This is a key leadership role with Newsquest's flagship daily and we are looking for a passionate senior journalist to lead our print operation as we look to further cement our position as the leading news brand of the region.
As well as attracting a huge audience to its website, The Northern Echo has the largest print circulation of any of Newsquest's 200+ titles in England and Wales - and we are looking for a print specialist to help us keep it that way.
We have big plans, and the successful candidate will be joining at an exciting period of growth and redevelopment following a raft of exciting appointments in recent months.
This is a key role which requires a natural leader who can put their own stamp on this exciting opportunity to ensure our print edition showcases the best of our content and delivers a quality product for our readers.
Working closely with other newsroom leaders, you will oversee the smooth production and outputting of the print edition of The Northern Echo. You will be a print specialist with a first-rate news sense and production/design skills to match, preferably using inDesign.
The ideal candidate will have at least five years' experience on a daily newspaper and be someone who lives and breathes quality news and has a passion for print allowing others to focus their attention on digital. You will also be a senior leader who can deputise for our editor.
The Northern Echo is one of the best-selling regional newspapers in the UK and Newsquest's flagship title. As part of Newsquest, you will join one of the biggest publishing companies in the UK during a period of major transformation, in both print and online.
