The New Today

The New Today is looking for an engaging and ambitious Reporter to join our team.

The role will predominantly consist of writing and compiling news stories.

The successful candidate will be expected to report on everything from local business news, community events, crime, human interest stories and local politics.

The role requires someone who is willing to get out and about as much as possible and is able to make good contacts.

You should have a great passion for news, and be aware that it happens 24/7, so an understanding that this isn’t a ‘normal’ office job is essential.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Attend virtual and in-person events and press conferences to cover stories and to build contacts.
  • Conduct thorough research, including interviews with key figures and sources by phone, video calling or face to face.
  • Delivering your articles to tight deadlines while maintaining the highest standards.

Knowledge and Skills:

  • Excellent writing, verbal and research skills.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills.
  • An inquisitiveness for delving into stories and a love of speaking to sources.
  • Good communication skills and demonstrated ability to work as an effective team member.
  • Flexibility and versatility in the role is vital.
  • At least one years’ experience in journalism, with a track record of published work.

We will consider trainee reporters looking for their first newsroom role but would also welcome senior Reporters.

To Apply: Please send a covering letter outlining why you believe you will excel in this role, your CV, and examples of your work to editor@thenewtodaygrenada.com.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
