Overnight Health Reporter

It is a really exciting time to join the Reach PLC family. Due to our sustained growth and our ambitious future growth plans, we are now looking for an Overnight Digital Health Reporter to join the expanding Express.co.uk team.

The Health Reporter will be responsible for ensuring content is engaging, informative and reaches as wide an audience as possible. The role will involve writing about a wide range of health topics, from diabetes to high blood pressure, tapping into the US health journals and studies published overnight.

Please note we will be reviewing applications for this role as applications are submitted. Due to this the role may close without notice, so please don’t delay in your application.

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 better too.

  • Produce high quality content for the Health department
