Job Description

Nub News is hiring local news journalists in Somerset. We're particularly looking for journalists in Glastonbury, Wells and Shepton Mallet.

If you are a highly-motivated journalist who cares about local news, then we want to talk to you.

Nub News is an innovative, digital local news platform that gives its journalists the power to write their own stories and build their own audiences, on a patch where they live and work.

We’re revolutionising local news.

The existing Nub News team of 25 journalists edits 50 local news sites. Each site focuses on a single town or city suburb and each journalist edits two neighbouring sites.

Our team ranges from experienced reporters with more than 40 years in the business, to young journalists recently graduated from university.

For established journalists, Nub News is a chance to concentrate on writing proper local news stories that local people genuinely want to read.

For young reporters, we offer a unique opportunity to learn your trade – to find and publish credible local news on a respected digital platform.

Nub News sites don’t rely on programmable ads so you won’t have to publish ‘clickbait content’ that simply keeps readers on the site.

Instead, our journalists are expected to find original and exclusive, local news stories. They go out into their local communities and talk to people face-to-face.

So we’re looking for enthusiastic applicants who care about both their community and their journalism and who want to enjoy their work.

We’re also offering a competitive salary, with an annual bonus and participation in our share option scheme. We want all our journalists to benefit from the increasing success of Nub News.
