We’re looking to bolster our motoring editorial team with some serious news hungry journalists.

We have several positions currently vacant – look elsewhere on this site for the other adverts – but for now we’re interested in a News Editor / Managing Editor.

We need a strong leader to help develop our team of journalists who produce daily motoring news for the Press Association, AOL, Motors, Car Dealer and Workshop Magazines among many others.

You will always want to be first with the news, know instinctively how to take a story on to the next level and will be a stickler for detail, accuracy and perfect prose.

You may be currently working on a news desk of a local newspaper and looking for a change – or you could be working in the motoring media and looking for a step up the career ladder.

Motoring knowledge is preferred, but for the right journalist with the right skills we’re willing to guide them in this field – first and foremost we want an excellent news journalist.

If that sounds like you, get in touch.

The role is full time and based in our offices in sunny Gosport. We offer 25 days holiday a year, a company bonus scheme, access to a discounted onsite gym and canteen, and you’ll get to live by the sea.

To apply, answer the questions below in a sparkling covering email and send us your CV to jobs@blackballmedia.co.uk.

1. We’re giving you £100,000, what would you buy? And yes we want you to spend every penny.

2. We’ve asked you to buy a car as an investment for the future. What would you buy and how soon can we expect a return?

3. We’re looking for a feature and money is no object. What would you do and why?

The closing date is May 5. If you have a digital portfolio we’d love to see it or any pieces of work you’re exceptionally proud of.
