Job Description

Mercury Press and Caters News Agency are seeking talented, eager and driven reporters to join our dynamic and growing Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham editorial teams.

At Mercury and Caters, our journalists fill global publications with top quality stories every day – covering everything from breaking news to the offbeat real-life stories which get everyone talking.

We’re looking for a real ‘people person’ who can start up a conversation with anyone and persuade even the most reluctant interviewee to open up – as well as have a sense of humour for the quirkier stories.

You’ll be expected to generate your own ideas, so strong news sense and a thirst for finding the tales which will make international headlines is essential.

As well as being able to spot the best stories, you’ll be ambitious and determined enough to make sure you’re the first person to get them.

Our new recruit will have a sharp eye for detail, will work well to deadlines and will have the ability to present their copy in a variety of ways.

This is a great opportunity for a go-getting new starter or more experienced reporter looking to make the next move to make a name for yourself writing for an international news, picture and video agency providing content to the world media from our seven offices in five continents.

If you’re switched on, creative and passionate and want to see your stories published in media outlets across the globe, it’s the ideal opportunity.

Applicants should ideally have an NCTJ qualification or similar, full clean driving licence and their own car.
