Triangle News, Picture Desk Assistant
Who We Are
Triangle News is an award-winning news and features agency providing agenda-setting stories to the world’s largest media outlets. If you read a newspaper, a magazine, or share stories online, chances are you have seen one of ours.
We are independently-run and committed to making an impact on the world of journalism.
You will be joining a small, friendly and ambitious team with a focus on delivering quality content and supporting talented journalists with years of newspaper and magazine experience.
We are looking for a motivated, hard-working individual to join our picture desk, sourcing images for national newspapers and their websites.
You will play an integral part in finding and processing all of Triangle’s visual content, making sure all images and videos are meticulously captioned and fully researched.
A large part of the role will be supporting our journalists by finding images to work alongside their stories, so a strong sense of what makes the news is a must.
You will also need excellent organisational skills as you will be liaising with photographers daily, making sure we get the best pictures and organising shoots.
The ability to spot a new video before it goes viral would be a huge advantage and you’ll also be responsible for editing captions, keywords, and uploading content, so your spelling and grammar must be spot-on.
The ideal candidate will be exceptionally good at hunting out stunning images for titles like the Times, the Daily Mirror, the Daily Mail and the Sun.
A thorough knowledge of social media sites will also mean you know about emerging images and content before anyone else.
You will also build contacts with titles around the world, forging new relationships with picture desks in Europe and beyond so you must have a keen and confident phone manner.
Knowledge of picture and video editing software would be advantageous, but is not essential as training will be given.
This role would be perfect for someone starting out who wants to develop their knowledge of national papers and their image requirements.
It could also work for someone who has had their first job on a picture desk but is looking to develop their skills.
