Job Description

TheBusinessDesk.com is looking to strengthen its editorial team and we are seeking applications for the position of Yorkshire business reporter, based in Leeds.

The online regional business news website was launched in 2007 and now operates four regions across the North and Midlands.

Our journalists enjoy fantastic access to the region’s senior business and political leaders and the freedom to make the most of their roles.

The successful candidate will thrive working at a fast pace and being part of the regional business community.

Experience as a business journalist would be beneficial but is not essential.

The closing date for applications is Friday, March 8, 2019, although we will look to arrange interviews with suitable candidates immediately so would encourage applications before the deadline.

Business Reporter

  • Ideally suited to an individual with 2+ years experience of newspapers or online media, ready to take the next step in their career.
  • Business experience not essential, but previous responsibility for a beat or patch beneficial. A journalist's eye for a story and being comfortable with numbers and jargon, as well as the ability to generate stories through relationships and building trust is more important.
  • The successful candidate will be hard-working, energetic and open to making the most of opportunities.
