Job opportunity at NS Tech: Reporter

We are hiring a reporter to cover the intersection of technology, business and politics for NS Tech.

You’ll be working for NS Media Group, the publisher of the New Statesman magazine and website as well as a range of other B2B and B2C publications.

It’s an exciting time to join the business, as we’re transitioning from a traditional publishing group to one that combines journalism, data and technology.

The business already employs 250 people and we are looking to bring in an extremely fast-growing team of world-class journalists and entrepreneurially-minded people.

We are looking for people who have a keen interest in creating – as Melvyn Bragg wrote of discovering the New Statesman in his school library –  “a window on the great world”, and have the skills to craft and tell stories that shape that world.

This is a compelling role for someone with some journalism experience, or a recent graduate, with useful work experience, who is looking to break into the sector.

Your responsibilities will include identifying news stories, writing features and newsletters, and providing engaging and accurate analysis across the sector. You will report on select committees, government technology deals, industry lobbying, cyber security, artificial intelligence, managed service providers and technology policy.

We want people who can build lasting relationships with civil servants, politicians and technology executives, are hungry for a scoop, and have a demonstrable interest in technology, business and politics. If you know a thing or two about data journalism, all the better.

Please send a copy of your CV, a cover letter and two examples of your written work to oscar.williams@newstatesman.co.uk.

The deadline for applications is 31 January.

Salary: competitive.
