Media Job: Agriculture editor, The Courier

CLOSING DATE: November 27, 2015

Agriculture editor

The Courier


Ref:  VAC156

AFTER more than ten years on the frontline, our agriculture editor, and current UK Regional Farming Journalist of the Year, Ewan Pate, has decided to retire.

These are ‘big boots to fill’ but for the right person this is a fantastic opportunity to be at the heart of the agriculture industry, reporting on the stories and issues that matter to Scottish farmers and food producers.

We require a self-starter with a broad knowledge of the industry and a network of key contacts.

You will be responsible for the daily Farming section of The Courier and will work with our colleagues at the Press and Journal to produce our Saturday Farming supplement.

Each require a blend of strong stories that break the news the industry needs to know, incisive analysis on industry issues and trends and all the colour of events on the regular farming calendar including shows and major sales.

Only those with expert industry knowledge and a good pair of wellies should apply.

Closing date for applications is Friday 27th November 2015.
