Do you thrive under pressure? The Daily Star is looking for an experienced, versatile journalist to join our digital team. We want someone with the talent, nous and energy to help lead the team behind the UK’s fastest-growing mainstream digital brand to new heights.
To bag this position, you’ll need to be comfortable in all areas of content, from News and Showbiz to Sport and Lifestyle. We’re an audience-focused outfit, so you’ll need to develop a deep understanding of the brand and how to convey its three pillars of fun, cheekiness and irreverence in ways that drive traffic to the website and reach new readers.
In this role, you’d often be in control of the digital operation on a day-to-day basis, instructing section heads what to prioritise, commissioning stories and curating the homepage, among other tasks. This is an incredible opportunity to bag one of the best jobs in journalism.
So, who are we?
We are Reach plc, you might not have heard of us but we have probably met without you even realising it. We are home to the UK and Ireland’s most iconic digital platforms, magazines and newspapers. From the Mirror, Daily Express and OK!, to our regional titles such as the Liverpool Echo, BirminghamLive and the Manchester Evening News (plus lots more), our brands and the stories we cover are as varied as our people. We help all kinds of people share experiences through our stories because we believe this is what makes us human. Oh, and we should probably also mention that with a monthly readership of 47 million people, Reach is the largest commercial publisher in the UK. At Reach, not only will you feel better understood, you will also feel you understand other people.
