The Grocer, International Trade Editor
The Grocer is looking for an International Trade Editor to explore the big issues affecting the UK’s global food and drink supply chains.
That will include Brexit, which is set to cause major delays and disruption in the short term, but could also lead to some radical longer-term shifts in the import and export of food and drink, including new international trade deals.
It will also involve leading The Grocer’s coverage of global trade wars, emerging disease threats, sourcing opportunities, as well as sustainability concerns in global food and drink supply chains – from extreme weather events to the destruction of Indonesian rainforests for palm oil, or the use of destructive fishing methods by Thai tuna vessels, as well as the abuse of workers’ rights on Italian tomato farms, and the search for alternatives to plastic, all of which are having a big impact on the availability and price of our food.
You’ll need to be an established news and features writer, with an excellent nose for a story, a good grip of global politics, and multimedia skills. Ideally, you’ll also have some experience with data journalism and an existing understanding of trade, supply chain and sustainability issues.
The Grocer is one of the UK’s most influential and high-profile business media publications.
The bible of the grocery retail market and the flagship title of the highly successful William Reed group, working on The Grocer means you will join a big team of award-winning journalists on an innovative and progressive publication, with lots of training and career development opportunities, as well as a competitive salary and benefits.
Based in newly refurbished offices in Crawley, William Reed is a fast growing, family owned publishing company with offices in the UK, Montpellier, Chicago and Singapore.
This role is likely to involve international travel. There are also opportunities for flexible and remote working.
