Do you thrive in a fast-paced news environment?William Wei, Business Insider
Business Insider UK is looking for a diehard news junkie and social media obsessive for an associate news editor position.
The associate news editor will be responsible for following world events and reporting on them in real time on our website and across social media platforms. That means one day, you could be following every development in the Westminster terror attack. The next, you’d be reporting on front page reactions to the first round French election results.
This person will also help to manage story placement on the front page, including writing headlines and picture selection.
The ideal associate news editor:
- Interprets breaking news quickly and writes at lightning speed
- Balances breaking news and analysis with deeper-reported, original stories
- Is an excellent storyteller — he or she is good at taking complex current events and presenting them in a compelling and relatable way
- Identifies stories from wire services and partner sites and frames them for Business Insider
- Curates the homepage, which involves choosing stories to feature, writing snappy headlines, and choosing thumbnails that pop on our site
- Has 2-4 years of experience in a fast-paced digital newsroom
