Job Title: Freelance Political Reporter

Working For: Political Scrapbook

Location: Internet

Salary: £85 per day

Job Details

With an influential readership in the Westminster village, newsrooms and beyond, Political Scrapbook is one of the UK’s most recognised political websites. We are looking for freelance reporters to provide editorial cover.

Duties include:

  • Researching, writing and editing articles
  • Working with our network of sources, press officers and other journalists
  • Monitoring of traditional and social media
  • Preparing and then publishing articles using WordPress
  • Updating social channels (Twitter and Facebook)

Formal writing/journalism experience is an advantage, but provided you can demonstrate your ability to produce good copy (by providing examples of non-published work, for example) this is less important than a geeky knowledge of British politics and a feel for Scrapbook's mischievous house style.

Reporters can work remotely but must have continuous availability on the days they are working, i.e. be operating from a single home office (or similar) with desk and access to reliable internet connection etc.

Closing Date: 17 March 2018

Interview/Start Dates

Applications close at midday. We aim to be inducting reporter(s) from next week, Monday 19 March. We may appoint early so immediate application encouraged!
