Weekly freelance shift on Prolific North

In under three years, Prolific North has established itself as the leading title for the media, creative and marketing sectors in the North.

Read by over 70,000 unique visitors a month, it has quickly become the go-to publication – online or off – for the latest news and in-depth analysis of the burgeoning industries that span digital, broadcasting, marketing and publishing. It has also spawned a highly successful series of events, including the Prolific North Awards, the Northern Marketing and Northern Digital Awards and the ground-breaking ProlificNorthLive expo.

We now have a rare opportunity for a proven freelance journalist to join our team on a one-day-a-week basis, editing the site each Wednesday.

You’ll have a background in news journalism, whether newspaper or trade press, and will be used to working quickly to produce between 10 and 15 stories each day. You’ll be based remotely and will be comfortable working under your own steam.

You’ll also be an accomplished writer, used to generating clean copy under pressure and able to quickly recognise news lines that would resonate with and interest our pan-industry readership. A background or specialist knowledge in business journalism or one of the sectors covered by the site would be an advantage.

Additionally, you’ll be well-connected generally in the North and able to contribute to the growing stream of original and exclusive content that Prolific North has become known for.

In return, you’ll receive a day rate above the industry average and become part of a growing business at the cutting edge of online business publishing.
