Why join us?
We need professionals who can help us take a thoughtful and authentic approach to storytelling and to find the human angle. Our content strategy will focus on finding innovative ways of reaching out and engaging our audience. Stories will be tailored for each platform to optimise engagement and interaction with the audience and to enrich content with their reaction, thoughts and creativity.
TRT World will differentiate from the crowded and competitive landscape of global news through our focus on newsgathering and fresh perspectives on the day’s events. Our “field first” approach means we will deploy our journalists to the heart of the story, breaking news on a global basis and bringing our audience closer to the event.
