    Incisive Media is an award winning information provider, serving a wide range of financial, business technology and professional services markets globally. An entrepreneurial and creative, digital-facing organisation on the cutting edge of media. 

     

    Channelnomics.com (https://www.channelnomics.com/) is the number one hub for the U.S. channel, providing the most important news and analysis affecting the reseller, distributor and vendor industries.  We are seeking a fast-learning, hard-working, imaginative reporter to join a two-strong team on Incisive Media’s growing site for the channel sector of the technology market. The ideal candidate will have 2-3 years’ experience in journalism. Knowledge of the sector is not essential, but a passion for business and building communities of professional readers is. Incisive Media prides itself on being able to develop editorial talent, with formal training as required, and support from senior executives. The company looks, where possible, to promote from within, and helps individuals build their careers. This is, therefore, an outstanding opportunity for an ambitious journalist to develop their skills, work autonomously and take on new responsibilities.
