£Competitive + excellent company benefits
Full-time

The reporting of health news over the last year has been more important than ever – the fast spread of coronavirus means we’ve had to react quickly to get the right information out there fast. The pandemic has also drawn attention to other important aspects of health. To keep up with this growing demand for information across a range of health issues and conditions, we’re now looking to expand the Express Health team.

Hello, we are Reach! You might not have heard of us but we have probably met without you even realising it.

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 better too.
