Job Description

We are looking for a trainee reporter to join our editorial team producing the Bury  Free Press. We are proud to be at the heart of the communities we serve and have a strong readership both in print and online.

The successful candidate will be highly motivated, have strong news gathering skills and be able to work effectively under pressure to meet deadlines. A sharp news sense is vital, as is the ability to provide accurate clean copy for both print and online. A solid understanding of social media is key, so too is an attitude that is supportive, enthusiastic and positive. A gold NCTJ diploma is required, including shorthand.

The successful candidate will be able to focus clearly on issues that hold the interest of our readers and be keen to build relationships with key local figures. You will need to be good with people and have a great telephone manner.

Flexibility with time is necessary to ensure meetings and events are covered. A full UK driving licence is also required.

We offer a competitive salary and all the benefits you would expect from a progressive media company.

Iliffe Media is a growing, independent company with a proud history in local media and a keen eye on the horizon. We think the printed newspaper is as important as its digital future, but it has to be local and relevant.
