|Employment Type:||Full time|
The East Anglian Daily Times title has an opportunity to join their award-winning team as a Senior Reporter. With 15m readers online and in print each month, our audience is hungry for news and our team delivers top quality journalism, in a fast-paced newsroom.
As part of our Suffolk reporting team, you’ll be expected to forge strong contacts in our communities, as well as being on top of the issues that impact them most. Crime, councils, courts, social issues and culture will all be on your radar, and you'll know how to dig out a story.
There are stories at every turn, and it's a fantastic place to live. You will be bursting with ideas for our digital and print platforms, and also have excellent news judgement. Good organisational and communication skills are vital, as is the ability to work under pressure.
Excellent communication skills and the ability to write clean, accurate copy are a minimum requirement. Multi-media awareness is a benefit, but the role is suited to someone strong in the fundamentals of journalism – building contacts and finding exclusives. This is not a desk job, and those unwilling to get their hands dirty need not apply.
You will have:
Full senior journalist qualifications (as shorthand essential)
Evidence of great competence in written and verbal communication skills
Great spelling/attention to detail - particular for writing captions
Strong editorial background
Excellent news judgement
Lots of ideas for print and digital platforms
Good knowledge of Suffolk
Ability to produce sparkling copy for our newspapers and websites
SALARY & BENEFITS
Basic starting salary of up to £25,000 pa
Full 25 days paid holiday + statutory bank holidays
Cycle to Work scheme
Archant Gold – matched charity fundraising
Give as You Earn – tax-free charity giving scheme
Structured career progression, ongoing training and personal performance reviews
