ALREADY with newsroom experience, we’re looking for someone to help ensure our readers get the best stories and the most up-to-date news for their area across our digital and print platforms.

Working as part of 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.

Aberdeen FC are challenging at the top of the Scottish Premiership and have made it to two cup finals – with the Scottish Cup final against Celtic just weeks away.

At a local leavel, our team has captured the drama of the Highland League and grassroots football as well as reporting on a range of other sports.
