Description

Courier is on the hunt for a talented and motivated London-based reporter to help drive our editorial coverage on the world of modern business. You’ll report on fascinating companies around the world – digging into how they work and why they matter – with authority, authenticity and attitude. Courier’s global coverage spans sectors, so you’ll be equally interested in cracking open the supply chain of a Chinese streetwear brand as you are curious about the profitability of a new French banking app.
The successful candidate will work on stories for Courier’s various editorial products – from our bimonthly print magazine and monthly newspapers to our weekly email newsletters, podcasts and more.
What you’ll do:
  • Research and report on fascinating brands, people and trends, producing exceptional stories to be featured across Courier’s print and digital products
  • Write with a high degree of confidence, insight, clarity and depth
  • Cultivate close relationships with companies, subject experts and PRs
  • Be Courier’s eyes and ears at industry events, always on the hunt for a good story
  • Establish yourself as a generalist in the world of modern business – and a specialist on a few specific beats
  • Work closely with the senior editors to help steer Courier’s overall editorial agenda
What you’ll bring:
  • A strong understanding of, and experience reporting on, small businesses, startups and consumer brands is highly preferred
  • A crystal clear idea of what constitutes a great Courier story
  • A self-starting personality and an eagerness to roll up your sleeves to develop sources and stories
  • Deep curiosity for uncovering the beating heart of a story
  • A healthy dose of skepticism and the ability to distinguish reality from hype
  • Excellent written English and spoken communication skills
  • Adaptability, a sense of humour, and the ability to thrive in a fast-growing media company
About Courier:
Courier is the defining media brand for a new generation who want to live and work on their own terms. We’ve been telling insightful and inspiring stories of modern business through print, podcasts, events and more since launching in 2013. London-based but with an international perspective, our mission is to help you: WORK BETTER, LIVE SMARTER, BE HAPPIER.
