Focus areas: Data Journalism and Interactives

The Journal is one of the most-read online news publications in Ireland. It’s a smart mixture of breaking news, original stories, and in-depth reporting which explains and gives context to the big news stories of the day. Our goal is to provide trusted, useful, agenda-setting news to a smartphone-first audience.

We are looking for someone who loves the news and who understands how to translate it into beautiful data. The successful Fellow will work with editors and reporters in the newsroom to originate and produce ways to visualise news stories and to tell new ones.

Covering both daily news and longer term pieces, you’ll source, sift and surface data to find and generate stories, as well as making quality infographics which can be included in articles and be shared on our social media channels. We want someone who believes that the story is often hidden in the data; and knows how to present it so the reader can see it too.

This will be a hands-on internship: you’ll be working with different editors and teams to get your work published each day. You will also have the opportunity to write news stories and pitch your own ideas for original stories.

We have a very strong track record with our internships. You will be fully trained by us in how our 24/7 newsroom works, from how to cover massive breaking news stories to using social media platforms to distribute your work, and everything in between.

Our ideal candidate will be an all-rounder who really loves the news and has examples of prior work that demonstrates their skills in data journalism. We’re flexible when it comes to specific technical skills - the most important thing is being able to tell great stories using data.

When: Flexible
