  • Full-Time

Are you a multimedia reporter who wants to change the world? Then you could be our next journalist at Pioneers Post.

The essentials:

  • Fixed-term contract for six months, with possibility of extension
  • Salary of £23k-£26k
  • Remote, based anywhere in the UK; strong candidates from outside the UK (but within an hour of GMT) will be considered for a freelance contract
  • Full-time (37.5 hours per week), but we will consider requests for flexible/part-time hours
  • Starting mid-September / beginning of October

Who are you?

You are probably just out of journalism school or have one or two years’ experience. Most likely you will be educated to degree level or equivalent and have some kind of practical journalism training or experience – perhaps postgraduate training or fast-track NCTJ qualification.

Whatever your qualifications, you will be bright, well-informed, have a strong nose for news and the ability to create strong angles and engaging stories in a variety of media, from written to podcast and video.

You will have excellent social media skills, and understand the role and importance of different types of social media in amplifying stories, building contacts and connecting to audiences.

You will be as interested in business and finance as you are in social policy, and as keen on numbers and data as you are in telling great human interest stories. You will have a genuine interest in – and ideally some knowledge of – the subject matter and audiences covered by Pioneers Post on a daily basis.

You will be positive, proactive, full of ideas and willing to muck in on all sorts of tasks with the rest of our small team – from scheduling social media posts and compiling our weekly newsletters, to big-name interviews and trips to cover conferences abroad.

Who are we?

Pioneers Post is the leading global news platform for mission-driven businesses, social entrepreneurs and impact investors. You could call us a ‘niche’ publication – but we think this is the way that business and society is heading. Founded more than 20 years ago, our readership has grown to reach almost 200,000 unique visitors annually from every part of the world.

As a social enterprise ourselves, we put 100 per cent of our profits back into delivering our social goal: to support the growth and development of social enterprise and impact investing, both in the UK and across the world. We are a small team (currently six people) on a big mission, committed to producing independent and entertaining journalism to share learning, challenge the status quo and support solutions that have a positive impact on people and planet.

In addition to our reporting, we also work with partners to produce events and awards – including the UK’s annual Social Enterprise top 100 (SE100), and Women in Social Enterprise (WISE) 100. We also deliver training in solutions journalism and storytelling to other journalists and social entrepreneurs.
