You will be the representative of ITV’s digital output in some of the newsroom’s editorial meetings as well as providing feedback to the entire company about how our digital operation has performed each day.

The successful candidate will have to pitch story ideas, write and present an original daily news list, help plan further ahead, write news stories and drive the digital operation working with the Senior Digital Editor.

You will understand the fundamentals of audience engagement and data analytics. You will help manage the distribution of ITV News content on social media networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Google, on a daily basis. You will be responsible for helping to grow our audience on key strategic platforms. This role will contain shift work, including weekends, and a hybrid of home and office working.
