Free Press being the first to benefit.
Paige, who is originally from Grimsby but now lives in King’s Lynn, said of her appointment: “I’m looking forward to joining such a strong newspaper after studying journalism for three years.”
Simone said: “I have always worked in hospitality so I’m looking forward to trying something new. It’s great that Iliffe Media is investing in the town.”
The pair have also been joined at the News by new media sales adviser Rebecca Baxter, 30.
She said: “I have previously worked in dance as well as retail head office for quite some time in London. I’m excited to start a new career in media with such a growing company.”
