News Editor

Do you have experience on a news desk or in a fast-paced news environment? Do you have a nose for a story and a desire to get there first? And do you have a sense of what we find interesting and important at UnHerd?

As we expand our offer, we want to cover breaking news on the topics we pay attention to, new developments in the world of ideas and important stories that get inadequate attention in the mainstream.

The successful candidate will take responsibility for new sections of the site, new newsletters, and keep our diary and commissioning teams alert to what is going on.


  • Experience in a news environment (news desk on a newspaper, TV or online news)
  • Hunger to break a story first
  • Excellent news judgement
  • A good sense of UnHerd’s mindset, and what an ‘alternative news day’ might involve

Salary: Competitive depending on experience

Please note this role is UK based.
