Mirror Online has an opening for a Showbiz Reporter to join our team. Sound like the dream role? You wouldn't be wrong!

We're looking for someone who lives and breathes the celebrity world and can bring our readers the latest 'OMG' news that our online readers come to us for every day.

This role will suit an experienced showbiz reporter who has worked within a national digital newsroom/ magazine previously before, has strong contacts in the industry, and is able to break the hottest exclusives.

Please note this position involves shift work, including overnight shifts due to the nature of the role, with some home-working flexibility too.

So, who are we?

Reach plc is home to the UK and Ireland's most iconic digital platforms, magazines and newspapers. From the Mirror, Daily Express and OK!, to our regional titles such as the Liverpool Echo, BirminghamLive and the Manchester Evening News (plus lots more), our brands and the stories we cover are as varied as our people.

We help all kinds of people share experiences through our stories because we believe this is what makes us human. Oh, and we should probably also mention that with a monthly readership of 47 million people, Reach is the largest commercial publisher in the UK. At Reach, not only will you feel better understood, you will also feel you understand other people better too.

Key Responsibilities

What will the role involve:

As a Showbiz Reporter, every day will be different. You'll be responsible for delivering high-quality, accurate, well-researched news pieces, written in engaging and creative ways. You'll be required to lead evening shifts and step up to take over the deputy duties when needed.

You'll handle breaking news, update social media, interview at red carpet events and stay on top of media law and industry guidelines. Working hours may vary, so you will need to be flexible and a team player.

The Ideal Candidate

Who are we looking for:

Whether it is ballgowns, break-ups or baby bumps, you're always in the know. You're clued up on celeb news from around the globe, with a particular interest in the UK and the US. If it's on TV, you're watching it and if it's breaking news, you broke it.

You're first to arrive, you scoop up the exclusives and your storytelling abilities are hard to beat. A fantastic copywriter who works quickly and accurately, you make connections, build strong relationships and gather stories up with ease.

You're creative, you're passionate and you're ready to take the next step in your showbiz reporting career.
