Media job: Senior reporter, The Courier

CLOSING DATE: December 17, 2017

THE Courier is seeking a senior reporter to join its enthusiastic and dedicated news team.

Dundee is an exciting place to be right now. £1 billion is being invested in the waterfront area. A new 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 it 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 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 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.

To apply for this role, please follow our online application process and submit a CV and cover letter.

This is a full-time position, working 35 hours per week, Monday to Friday, from our Meadowside office. We offer a generous package including 34 days holiday, health cash plan, onsite staff gym, childcare vouchers, excellent pension, a competitive salary, and many more staff discounts and benefits.

Closing date for applications is Sunday 17th December’17.
