Do you want to make your name researching and reporting on an emerging policy area? Do you want to investigate, interview and analyse rather than re-writing press releases?
That's what we do at PolicyTracker. We are the only newsletter devoted to spectrum policy, an increasingly important part of the telecoms, broadcasting, satellite and technology sectors. A highly respected publication, we have been in existence for 17 years and all the major players in the field are subscribers. We also have a subscription research service, produce bespoke business reports and provide consultancy services.
We need a senior journalist who can identify the issues that matter to companies, regulators and government then convert this into news, features and analysis pieces. These will be delivered via our subscription website policytracker.com. Take a trial to find out more! (Mention that you're a job applicant)
This post is ideally suited to a graduate with journalism qualifications and at least a year's experience. Most of your time will be spent writing articles for our newsletter but you can also contribute to our research activities. The beat is global and this job focuses on Europe. There are opportunities for travel once Covid allows!
This is not a working from home position and is based in our offices in Vauxhall in Central London. For the right candidate, we will offer a highly competitive salary.
