Sun recruiting 16 journalists

The new journalists will be working exclusively on the Sunday edition of The Sun; the UK’s biggest selling Sunday paper.

The hiring of new staff comes after Dan Wootton, the former showbiz editor at News of the World, joined The Sun on a Sunday. Wootton’s team will hire two new showbiz reporters as part of the recruitment.

Other roles to be filled at the paper include four senior news reporter posts, four news reporters, one senior features writer, three features writers, a southern spot reporter and a Manchester-based north-west sports reporter.

In a statement News UK said: “We are looking to build on the success of The Sun’s Sunday edition and are therefore searching to find the cream of the journalistic crop as we look to hire 16 new editorial staff to work exclusively on our Sunday paper.

“We will be recruiting talented journalists who will bring fresh energy, skill and new ideas to our newsroom of world-class reporters, writers and editors. There are excellent opportunities on our news, showbiz, sports and features desks.”

Editor of The Sun, David Dinsmore, added: “We are passionate about supporting and creating jobs so I am delighted that we can offer these new posts to talented people who will drive the success of The Sun on a Sunday to even greater heights.”
