A fantastic opportunity has arisen at HotSpot Media for a creative, organised features writer to take on the role of sourcing, pitching and writing compelling features for national women’s magazines and newspapers.

The ideal candidate will have excellent communication and written skills, plus the ability to think clearly in difficult situations.

Ideally applicants will have NCTJ qualifications, while a story portfolio and relevant work experience would be preferred. The right person will have the ability to talk confidently to people from all walks of life and be able to deal with sensitive subject matter.

The role requires someone who can use their experience and expertise to produce high quality copy - often to tight deadlines.

Candidates should be regular readers of the UK’s tabloids and know their Take a Break from their Closer.

In return, you’ll be offered a salary dependent on experience – as well as a place within a friendly and dedicated team.

This is a great platform for launching a career in journalism.

Please note the job is sales based.

Applicants must be living in the Birmingham area or willing to relocate. There will be some remote working, so motivated candidates are a must.

To apply send your CV, a covering letter and three original real life story ideas you’d see in the weekly real life mags to: nicola@hotspotmedia.co.uk.
