We want you to be our next weekend business news fellow. It’s a position that comes with a level of freedom unique to an early-career journalism role. This is a weekend role, with a Wednesday-Sunday schedule.
Budding journalists don’t usually get the opportunity to tap into a global audience of more than 375 million readers – but Insider’s fellows do.
The Insider Fellowship Program provides two weeks of carefully-curated training in newsgathering, writing, and storytelling, after which fellows are considered fully-fledged members of our global reporting team.
Our fellows are paid an annual salary of £23,000, pro rata for the six months of the fellowship. When the six months are up, our fellows are primed for the next phase of their journalism careers.
As a weekend business news fellow, you’ll get three days a week to research and write the stories that matter to you and our audience. With guidance from our Weekend Editor, you’ll have the opportunity to dig around on hard-hitting investigations, research and write compelling features, interview leading lights from the world of business, and more.
For two days a week you’ll be a breaking news reporter, hitting the biggest stories of the day, immersed in the global news flow.
As such, we need a creative, self-driven, ambitious early-career journalist. The ideal candidate will be someone who is enthusiastic about writing a mix of articles including short posts, photo-based stories, interviews, and long-form features. We value original ideas.
Insider’s business division in London comprises a growing team of passionate, dedicated reporters and editors working across a number of desks. Our business verticals cover technology, retail, transportation, finance, careers, strategy, and more.
Insider is a global newsroom with offices across the world, including New York, Singapore, and London. We value teamwork, creativity, and open communication.
This fellowship is based in the UK and will last for six months from a start date in October 2022. You are welcome to work from our office in Old Street, central London, or remotely.
