We are seeking experienced reporters, editors and multimedia experts to join our growing newsroom to help us launch a new website focusing on the impacts and opportunities presented by historic and current Muslim migration into Europe and the UK.

If you are a reporter, editor and/or multimedia expert seeking a new challenge we offer competitive rates and flexible working opportunities across the full journalistic spectrum, including news reporting, feature writing, long reads and audio/visual content. 

We are seeking digital journalists who can combine in-depth reporting with vivid storytelling and an instinct for stories about this important topic.

Key responsibilities:

  • Propose, research, report, and write insightful and well-contextualised features, occasional analyses as well as news stories drawn from the UK.
  • On occasion, produce swift “turnaround” stories.
  • Develop and use multimedia tools to amplify, illustrate and promote a story or feature, including creative use of social media to communicate our journalism to a wide audience.
  • Maintain regular and clear communication with editors to ensure all are properly briefed on activities and work schedules.

Requirements:

  • Candidates should have a robust insight into the impacts, aspirations and influences associated with historic and current Muslim migration into the UK — across political, social, economic and civil society fields as well as sport, business, arts and lifestyle.
  • Candidates should have at least 5-10 years’ reporting experience with solid contacts and a history of generating original and compelling story ideas.
  • Evidence of producing exclusive stories and features which have been followed up by other media. 
  • Excellent reporting and writing skills across shorter and feature length stories.
  • Must be able to demonstrate sound journalistic practice such as balance, careful sourcing, fairness and an awareness of potential legal liabilities (contempt, libel etc) attached to public interest journalism.
  • Ability to communicate effectively with a target audience using all the tools available to experienced digital journalists. 
  • A knowledge of how to exploit a story or feature at the commissioning stage on a wide range of digital platforms.
  • Work collaboratively with other reporters and editors.
  • Ability to convey a complex story from ideation to planning and execution.
