CN Group, based in Carlisle, has a rare opportunity for a talented recruit to take on the leadership of a team of committed multi-media journalists covering every aspect of this business world.

in-cumbria magazine is the county’s monthly business bible reaching key players across Cumbria and beyond. Its website has a growing audience and its daily newsletter has a click rate that proves it’s a must-read for anyone who wants to be in the know.

Our business team also provides the daily content that powers business sections in our print titles and their websites including the News & Star and the North West Evening Mail as well as The Cumberland News, Times & Star and The Whitehaven News.

And we’ve got great plans for in-cumbria’s sister website and newsletter inthebay serving the North Lancashire and Morecambe Bay area.

The team is also behind a growing number of business-focussed events and for 2017 we’ve got exciting initiatives to expand our services.

We need someone able to drive all these areas forward and ensure the team can deliver.
