The two vibrant newspapers - and associated website - are based in the market town of Spalding and we can promise you'll never be bored! We are proud to be at the heart of the communities we serve and have a strong readership in print and online.
The successful candidate will be highly motivated, have strong news-gathering skills and be able to work effectively under pressure to meet deadlines.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a news team which works hard to cover issues close to the hearts of the communities it serves. The successful candidate will be able to focus clearly on issues that hold the interest of our readers and be keen to build relationships. They will bring in stories, be good with people and have a friendly telephone manner.
Flexibility with time is necessary to ensure meetings and events are covered. A full UK driving licence is also required.
We offer a competitive salary and all the benefits you would expect from a progressive media company.
We will consider applications from senior reporters who have proved their mettle elsewhere and exceptional trainees who can prove they've got what it takes to become part of our team.
Iliffe Media is a growing independent company with a proud history in local media and a keen eye on the horizon. We think the printed newspaper is as important as its digital future, but it has to be local and relevant. The company is investing in products, people, and local offices. We’re now the leading local newspaper publisher in this area and we do things differently to most other publishers.
This is your opportunity to be part of a success story. If you think you would fit in well, send a covering letter and your CV to email@example.com no later than Friday, July 5, 2019.
