A unique opportunity to join us at the award-winning publication The Morning Advertiser – the leading title for the pub and bar industry has arisen.

This is a coveted position for a news hound who will be tackling issues around legislation to telling publican’s stories and everything in between.

You will have a nose for news with great attention to detail, alongside the determination to bring our readers the most important and interesting information from the trade.

Reporters on The Morning Advertiser are also some of the first to experience new launches in the hospitality trade, and often travel the UK and Europe, tasting beers, wines, spirits and various cuisines as part of their role. 

Each day is different; one day you can find yourself eating at a Michelin-starred pub or drinking cocktails in a swanky bar, while the next day you could be breaking news about the latest merger, acquisition or legal issue within the industry.
