Love the internet? Love using words? Love eating food?

Then you might just love this.

We’re looking for an experienced journalist to come on board and drive the content of Lovin Dublin on a day-to-day basis – bringing something brand new to the table, in terms of ideas, execution and structure.

Working closely with the Group Editor, you will be responsible for writing, managing contributors and our team of writers, sourcing stories, coming up with feature ideas that will make everyone go "WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT!", and writing headlines that are absolutely impossible to ignore on social media.

And there's more...

We communicate with our readers not only on our site but across our many social channels – so you'll also have a part to play in defining, developing and driving these as they continue to get bigger and better.

And finally, a particular focus for this role will be helping the Lovin Group to improve and optimise its news-gathering operation. So you'll work with the Group Editor to ensure we’re perfectly equipped to deliver the stories that matter to our audience – all in a prompt, timely, responsible and accurate fashion.

Oh, and there's food

Lots of food. Obv.

Here's a photo of burgers, just to get you in the mood.


The ideal candidate will have:

  • 2+ years experience in a digital newsroom, as a reporter or on a newsdesk;

  • An eye for a superb headline;
  • An understanding of digital journalism and distribution methods;

  • A strong legal/copyright knowledge;

  • An inquisitive mindset, and a finger on the pulse of Irish society;

  • An ability to edit with pinpoint precision, and spot mistakes at 50 paces.

So if all that sounds like you...
