Who We Are
Triangle News is a London-based national news agency providing agenda-setting stories to Britain’s largest media outlets. If you read newspapers, magazines, surf the web or share news online, chances are you have seen one of our stories. We believe content should be entertaining, informative, shareable and targeted to the modern, mobile-centric consumer.
We are new, independently-run and committed to making an impact on the world of journalism. You will be joining a small, friendly and ambitious team with a focus on delivering quality content and supporting talented journalists with years of national newspaper experience.
We need someone buzzing with ideas and who lives and breathes news. You will be expected to work across all fields, one day writing a national newspaper spread, the next a short, catchy online piece.
Some video production work may also be included alongside writing features for national women’s magazines. You may also liaise with TV shows such as This Morning and Good Morning Britain, making the job perfect for someone who likes variety.
You will be expected to independently provide content, fully researched and of the highest quality, on a daily basis. Training and assistance will be provided and you will be working closely with our news editor who has worked on many of the national news desks.
There is huge potential to progress within the business. Some travel may be required as you attend press events and go searching for exclusive content.
We are looking for a reporter who can match our ambition and who is hungry to be a part of a ground-breaking new independent agency. As we are a young business you will be reporting directly to the owners so the opportunity to train and progress on the job will be significant.
It is essential that you have good news sense’ and are capable of spotting what would make a good story for both the national newspapers and women’s magazines. Ideally you will have local newspaper experience. You must also be confident interviewing people from all walks of life on some extremely sensitive topics.
You must have a NCTJ journalism qualification or equivalent. Shorthand is preferred but not essential. A full clean driving licence and access to a vehicle would be preferable although not essential.
This role is perfect for someone who has been working on local papers and looking for a national newspaper challenge.
