This is a fully paid fellowship opportunity, with an annual salary of £24,000 and a 6-month contract from June through December 2023. We have offices in Old Street and are working on a flexible basis; you are welcome to come in, or work remotely.

This role has a working schedule Wednesday-Sunday, with Monday and Tuesday off.  

The ideal candidate is someone with an intense interest in general news and who is happy in a fast-paced environment. This person should be particularly enthusiastic about US and international news, and the prospect of working with Insider’s bureaus around the world.

Responsibilities include spotting and covering news events as they unfold as well as driving major stories forward. There is also scope for pursuing longer features and investigations.

The ideal candidate has:

  • A passion for news (with a focus on US and international news)
  • A journalism background and some experience of news reporting online
  • An ability to write quickly and accurately
  • A self-starter attitude and excellent organisational skills
  • A love of Insider and what we do
  • A desire to work as part of a global team in a fast-paced environment

The Insider Fellowship Program is for early career journalists who want to spend six months learning from a newsroom full of passionate, dedicated journalists. Fellows are assigned to teams and become experts in digital storytelling. They produce real work that is distributed to our audience of millions, and by the end of six months, they are prepared for the next phase of their journalism careers.

Are you passionate about this opportunity, but worried that you don’t have 100% of the experience we’re looking for? We still want to hear from you! Apply online and let us know why you would make a great addition to the Insider community.
