The Northern Echo, Newsquest's flagship daily title, is looking for a top-class reporter with bundles of enthusiasm to join the Great Daily of the North.

For more than 150 years The Northern Echo has been setting the agenda with hard-hitting investigations and campaigns - and an exciting opportunity has arisen to join our team.

We are looking for a journalist who lives and breathes digital, understands the needs and 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 worthy of our distinguished history.

You will be comfortable running a live blog on breaking incidents as you are peeling back the curtain on the secret, hidden lives of people that have been forgotten about during the pandemic.

Outstanding trainees (with NCTJ prelims, including shorthand) will be considered alongside senior reporters. A driving licence is essential.

The Northern Echo and its associated titles are thriving with some of the fastest growing digital audiences and strongest circulation figures in the industry - but at our heart is amazing journalism you can trust. This is your chance to play a part in writing the next chapter of our history.

If this sounds like the job for you, email your CV and a brief covering letter to the editor at karl.holbrook@newsquest.co.uk by 8 March.
