Job descriptionEntry-level opportunity for graduates with journalism or media qualification. Must have a good understanding of modern, online journalism techniques and internet consumption patterns of the youth.
Modern journalism skills include using the benefits of platforms like Twitter to access primary sources that otherwise wouldn’t be available. It can also be used as a research tool to determine which topics are currently interesting to our readers. In a world where the news cycle is 24 hours, spending all day writing an article is not an option. A journalist with Portal Publishing needs to work accurately, at speed, to publish ahead of the competition so that our readers know they can continue to rely on us for the latest news.
A good nose for a story probably can’t be taught, but it can be honed. But sitting back and waiting for stories isn’t what we are about. We need to plan ahead, assess what the top stories will be tomorrow and start to track down the interviews we will be needing – even when they aren’t keen on speaking to us
