News Reporter

TES (formerly the Times Educational Supplement) – the UK’s biggest website for schools – is looking for an ambitious reporter to join its award-winning news team.

The ideal candidate will have a strong record of breaking exclusives and investigations in a fast-paced environment, and will be ready for a role on a national, specialist title.

They will be hungry to build contacts across a range of patches, pitch ideas and deliver agenda-setting scoops that serve a professional readership.

They will also be committed to the highest standards of accuracy and possess the ability to write clean, timely copy across different formats – primarily news stories and investigations, but also long reads and analyses.

Experience of working across different digital platforms, including video, would be a bonus, as would data journalism skills.

Key skills and experience:

  • NCTJ qualification or equivalent
  • Passion for specialist news journalism
  • Desire to hold decision-makers to account on behalf of school leaders
  • Ability to identify the information that school leaders need, when they need it
  • Keen eye for detail
  • Strong understanding of the challenges and needs of TES readers
  • Ability to work quickly under tight deadline pressure while retaining high levels of accuracy
  • Tenacity to produce long-term investigations and source off-diary stories
  • Experience working on a busy daily news desk
