Consumer Journalist

Want to be part of the most dynamic media company in the UK?  Are you looking to join a team where you can express yourself in an environment where change and growth are celebrated? If your answer is yes - then look no further.

At Dennis, we’re dedicated to creating brands that people want to work on and a culture that people want to work in and we want you to be part of the next success everyone’s talking about.  

Auto Express, Britain’s biggest-selling car title, is looking for a new Consumer Journalist to join its ranks.

What will you be doing?

As a Consumer Reporter, you’ll be working with the editorial team to produce innovative news stories, groundbreaking features, and unmissable consumer stories for the award-winning magazine and the fast-growing Auto Express website.

Who are we looking for?

  • You’re able to recognise what makes for a good story quickly and write clear, insightful and accurate news stories for both online and print.
  • You have an investigative mind and the ability to spot a story from a dense report or a large set of data. An innovative approach to coming up with news stories or a new angle on an existing story is essential.
  • You’re able to write features on a regular basis. It's important that you can write interesting and exciting features that range across a number of topics, such as spending a day with an ambulance crew to taking part in a road trip across Germany on electric power. Experience of how to conduct insightful interviews and understand what makes for a good feature that Auto Express readers will find useful is also key.
  • You’re able to handle reader enquiries and turn them into informative consumer stories in the Watchdog section of Auto Express.
  • You know what makes for good online content, with an understanding of SEO and keyword ranking
  • You have an interest in cars and the automotive industry. However, wannabe road testers need not apply!
  • A background in journalism is ideal, but more important is the ability for the candidate to be a team player and a quick and accurate newshound with an excellent standard of writing.

Why Us?

  • We’re award winning. You will be working across award-winning brands and in award-winning teams and joining a culture where innovation and success are encouraged.
  • Our Commitment. We’re very proud to work for the benefit of The Heart of England Forest; an exciting and ambitious charity aiming to plant and preserve the largest native broadleaf forest in England. Founded by our late chairman, Felix Dennis, every employee gets the chance to plant a tree in their name so you can feel part of our vision.
  • We’re always thinking of you. You’ll have access to plenty of great benefits such as 28 days holiday, a contributory pension scheme and discounted gym membership. There are also yoga and boot camp classes to get involved in if the gym membership is not enough.
  • We recognise hard work. Have you always dreamed of taking time out of work to travel the world? You’ll be given the opportunity to take a 6 week paid sabbatical after five years service. And if you’re lucky enough to win our Employee of the Year Award you’ll be sent on a holiday of a lifetime to the island of Mustique in the Caribbean.
  • We know how to have fun. Whether it’s swatting up for one of our pub quizzes, creating a costume for our famous fancy dress parties or taking part in a fitness challenge as part of our annual charity day - we can guarantee you will share the enjoyment of life at Dennis.
