This leading online business news platform is looking for a confident, enthusiastic journalist to cover business news in the North East region of the UK and continue to grow its audience.

You should have some experience in writing news and an eagerness to engage with the North East business community. This online publisher is the go-to place for SME business news in the North East and you will be leading the charge as the regional correspondent. This role goes beyond writing as you will be tasked with continuing to grow the publication's fantastic reputation as a key influencer on a regional level.

This is much more than a classic editing role. Along with timely, quality headline news content, you will be responsible for encouraging users to post their own news, opinion and advice via their self-publishing platform.

You will need to have excellent organisational skills to manage a full schedule which will include news sourcing, relationship building, interviews, social sharing, curation of the member community and administration of the site.

This is an exciting opportunity to work as part of an ambitious editorial team and make a mark in what is a vibrant business news region. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a hunger to become immersed in the North East business scene and business content in general.

You will enjoy working as part of a creative and dedicated team, with flexible working hours and a generous holiday allowance.
