With demand for healthcare insight and ideas at an all-time high, Aspect Publishing is building a portfolio of exciting health-based magazines.

We are looking for people with NCTJ qualifications and some newspaper, magazine or digital journalism experience. This is an ideal opportunity for reporters looking to develop a highly sought-after specialism and build knowledge and expertise in a growth area of the media.

You will have access to the very latest storytelling tools and be part of a friendly team which seeks to provide world-class journalism to audiences online and in print.
