Who are we?

Caters News Agency is the UK's oldest independent press agency, founded by Herbert Cater in 1927.

Since then, we have grown to become a truly global news, picture and video agency and are a trusted content supplier to hundreds of editorial and commercial clients worldwide.

Today, the Caters group has more than 60 staff working out of seven offices on five continents – our Birmingham HQ, New York, Los Angeles, New Delhi and Sydney bureaux, and the Manchester and Liverpool offices of our sister agency Mercury Press.

As part of our video team, our researchers provide TV networks, websites and social media pages with top quality footage every day – covering everything from breaking news to viral videos, which get everyone talking.

This is the perfect chance to join a young and vibrant video team in our office in the heart of Birmingham’s rapidly growing Jewellery Quarter or Manchester, just outside of the Northern Quarter.
