East Anglian Daily Times, Ipswich Star and the Mercury series are just some of the strong local brands that you have the opportunity of working with in this copy-focused opportunity based in our offices in Ipswich.

We are looking for an efficient, speedy and accurate text inputter to input large quantities of contributed editorial copy into our editorial CMS system, such as readers‘ letters, district news, handwritten football reports, results and league tables. You will need an aptitude for learning new systems quickly, as you will be using our CMS system to create packages and file content.

The ability to prioritise work will be key in order to meet our various publication deadlines. Some copy will need to be taken over the telephone, so good customer service skills will also be required.

  • Have a thorough knowledge of MS Word, Outlook & Excel
  • Be self-motivated and manage time effectively
  • Be able to prioritise work to precise deadlines
  • Be able to cope with pressure
  • Have a confident telephone manner

Excellent communication and IT skills are key to this role, and you need to be available to cover each other’s holidays.

We offer 5 weeks annual leave pro rata, contributory pension and life assurance scheme (after qualifying period) and all the benefits of working for a large media organisation. The salary will be £17,500 per annum, pro rata (i.e. £10,500).
