The award-winning East Lothian Courier is seeking a talented reporter to drive forward its print and online editions and social media platforms.

We require a journalist able to get to grips with the pressures of a modern newsroom, can spot news trends and react to them fast, as well as get their teeth into the sorts of campaigns and investigations our audiences care about.

You will be as at home running a live blog or Facebook Live video as you are turning round in moments a breaking news story.

Passionate about digital storytelling, you will be hard-working, full of ideas and have a desire to come up with innovative ways of presenting stories across various platforms.

The successful applicant will have an NCTJ diploma in journalism, or an equivalent qualification, as well as a driver's licence and access to a car.

This position would suit an experienced reporter or an outstanding trainee journalist; a competitive salary is on offer, as well as generous holiday entitlement, a bonus scheme, and an employee rewards programme.

If this sounds like the job for you, email your CV and a brief covering letter to the editor, Robbie Scott, by Friday 17 September.
