Entertainment Features Writer

 Paddington

 Editorial - Entertainment

 Full time

 Permanent

 

We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Features Writer to join our London-based PA Entertainment team

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is passionate about and consumes quality Entertainment content. We are looking for someone who loves generating ideas and interviewing celebrities across all areas of Entertainment.  

 

What you’ll be doing …

You will be required to generate content across print and digital, writing Features for the PA Wire service, as well as for online customers. You should be abreast of all the latest news and features, be able to write in different styles and tones of voice, for different audiences and platforms. 

Ideally you will have news writing experience and you will be required to help the Entertainment team generate news lines from interviews and any exclusive opportunities when the situation arises.

You should be able to turn around snappy, quirky articles as well as lengthy interview pieces and will also enjoy writing across all Entertainment areas – music, film, TV and celebrity. You should possess excellent journalism skills and be able to connect widely with different audiences, while managing a busy workload. 

You will help with organising interviews, conducting them and keeping planning documents up to date when required.

 

What you’ll need … 

This is a fast-paced role, working on a lot of varied material as part of a friendly team. 

You will also be required to work weekends and evenings when the need arises as interviews or screenings may take place outside of normal working hours. 

Currently interviews are taking place online and some in-person, but, when it is safe to do so and if screenings resume their normal patterns down the line, you would be required to attend evening events, screenings and Q&A’s with talent. 

Previous experience as a multi-skilled journalist, working across both print and digital outputs, is an essential requirement of the role and you will have an impressive catalogue of work to show for this.

 

Do you have …?

  • Excellent journalism skills and the ability to write for different audiences, while managing a busy workload?
  • Strong experience in features writing and turning around well structured, highly readable, accurate and concise copy? 
  • An NCTJ-approved qualification?

 

Inclusion 

We’re working hard to ensure we provide an inclusive environment and as well as your skills and experience we’re also focused on who you are and what else you can bring. We recognise the importance of a healthy work life balance. We will do everything we can to support you during your application. If you need us to make any adjustments to our recruitment process, speak to our recruitment team who will be happy to support you.

Why wait?
 
We will be considering candidates as they apply, so please do not delay in submitting your application as we may decide to close the advert early.
