Legal Business, the leading title for the world’s top commercial lawyers, is recruiting a news editor. We are looking for experienced candidates with at least three and ideally five years of business reporting experience to help manage our news output and continue driving the dramatic increases in our online traffic.

We will consider candidates who are already news editors on another title or senior reporters ready to move to the next level.

Prior experience of the legal industry is obviously a strong bonus. A commitment to contact-driven, off-diary journalism, high standards and an interest in business and the City is a must. The successful applicant will manage five journalists working on news and analysis across online and iPad and a glossy monthly print title.

The role will also include personally cultivating contacts and writing analysis for a high-level professional audience. The position comes with a competitive salary depending on experience, a supportive team environment and an attractive central London location.
