Archant is launching a new team of business journalists with a focus on the energy sector. The team will be led by a new business and energy editor, and will also hire special apprentice journalists.
The Norwich-based company is also planning on launching new digital products around the energy sector with the aim of becoming “the leading voice for a registered and subscriber-based audience”.
Archant is also hiring for a specialist business reporter as part of the new effort.
Archant’s chief content officer Jeremy Clifford said:
“This is a new opportunity for us to create something quite different and to work closely with the energy sector in helping readers and the wider public to understand the rapidly changing energy climate and how the east of England will be at the forefront of helping to solve the country’s energy supply problems.
“Our new team will become experts in this field.
“We have already held a successful energy summit with the leading suppliers and agreed to work together on a number of major initiatives as their investment projects come on stream.
“This will be a new way of working for our journalists and we are looking to recruit a real leader who can shape the way forward.”
