Job Description

Part time journalist

Credible Media is a fiercely independent, forward- thinking media production company based in Oldham. We own and operate the digital and print versions of the Oldham Evening Chronicle as well as commercial radio station Mon’s Spaghetti. We produce regular B2B publications and a lifestyle magazine.

We’re now looking for a part-time journalist to work across our brands, but primarily on the Oldham Chronicle.

Your key responsibilities will be

• Setting a news agenda for our audience
• Developing and preparing stories at a fast pace for online and print
• Building strong relationships with the local community, and leading local figures
• Engaging with incoming enquiries from our readers.

As part of a small team, you will need to be pro-active and highly motivated to find original stories for our platforms.

This is a highly sought-after role in one of the UKs busiest news patches. We'd like to hear from you if you:

• Have excellent writing skills, including the flexibility to work across platforms
• Have experience in writing and collating news, and longer form pieces
• Are able to identify trending stories and come up with original ideas
• Are self-motivated, confident, and with tons of initiative
• Have excellent organisational skills with an eye for video as well as written work
• Have an understanding of social media, including publishing and analytics.

Experience is preferred but will consider recent graduates if your writing is of an extremely high standard.
