We are keen to speak with experienced reporters who thrive in a fast-paced newsroom environment, enjoy the thrill of breaking news and securing brilliant exclusives. This is an excellent opportunity to join a dynamic team and drive the Express's extensive editorial content and digital presence.

So, who are we?

We are Reach plc, you might not have heard of us but we have probably met without you even realising it. We are home to the UK and Ireland's most iconic digital platforms, magazines and newspapers. From the Mirror, Daily Express and OK!, to our regional titles such as the Liverpool Echo, BirminghamLive and the Manchester Evening News (plus lots more), our brands and the stories we cover are as varied as our people. We help all kinds of people share experiences through our stories because we believe this is what makes us human. Oh, and we should probably also mention that with a monthly readership of 47 million people, Reach is the largest commercial publisher in the UK. At Reach, not only will you feel better understood, you will also feel you understand other people better too.

What will the role involve?

The successful candidate for this role will write and develop stories, with great pictures and engaging video. You will deliver a fast turnaround on major news stories across the UK and around the world and be expected to bring in exclusive stories that set us apart from our rivals.


What are we looking for?

You will be a qualified and experienced journalist, possessing at least 18 months experience at a national or major regional title. Passionate about delivering a wide range of engaging human interest and hard hitting news stories, you will understand what works for a digital audience and deliver content to prove this.

You will relish the daily challenge of working under pressure and to tight deadlines. Any journalist will understand the requirement of flexibility, and this role will involve days, nights and weekends. You will be social media savvy with current SEO knowledge. An understanding of Escenic CMS and Chartbeat is desirable.
