The North’s Tech scene is booming, with almost 170,000 jobs now sustained by the region’s eight city tech clusters and nearly 2,000 startups born each year. Overall, the eight clusters have a combined GVA of £5.8bn, up from £4bn last year.

Prolific North already carries a considerable amount of tech coverage, but with the sector growing at such a rate, we’re now looking to take on additional resource in order to ensure we stay on top of latest news, as well as deepening and broadening our existing coverage.

We’re therefore looking for a Freelance Tech Writer, initially for the equivalent of five days a month but with the likelihood of a longer commitment as the position develops.

The ideal candidate will already be covering tech news or will have at least have experience in the sector. You’ll be tasked with covering the most significant latest news, from funding rounds and industry issues to startup interviews and technological developments.

You’ll become part of a company that has established itself in just four years as one of the leading media, marketing and creative brands in the UK.

A new Prolific North website is in the pipeline and unique visitors are up by over 30% year on year, and we anticipate reaching 100,000 unique visitors a month during 2017.

Prolific North is also behind several acclaimed awards events, straddling marketing and digital to eCommerce to Higher Education, and the Prolific North Awards is the largest regional creative industries award event in the UK.

More than 3,800 people recently attended the two-day Prolific North Live expo, and over the coming year we will be focusing more and more on the tech sector, starting with the first eCommerce Show North in October.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an interview, and examples of previous work/links are essential.
