CLOSING DATE: September 30, 2016
WE are looking to recruit two senior journalists to help run our busy newsroom in the beautiful Highland capital of Inverness.
The current job holders are both moving on to top jobs on the nationals so these are big shoes to fill!
The content editor reports directly in to our editorial director. This is a key role at the head of a three-person newsdesk managing the reporters and specialists in our newly-combined newsroom for the Inverness Courier and the Highland News.
Both titles have won countless industry awards so we are looking to recruit an experienced journalist with an innate news sense and good organisational skills.
You will be full of ideas and able to inspire our team to produce work of the highest standard across all platforms.
The news editor is also part of the newsdesk and reports in to the content editor.
Both roles include identifying stories, briefing reporters and managing copy flow. Working closely with the content editor, you will identify campaigns and opportunities to strengthen our community links.
Inverness is one of Europe’s fastest-growing cities and the Highlands is one of the most beautiful parts of the UK.
The twice-weekly Courier covers everything from community news to stories that make a national impact.
In the recent past, we have highlighted the use of armed police for routine patrols, campaigned for new speed limits on the A9, challenged the long waiting lists endured by people with autism and helped raise £2 million for a dedicated children’s unit at the city’s hospital.
The Highland News is an exciting tabloid paper at the very heart of the community it serves, as its long list of awards reflects.
Benefits include six weeks holiday and a highly-competitive salary.
To apply, email your CV and covering letter to editorial director David Bourn at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, September 30th.
