Reporter

Courier is on the hunt for a talented and motivated reporter to help drive our editorial coverage on the world of modern business. This is an exciting opportunity to be a key editorial member in a fast-growing media startup.

You will cover new businesses, reporting on how they work and why they matter with authority, authenticity and attitude — but also a healthy dose of skepticism, with the ability to distinguish PR hype from real insight. Courier’s coverage spans sectors, so you will be equally interested in cracking open the supply chain of a streetwear brand as you are curious about the business model of a new fitness app.

What you’ll do:

  • Discover and write about emerging brands and business models
  • Oversee our email newsletter Courier Weekly
  • Edit the newsy ‘Now’ section of the magazine
  • Assist writing for our monthly newspaper Courier London
  • Be our eyes and ears at conferences and trade events
  • Work within the editorial team to help set the overall news agenda

What you’ll bring:

  • Passion for writing about new businesses in industries as diverse as fintech and fashion
  • At least 1 to 3 years experience working for a magazine, newspaper or similar media
  • Previous experience writing about startups, small businesses or consumer brands
  • A crystal clear idea of what constitutes the perfect Courier story
  • The ability to distill often complex ideas into fun and interesting stories
  • Excellent written and spoken communication skills
  • Adaptability, a sense of humour and a willingness to continuously learn and grow

This is a full-time position and is based at Courier’s headquarters in Spitalfields, east London. Salary commensurate with experience.
