This leading online business news platform needs a confident, entrepreneurial journalist to expand upon their recent growth in the London region of the UK.

You should have some experience in business news writing and established contacts for the role. This company is the go-to place for SME business news in the region and you will be leading the charge as the regional correspondent.

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, curation of the member community, sharing content and administration of the site.

This is a role that forms part of a wider, innovative media model that looks to forge an alternative to unworkable traditional practices. As such, you should be forward-thinking and ready to innovate the communications field.

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 work from this company's HQ in Newcastle upon Tyne.
