As we start our 20th year in business, Newsdirect is looking to hire two subject specialists to expand our Edinburgh team.  We are interested in hearing from candidates with knowledge of the education/skills agenda and the health policy landscape in Scotland.  

Our monitoring team tracks all the crucial sources of parliamentary, government and political news with a particular focus on the devolved institutions. 

What makes us different? We are putting innovative technology in the hands of our political experts and creating a service that’s second-to-none in our sector.  We keep clients updated on a weekly, daily and hourly basis, ensuring that they are the best-informed on all the issues that matter.  With Newsdirect on board, our clients get time to focus on the craft of public affairs, not the search for glue and scissors.

We are looking for individuals with policy insight, news judgement and great communication skills.   Our team will provide all the training you’ll need, but we’d especially love to hear from candidates with prior experience of a live news environment or in the provision of public affairs support.
