Job Description

The Sunday Post is looking for a new political editor to lead our coverage of the biggest issues facing Scotland today. Brexit, independence, health, transport and policing are just a few of the subjects that will land on your desk if you secure this role. But we don't just want the usual reporting on such matters we want you to break exclusive lines and stories that leave your rivals trailing in your wake.

The ideal candidate would have a contacts book filled with the numbers of top-level sources, the tenacity to get to the heart of a story no matter what is put in your way, and the guile to know which stones to turn over next.

Only senior reporters, with experience of breaking major exclusives, should apply for this role. You will also need a full driving licence.

If you want to join Scotland’s Newspaper of the Year, please follow our online application process and submit a CV and cover letter.
