Job Description

Mercury Press is an international news, photo and video agency with offices in Liverpool and Manchester and a proven track record in providing creative content to media outlets worldwide.

At Mercury, our journalists and photographers fill the pages of national newspapers and their websites with top-quality stories every day, covering everything from hard breaking news to the offbeat tales that get people talking.

We are on the hunt for an enthusiastic and determined individual with a sharp eye for a story and a positive ‘can do’ attitude to join our news desk in our Manchester or Liverpool office.

Mercury want to hear from talented journalists who have a proven track record for consistently generating ideas and stories that get people talking, who can hit the ground running and produce the goods on a daily basis to beat the competition.

As well as sourcing and writing your own content, the successful candidate will work alongside our editor in running the news desk to ensure our output is of the highest quality and legally sound, both in terms of your own stories and those of other members of the team.

The successful candidate will also be expected to react to breaking news, know what we should be covering and how, while securing and managing orders from national newspaper desks.

Agency / national newspaper experience would be an advantage and your own car and clean driving licence are essential.
