The Sun is hiring 16 editorial staff to work exclusively for the Sunday newspaper.

A press release from The Sun states: "We will be recruiting talented journalists who will bring fresh energy, skill and new ideas to our newsroom of world-class reporters, writers and editors.

"There are excellent opportunities on our news, showbiz, sports and features desks."

Editor of The Sun, David Dinsmore, said in the release: "It is an extraordinarily exciting time to be joining the team at Britain's best-selling newspaper.

"We are passionate about supporting and creating jobs so I am delighted that we can offer these new posts to talented people who will drive the success of The Sun on a Sunday to even greater heights."

Applications open today and close on 21 August.

Last week The Sun website went behind a paywall. The tabloid launched Sun+, charging £2-a-month for digital access which includes a football app called Goals.

Readers of the newspaper can use a unique code inside the paper to access the website and apps.
