Do you want to be at the forefront of agricultural journalism and report on the business issues which matter to UK and world farmers?
In an era when food production and provenance is leading national news agendas, are you keen to ask supermarket chiefs the hard hitting questions that really matter? Or are you equally adept at turning your attention to the opportunities within the whisky industry and what they mean to farmers?
If the answer is yes, farming's national newspaper Farmers Guardian is seeking a talented multi-media journalist to join its award-winning editorial team.
We are looking for an enthusiastic journalist to help drive our business coverage forward.
Based at our Preston head office, you will be self-motivated and keen to break the latest business news affecting farmers, as well as looking in-depth at trends and the impact of issues in other parts of the world.

The ideal candidate will have:
At least two years’ experience working as a reporter, preferably with some business reporting experience.
Strong, proven multimedia skills.
Full driving licence.
Ability to work well under pressure and as part of a close-knit team.

We offer a competitive salary and an excellent benefits package including 25 days holiday, increasing to 27 after two years, free life assurance and company pension scheme.

To apply, please send a CV and covering letter, along with examples of your work, to the editor, Emma Penny at emma.penny@farmersguardian.com. The closing date for applications is March 22.
