The Know is on a mission to help people start their day feeling informed and hopeful, and we’re looking for an excellent writer to produce our newsletters and translate some of this content to our social media platforms.

The perfect candidate for this role will thrive in a start-up environment, work well independently and feel confident writing the must-cover stories for our audience in line with our ethos. They will also have a passion for news and social media, and be great at simplifying complex issues under time pressure.

Responsibilities include writing our daily (Monday-Friday) newsletters in our distinctive tone of voice, selecting stories that fit our ethos and interest our demographic. This will require a 7:30am start and an ability to thrive under tight deadlines, as our newsletter goes out by 9am. You will also be required to pitch and write 1-2 original guides per month for our website, help the team with designing Instagram posts on Canva, and produce content that introduces our clients’ products and brands to our audience in an authentic way.

Requirements: You’re passionate about writing, engaging people with the news and have a strong understanding of how best to connect with our largest demographic (women in the UK aged 25-45). You’re aligned with our mission of creating succinct news summaries in a neutral, jargon-free and non-sensationalist way. You can recognise and amend phrasing that might feel emotionally charged or land insensitively with our audience. You’re able to work under tight deadlines and to a high level of detail. You can efficiently execute new initiatives with little guidance and thrive in a startup environment. You’re confident with using digital platforms like Canva, newsletter platforms, Squarespace and social media. You have demonstrable journalism experience (bylines in well-known publications and a qualification would be a plus).

Applications close Sunday 7 April at 23:59. We’re looking to fill this role ASAP so early applications are encouraged.
