Description:

The Concord Monitor, a digitally driven daily newspaper and website in New Hampshire’s state capital, is looking for an ambitious reporter who understands the critical role of local news and who wants to help forge the future of journalism. This job entails covering the city of Concord and criminal justice. The successful candidate should have daily writing experience, proficiency with social media, basic photo and video skills and an unflinching desire to get at the stories our readers need.
 
Our reporters are often recognized for their ability to tell meaningful stories that connect data and real people to the issues most affecting our readers and their communities. The ability to dig for new and fresh angles and an appreciation for accountability journalism are central to this role. 
 
In addition to daily reporting responsibilities, you’ll have an opportunity to work on enterprise and investigative stories as well as medium and long-term projects. You’ll work with editors to refine your craft, and you’ll get to do it all in a newsroom consistently recognized as among the best of its size in New England. 
 
The right candidate will have:

  • An appreciation for the vital role of community watchdog journalism and a willingness to jump into the fray.

  • An ability to work under tight deadlines with speed and precision. 

  • A desire to learn new skills and evolve with the industry. This can include digital infographics, locator maps, photography/video, searchable databases or anything you feel is vital to telling the story.

  • A hunger to be heard. Reporters have a big voice here, so we’ll need you to come to the table with ideas.
