IMAGE Media is the premier destination for women curated by an award-winning team of writers with their finger on the pulse of Irish life. Join the IMAGE.ie editorial team as we enter a new era and help us tell the stories of Irish women. From style and wellness to interiors and politics, our goal is to reach every tuned-in woman in the country with our 360 degrees experiential, printed, social and digital offerings.

We’re looking for an enterprising news writer who can work in a fast-paced environment, has great attention to detail and is as passionate about Irish fashion designers as they are about breaking the gender ceiling. This position requires the successful applicant to work from home for a four-day week.

What you’ll do:

  • Write cutting-edge content online that is sharp, interesting and shareable
  • Supply reactive, well-written 3-4 stories per day with imagery – including original concepts and interviews – for IMAGE.ie
  • Take ownership of your own content by writing catchy social media posts to drive traffic and monitor site analytics and post performance
  • Work to monthly production and traffic goals
  • Represent IMAGE.ie at our events and on press trips when requested
  • Answer directly to the Digital Editor

 

What you have:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in journalism or a related field
  • 1+ years of digital-first content creation
  • Outstanding verbal and written communication skills
  • Solid understanding of social media landscape and tools
  • Basic analytics skills
  • Excellent people skills
  • A strong visual aesthetic
  • Attention to detail
  • Experience in Adobe Suite, video production or digital marketing a bonus

 

To be successful here you are:

  • Comfortable working in a busy, high-volume environment
  • Capable of punchy copy quickly and tidily to tight deadlines 
  • Agile enough to spot a great idea and pounce on it
  • Someone who enjoys working in an ever-changing environment
  • Happy to work from home for the foreseeable

 

Please send your CV and writing samples to [email protected] with the subject line “news writer application” by Monday, November 29, 2021.
