Reach To Hire For 76 New Sports Journalism Roles

Reach announced this week that it is currently recruiting for 76 new roles across its national and regional sport network.

The news follows Newsquest’s announcement of a major recruitment drive to hire 50 new digital sales consultants and a £1.5 million investment in 50 new digital local journalist roles in its markets across the UK.

Reach’s expansion comes as part of a continued company-wide investment in its digital editorial teams, with several teams currently recruiting, Reach said.

Jon Birchall, audience and content director (sport), said: “We’re so proud of what the team has achieved this year. Now we want to bring more views, a wider range of expertise and more round the clock coverage on both our national and regional brands.

“Our ambition is to not only continue to serve our readers, viewers and listeners but also attract new fans and communities. We can only do this with a diverse team and encourage applications from people with a love of sport, even if they think they don’t fit the traditional mould. We can’t wait to hear from new, exciting voices in the industry.”

All sports roles are currently live on the Reach Careers site. Prospective candidates who would like an informal chat about any of the roles are encouraged to email
