You Have:

  • 5-8 years of experience as a digitally minded and enterprising reporter

  • A passion for writing clean, jargon-free prose that engages while also informing.

  • Strong writing and reporting skills, with a proven track record of teasing out the right angle out of the barrage of news of the moment and you have a high-metabolism for delivering daily news.

  • Excellent collaboration skills, and are someone who works well with others, making your teammates better with your involvement.
