DUNDEE is an exciting place to be right now.

£1 billion is being invested in the waterfront area. A huge V&A museum will make for a spectacular centrepiece. The city has a buzzing cultural quarter and busy night-time economy.

There is also a lively council – and equally lively sheriff court. All of which makes a great place to be a newspaper reporter – not least if that newspaper boasts an increased readership of 14 per cent, year-on-year.

The Courier is read by more than 150,000 people every day and produces a website which attracts almost one million people a month.

Now we need a senior reporter to help us ensure our customers get the best stories, the finest analysis and the most up-to-date news for their area.

Working as a close-knit team and taking direction from the newsdesk, you will work accurately and creatively to tight deadlines. We don’t want you to be chained to your desk, so – armed with your state-of-the-art smartphone – you will be out and about, bringing your stories to life.

You will also be self-motivated and driven to source exclusive stories of a high standard. You will also be expected to use social media to promote our content and source stories.

Key requirements are:

* A full driving licence

* Up-to-date knowledge of newspaper law and IPSO regulations; and

* Outstanding written English and communication skills

Attention to detail and the ability to work to strict deadlines are also essential.
