This is a perfect opportunity for a graduate journalist looking to take their first step on the journalism ladder and gain immediate experience of a busy news desk.
The role will involve supporting the editors of each title and assisting with their daily task of producing and publishing daily email news bulletins for their respective industries.
The editorial assistant will need to be able to identify what makes a compelling story, turn corporate announcements into concise, water-tight copy and come up with punchy business-led headlines.
They must have exceptional grammar skills, a hunger for gathering news and a passion for wanting to break exclusive stories and content as the role is heavily news writing-based.

The company has recently expanded a couple of its titles into the American market and the editorial assistant will be involved in producing content for this target market as well.
Previous incumbents of this role who have shown exceptional attitude and aptitude have gone onto senior editorial roles, been handed additional editorial responsibilities and offered the chance to attend overseas events on behalf of the company.
The ideal candidate for this position will love the challenge of turning raw copy into original copy, get a buzz from seeing their work published online and have an interest in business and corporate affairs.
In return they will get to cut their teeth in business journalism, gain firsthand experience of all editorial, online and print duties, and have the opportunity to attend industry conferences and trade shows.
Day-to-day responsibilities will include:
- Supporting the editorial director and editors on all editorial and admin tasks.
- Daily online news and headline writing.
- Building professional relationships with key industry executives.
