Digital and print reporter


Ref: VAC223

THE Evening Express is looking for a senior reporter to help ensure its readers get the best stories, the finest analysis and the most up-to-date news for their area across our digital and print platforms.

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 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.

The North-east of Scotland is an exciting place to be right now.

Work is under way to shape Aberdeen city centre for the next 20 years. A £333 million scheme to create a 12,500-capacity concert venue, two hotels and an energy centre has been approved.

A City Region Deal from the UK and Scottish Governments will pump more than £250m into the North-east economy.

There is also a lively council – and equally lively sheriff court – all of which makes a great place to be a newspaper reporter!

Key requirements are:

* A full driving licence;

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

* Outstanding written English and communication skills;

* Shorthand 100wpm; and
