Job Description

Who are we?

Caters News is an international news, picture and video agency and a trusted content supplier to hundreds of editorial and commercial clients worldwide. The Caters group has more than 60 staff working out of seven offices on five continents – including our Birmingham HQ, New York, New Delhi and Sydney bureaux, and the Manchester and Liverpool offices of our sister agency Mercury Press.

Who are you?

We are seeking talented, eager and driven reporters, video researchers and videographers to join our dynamic and growing Sydney and New York editorial teams.

At Caters, our journalists fill global sites and publications with top quality stories and videos every day – covering everything from breaking news and incredible viral footage to the real life human interest stories which get everyone talking.

You’ll be expected to generate your own ideas, so strong news sense, the ability to think creatively and work well to tight deadlines and a thirst for finding organic content which will make international headlines is essential.

Alongside having a sharp eye for detail to spot the best stories and videos, our new recruits must be self-motivated enough to make sure they’re the first person to get them.

You will be a real people person who can start up a conversation with anyone and persuade even the most reluctant interviewee or contributor to open up.

Our new video recruits must have a strong knowledge of the global video media landscape to identify and develop untapped and emerging markets internationally, allowing them to track down unique footage across multiple platforms before it trends.

Journalists looking to apply, meanwhile, will have a sound grasp of media law and the ability to present their copy in a variety of ways.

This is the ideal opportunity for go-getting new starters or more experienced reporters looking to make a name for themselves. If you’re switched on, passionate and want to see your stories and videos used by media outlets across the world, we want to hear from you.

Contact Details

Please submit a CV, salary expectations and cover letter, including professional qualifications, office of interest and details of any Australian or US working rights if applicable, to jobs@catersnews.com

All candidates must have strong written and spoken English, with fluent or conversational knowledge of a major foreign language a bonus.

 

Please mention HoldtheFrontPage when applying for this role. This advert will expire on Friday 7th June 2019.
