Senior Reporter (C&IT)
The UK's leading international events title, C&IT (Conference & Incentive Travel), is on the hunt for a talented senior reporter to manage and produce content across its print, digital, and live channels.C&IT’s portfolio includes; a quarterly print magazine circulated to agency and corporate event planners, a website updated daily with news and features, regular email bulletins including the Daily News Tracker, and a growing roster of live events in the UK and Internationally.Job DescriptionThe primary task of the Senior Reporter is to plan and write educational and engaging content. Both short-form, industry-relevant news pieces and longer-form features that will drive audience engagement. The Senior Reporter should be able to adapt their style to suit print, online and report writing and understand audience data trends so that they can pursue the right topics to get the best results. C&IT has a playful and engaging tone but covers serious and thought-provoking topics, and so the individual should be able to balance the two.
In addition to exploring informative trends and topics, C&IT also produces inspirational content about hotels, venues and destinations across the world. An understanding, passion or familiarity with the travel industry would be helpful.
Above all we are looking for someone who has a hunger and passion to work on a small team and make a big difference. Someone who is proactive and has a good sense of what will interest readers. An individual that understands our commercial proposition but doesn’t compromise editorial standards. All of the expected skills of a journalist will be required; writing, interviewing, subbing, proofing, headlining and pitching. But given the nature of the industry we will also need someone who can attend evening events or travel abroad occasionally.
