We are the fastest-growing digital agricultural news publisher in Europe. Following the launch of our standalone UK site – www.agriland.co.uk – we’re looking to expand our UK editorial team.
As News Editor, you will lead an editorial team. Your objective will be to ensure that our digital news coverage is faster-paced and better-positioned than ever previously available.
You will be a valued member of our leadership team, reporting to the Managing Director.
You will be our senior UK editor/journalist and will make a significant contribution to directing and defining our online presence. You will recruit, lead and develop a team of digital journalists and contributors.
Prior experience is essential. Journalistic/editorial skills and experience of web publishing are crucial.
The successful candidate will most likely have a formal journalistic qualification, along with a demonstrable track record in UK media - whether at regional or national level.
We are looking for a digital native with a nuanced understanding of social media and SEO tools. Experience of mentoring and development would also prove useful in this role.
A passion for farming and agriculture would naturally be of benefit too.
If you are highly-motivated, enthusiastic and experienced and want to play a lead role in generating timely and breaking news stories, then we can provide the opportunity.
If this sounds like a challenge that you can rise to we want to hear from you.
