The Grocer is looking for a brilliant news journalist who can scoop the competition (including the nationals) and write compellingly and authoritatively about the hugely important, political and high-profile fresh and chilled foods sector.
You’ll be working on our award-winning fresh foods desk, covering financial results, key people moves, new product launches, advertising and marketing campaigns, pricing and promotions, and more. In the process you’ll be tackling topical issues like consumer trends, provenance, health and obesity, food safety, innovation, branding, price wars, copyright infringement, sustainability, and, of course, the economy.
You’ll also get to sample plenty of tasty (and not so tasty) food and drink. But while an interest in cooking/recipes/food is welcomed, the emphasis really is on landing great stories week in, week out, and providing comment, blogs, analysis, features and profiles of important industry figures.
You will therefore have:
- Experience of news and business/finance
- An interest in the topic
- The personality, curiosity and intelligence to develop and work senior-level contacts
It’s a high pressure environment, but for the right candidate, it offers huge job satisfaction, a good career path, a competitive salary, as well as company benefits.
- A contributory pension scheme
- Life Assurance
- 25 days’ holiday
- Discounted gym membership
- Free car parking
- Free shuttle service from Three Bridges station
- Season ticket loan (on successful completion of probationary period)
