An exciting start-up seeks experienced reporters, editors and multimedia experts to join our newsroom and help launch an innovative new website focusing on issues affecting and related to new and established Muslim communities in the UK and Europe.

We need digital journalists who can combine in-depth reporting and vivid storytelling to engage a diverse, intelligent and forward-thinking readership.

For the right candidates, we offer competitive rates and flexible working opportunities across the full journalistic spectrum, including news reporting, feature writing, long reads and audio-visual content.

Work closely with our senior and deputy editor to edit and fact-check news stories, features and comment pieces by staff and freelancers. 

Play a key role in managing and helping to develop staff reporters, while also assessing and contributing ideas from a network of freelancers.

Occasionally writing or editing swift-turnaround stories. 

The role requires effective management of the daily, weekly and monthly publishing schedule.

Maintaining regular and clear communication with editors to ensure all are properly briefed on activities and work schedules.

The successful candidate will be comfortable working on both shorter, velocity stories and in-depth narrative features.

Requirements:

Candidates should have a robust insight into the aspirations and influences associated with new and established Muslim communities into the UK and Europe — across political, social, economic and civil society fields, as well as sport, business, arts and lifestyle.

Excellent commissioning, line editing and subbing skills.

A contact book filled with established and emerging writers.

A proven track record of delivering engaging stories and a history of generating original and compelling ideas.

Must be able to demonstrate sound journalistic practice, such as balance, careful sourcing and a solid, practical understanding of media law.

Experience commissioning and collaborating on multimedia content is highly desirable.

Benefits:

30 days paid leave per year.

Working from home, with some days in our London office.

Applicants should email a CV, cover letter and relevant examples of their work
