Florida Times-Union

Growth and Development Reporter
 We are looking for a growth and development reporter with good news instincts, strong watchdog skills, an ability to spot trends and a curiosity about what is going up and coming down around town to join our team at the Florida Times-Union/ Jacksonville.com in Jacksonville, Fla., a city with no shortage of news stories. This reporter will report on a variety of issues, trends and breaking news stories, but they will primarily focus on covering growth and development issues in Northeast Florida. The ideal candidate will quickly build a diverse group of sources throughout the community to help them spot unique developments, understand trends and dive into complex issues that come with a growing city. This reporter will need to come up with their own story ideas, and also be able to juggle those with ones assigned by editors. They will produce a mix of breaking news, weekend enterprise and longer-term projects in traditional story formats and also with photos, video and alternate story forms. This reporter will be active in promoting their own stories on social media and engaging with readers to answer additional questions. This reporter will coordinate well with editors, photographers, digital producers and other reporters to help produce great journalism on deadline.
