Job Details

GPonline.com acts as a vital forum for UK GPs, providing daily news and analysis plus practical advice and information to help them in their daily working lives.

This is a crucial period in the history of the NHS, which is facing huge challenges as it tackles the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic and aims to address a massive backlog in care. As senior reporter you will be covering what is likely to be a key political battleground for the next general election, explaining how policy changes and wider developments in the healthcare sector impact on frontline staff in general practice.

Your central role is the gathering of news and creation of high quality, engaging content to help GPs and their teams understand the environment in which they work and improve their personal effectiveness and the performance of their practices. You will also contribute to our weekly podcast, Talking General Practice, which we record in Haymarket's new purpose-built studio.  We specialise in data-driven news, so you should be adaptable and confident in dealing with statistics.

Haymarket is a successful international specialist media company. We have over 60 market-leading brands in the consumer and B2B markets across the UK, US, Asia, India and Germany, connecting people and communities across digital, print, festivals, awards, conferences, and exhibitions.

As a global business operating in diverse markets, we are inherently multicultural and we are committed to attracting, developing and retaining talent who reflect the communities we serve. We equally recognise our broader responsibility to society as a whole and use our power and influence to drive diversity, equity and inclusion within our markets.

Key tasks

  • Aim to identify and deliver exclusive news and content opportunities wherever possible.
  • Develop and maintain a network of key contacts as a basis for news and information gathering.
  • Ensure the best possible presentation of all content, using digital tools and skills such as data visualisation.
  • Generate ideas for new content to meet the news, information and guidance needs of GPs.
  • Use web analytics to systematically review and improve your coverage.
  • Make use of social media to promote your content and ensure GP is appropriately represented.
  • Commission and edit content from external contributors when necessary.

Person specification

We’re looking for someone with at least two year’s experience as a journalist, which includes working in an online environment. You should be familiar with working with a CMS and using online tools to effectively create engaging content.

Experience of reporting on the healthcare sector is not essential, but you must have a keen interest in politics and policy and a desire to learn about the ins and outs of the NHS.

Ideally you will have some experience of data journalism and understand how social media can be used to enhance news coverage.

Why work with us? People are our greatest asset here at Haymarket Media Group. Haymarket is a media, information and data business, we use our expertise in media and information to inspire, inform and empower our clients, audiences and communities. We are a socially and environmentally responsible business. As we serve our audiences, clients and communities, we are committed to driving the meaningful change necessary to build a better world. The principles of diversity, inclusion, respect, responsibility and sustainability are at the heart of our business.

We’re hard-wired to produce remarkable content for our audiences, with over 16,000 companies around the globe turning to us to help their businesses grow. Join us and you will work on market-leading brands to help create powerful and lasting relationships that deliver real results, all while developing your own career.

Our conveniently located Twickenham HQ is home to around 600 employees with a vast array of careers from journalism, video, marketing, sales and events to technology, digital development and product management.

As well as being the home of English rugby, Twickenham has the benefit of being less than 30 minutes from central London but also enjoying its riverside location, proximity to Richmond Park and a buzzing social scene.

With flexible hours, great brands, and a modern open plan environment, we attract great people. There’s time for you to get involved in our extra-curricular activities too; from volunteering with our charity partners, going for a lunch-time riverside run, cycling around Richmond Park or after work fun!

Our team culture is friendly, vibrant and sociable. We nurture, support and reward our talent. We offer a market-leading benefits programme, tailored to individual needs and preferences. The range of benefits are vast and include a generous pension plan, life assurance, up to 30 days holiday and a fabulous income protection policy. Oh, and our annual employee party is pretty special too!

Our benefits include:

  • Competitive salary
  • Comprehensive training and career development programme
  • 25 days holiday per year excluding bank holidays (increasing 1 day per year of service up to 30 days)
  • Flexible working schedule (core hours from 10-3)
  • Generous contributory pension scheme
  • Access to Perkbox
  • Health Cash Plan
  • Family friendly policies
  • Cycle to Work scheme
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Season ticket loan
  • Regular individual and team rewards and incentives for outstanding performance

We want to support our people to balance their personal and professional lives and we believe our range of benefits encourages this. We feel that nothing beats face-time with our colleagues and we’ve therefore adopted a blended working model where full time employees can expect to spend 3 days of their week in the office and the other 2 working at a location of their choice.
We are proud to be an equal opportunities employer and are committed to ensuring that all candidates are given the same opportunity to succeed regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, marital status, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion, age or disability.
If you need any reasonable adjustments to enable you to fully participate in the recruitment process, please contact us at recruitment@haymarket.com.
Come and join us and see for yourself how Haymarket is a rewarding and exciting place to work.

Company

More information

Haymarket has its heart and soul in publishing and media.

Since we founded the company half a century ago, Haymarket has always prided itself on being a highly creative business, with an unrelenting focus on the quality of our products and our people.

Our philosophy has always been quite simple: only by having the highest quality individuals can you produce the highest quality products, combining the best in content, design, production and customer services.

Globalisation is opening up the world further, and providing many opportunities for us to continue to grow. You’ll see elsewhere in the site that we have offices around the world, and that many of our titles are now truly global brands.

Haymarket serves a broad spread of markets, from sport to medicine, from technology to town planning. We’re in consumer, business and customer media, along with exhibitions and live events. Predicting the shape of our business in three, five or 10 years is almost impossible; and the unpredictability is, for us, part of the appeal.

We aim to be the perfect company to work with or for – we have the processes and attitude that ensure quality and consistency, and an entrepreneurial spirit that makes every day rewarding.
