jobs description

Part of News Corp, The Sun is a global publisher and one of the biggest news brands in the UK. Our talented and diverse team publishes the best coverage of news, sport, TV, showbiz, consumer and lifestyle.

In early 2020 we launched a US edition, and within 18 months became the fastest-growing news site in the US, building the business from an initial 20 staff to a 130-person operation.

Although our main office is in New York, we have a growing US hub working out of The Sun offices in London that publishes US news for a US audience, taking advantage of the time difference.

We are looking for someone to take on full time weekly shifts, including some weekends on the news desk. Shift times are 7am-4pm and 8am-5pm with an hour for lunch.

Recent graduates with digital newsroom experience are welcome, as well as more seasoned professionals.

This is a news role, but as part of a small team you will be expected to turn your hand to stories across multiple desks, writing entertainment... lifestyle, sport and consumer lines, as well as more traditional news.

This is an incredible opportunity to help shape our future development from the ground up, with plenty of potential for a staff contract for outstanding reporters.

The shift rate is £120.

The role is based in London, however remote work will be considered for outstanding candidates. You must be eligible to work in the UK.

Key accountabilities:
• You will turn around copy quickly and accurately, mindful of legal issues.
• You will write in a concise and entertaining way.
• You will identify trending and newsworthy stories and subjects that will drive traffic.
• You will work with the video desk and picture desk.
• You will interview people as required.

Skills and experience:
• Experience in a similar position, or a position with directly transferable skills.
• Experience using WordPress or similar as well as a picture management system.
• Experience working on breaking news stories.
• Strong understanding of social media.
• Strong knowledge of analytics and how to use data to select stories to maximise daily traffic.

Equal Opportunities: We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status
