The Scarborough News and its associated titles on the Yorkshire coast are looking to recruit ready, willing and able journalists for two key positions.

We are part of JPI Media Publishing Ltd, a leading media company in the UK with brands including Yorkshire Post and The Scotsman.

Our coastline is renowned for its beauty, beaches, friendly folk and relaxed way of life – but it’s a very newsy patch! The Scarborough office is in a handsome historic building a stone’s throw from the seafront.

We are recruiting a Senior Reporter, on a part-time basis. This flexible-working role is for three days a week, or equivalent. Remote or hybrid working may be considered, depending on the candidate.

You’ll be a dab hand at finding, researching and writing anything from a splash to a long-read feature, and will know how to produce the stories our readers care about, from human interest and community news to investigations, court stories and data journalism. You’ll have solid writing skills, digital and social media know-how and shorthand proficiency.

Whether you’ve recently become NCTJ qualified or have many years of experience, we’d love to hear from you. Ideally you’ll have worked in a newspaper or online news environment, and have a good knowledge of our area.

Excellent communication skills, ideas galore and the ability to write clean, accurate copy are musts.
