Current job vacancies at our office in Birmingham, West Midlands:

Photographers

Caters are on the hunt for self-starting, eager and determined photographers with an eye for a picture and a positive attitude.

This is a rare opportunity to join our talented team in Birmingham, UK and work for an international photo agency with a proven track record in providing creative content to media both in the UK and worldwide.

Candidates need to be as comfortable composing feature shots as they are at court snatches, as well as being able to generate and source other picture content.

If you have a strong news sense, a ‘can do’ nature and can create your own picture ideas then we want to hear from you.

Own car and clean diving licence are essential but camera kit will be provided for the right candidate.

The ideal person will have experience at an agency or at least on a UK regional paper, excellent communication skills and an ability to work well under pressure. Applications from exceptional entry-level photographers are also welcome.

All candidates must be eligible to work in the UK.

Please email jobs@catersnews.com, sending in a CV and a link to some examples of your work.

Reporter

Our busy news desk is expanding, and we’re looking for a brilliant reporter to join the team at our main office in Birmingham, UK.

At Caters, our journalists fill the pages of national newspapers with top-quality stories every day, covering everything from hard breaking news to the offbeat tales that get people talking.

We’re looking for a real ‘people-person’ who can start up a conversation with anyone, and get even the most reluctant interviewee to open up.

You’ll need to be switched on enough to spot a great story, and ambitious and determined enough to make sure you’re the first person to get that story.

In addition to covering breaking news, successful candidates will be expected to generate their own ideas, so being a creative self-starter is a must.

We want someone who can hit the ground running, who’s not afraid to get stuck in.

Our content appears in every UK national newspaper – and our first-class worldwide syndication department means that our journalists’ work ends up in publications all over the world – from Germany to the USA, Australia, and beyond.

Dozens of our staff have gone on to be head hunted by national newspapers – there’s no better place to make a name for yourself in journalism.

If you’re a switched-on, creative, passionate and ambitious journalist who wants to see your stories published in media outlets across the globe, then it’s the ideal opportunity. Candidates need to have an NCTJ qualification, as well as their own transport and a clean driving licence.

As with all the best jobs in journalism, having a thick skin and a sense of humour is also helpful. Clock-watchers need not apply.

The ideal candidate will have experience at an agency or on a regional paper, but applications from exceptional entry-level reporters are also welcome.

Apply with your CV and salary expectations to jobs@catersnews.com.

– Improve news and feature writing

– Build an impressive portfolio of work

– Gain an excellent understanding of how print media works

You will be capable of talking to and interviewing clients, as well as writing insightful and inspirational real-life features for publication in tabloid newspapers and women’s magazines.

Candidates need to possess good writing skills and impressive attention to detail. A confident and friendly telephone manner is a must.

The new recruit to our features team will need to demonstrate initiative, work well to deadlines/targets, show ambition and must have a thirst for finding great stories.

All applications, with current CV and salary expectations, should be emailed to jobs@catersnews.com
