Local news network Nub News wants to hire three Business Editors, to cover its sites in Somerset, Devon and Essex.
We’re looking for three highly-motivated journalists who can find and publish original and exclusive local business stories every day.
In Somerset, the Nub News Business Editor will be responsible for producing a consistent stream of compelling business content for our local sites in Frome, Midsomer Norton, Wells, Shepton Mallet, Street, Glastonbury and other local towns.
Our Business Editor in Devon will be publishing on Nub News sites including Exmouth, Honiton, Dawlish, Sidmouth, Seaton and Axminster.
In Essex, the Business Editor will cover Thurrock, Maldon, Basildon and other local towns where we plan to launch.
Ideal candidates will have the skills to build a network of local business contacts across a county patch – talking to big employers and successful corporates, while at the same time showcasing young entrepreneurs and local independents.
Above everything, our Business Editors will know how to publish colourful, human stories that generate excitement and engagement.
You’ll also be able to build a social media profile that maximises your audience.
As you would expect, our Business Editors will need to have entrepreneurial spirit, working with other local Nub News editors to build audience and revenues.
Nub News is an innovative, digital local news platform that gives its journalists the power to take ownership of their sites.
Our sites don’t rely on programmable adverts so there are no pop-ups and you won’t have to publish content designed solely to generate clicks.
Nub News is always looking for enthusiastic applicants who care about both their community and their journalism and who want to enjoy their work.
We’re already revolutionising local news. Now we want to revolutionise local business.
The Business Editor posts in Somerset, Devon and Essex come with competitive salaries, an annual bonus and participation in our share option scheme. We want all our journalists to benefit from the increasing success of Nub News.
If you think you could be our Cheshire Business Editor, email Editorial Director Mike Sassi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please mention HoldtheFrontPage when applying for this role. This advert will expire on Thursday 23rd December 2021.
