VACANCY: News reporter, Westminster
27 September, 2017
THE Westminster Extra newspaper is looking to recruit a full-time news journalist.
Applicants would preferably have a working knowledge of our readership area, a good appreciation of current affairs, online skills and a strong news sense.
We are looking for a reporter who is able to cover a wide range of events, who has good off-diary story ideas and a clean, precise writing style. We would welcome applications from candidates with an appreciation of the newspaper’s independent set-up, campaigning history and link with the community.
The positions will be based at our offices in Camden Town with some evening and occasional weekend work. We are looking for a reporter who thrives on talking to people and making new contacts, rather than relying on re-writing wire copy. While awareness of social media is important, we want reporters who work with it, rather than being slaves to it.
We are looking to fill this position as soon as possible, so no application deadline applies – although we appreciate some candidates will need to work out notice periods if successful.
If interested, please send CV, covering letter and examples of past work to Richard Osley at email@example.com at first available opportunity.
Mark emails ‘reporter vacancy’ in the subject field. If you have recently applied for a position at the Camden New Journal, Islington Tribune and Westminster Extra, there is no need to send a further application.
