V3 is seeking a technology reporter to work on its fast-paced, industry leading website. V3 is a UK site covering business technology news, analysis, video and reviews for IT professionals, so a passion for IT and the tech scene are crucial for this role.
The role is a paid editorial internship based on a rolling temporary contract. We're looking for someone who can work full-time based in our central London office, so you'll get plenty of opportunity to gain experience and hone your skills across all areas of digital journalism, covering content, social and SEO, while working as part of the established V3 team.
As technology reporter, you will write news, analysis, features and blogs, and attend events in London, the UK and across the world. You'll also be working towards taking responsibility for our community and social media presence, and supporting our SEO efforts.
While we don't expect you to already be an SEO expert, having a broad understanding of the discipline and how it can be applied to an online technology news site will be an advantage. You'll be able to pick up tips and tricks on the job, but you'll need to be a quick learner and have excellent organisational skills.
This is a great opportunity for someone looking to take on their first full-time role in journalism, with plenty of scope for growth, development, training and fun too.
