We’re looking to expand our team of writers, to better explain the unfolding news events to our audience.

Applicants should have a university level degree in either politics, economics or a relevant field of study and should be able to demonstrate relevant experience.

The successful applicant will be expected to pitch new video topics and write scripts for our EU and Global news channels, and as such will need to work efficiently and independently.

Ideally, applicants would be comfortable to appear on camera to discuss their videos and other topics on panel-style discussion episodes and our podcast. There is also a potential for applicants to take on hosting responsibilities – although this isn’t necessary.

As a growing company, each member of staff is sometimes expected to take part in activities and tasks that are not usually part of their work load. This can include rudimentary video and audio editing. While no experience is expected in this, the applicants should be happy to adopt a flexible workflow.

This is a full time role, with the successful applicant expected to work 40 hours a week. We operate under hybrid working model, the employee will expected to work in our office in central London at least three days a week.

We are particularly keen to receive a wide range of applications from people with diverse social, national, ethnic, gender and other backgrounds because lived experience and personal understanding of certain topics can be invaluable in the work we do.

As a politically neutral organisation, we ask that candidates disclose any affiliations they have with political parties. Affiliation is not, however, a disqualifying factor.

The successful applicant will be offered a salary between £35,000 and £45,000 (depending on experience).

TLDR News is a growing organisation which makes a wide range of digital content designed to inform a young audience about politics and current affairs. We aim to produce content that is trustworthy; politically neutral; and informative to people with no background in politics. Currently, we have 6 YouTube channels and release an average of 20 videos per week.
