The Barrhead Leader, an award-winning weekly community newspaper located approximately 120 km northwest of Edmonton, Alberta, has an opening for a sports/news reporter to join our 2-person newsroom.
The Barrhead Leader is part of the Great West Newspaper chain; a group that includes newspapers like the St. Albert Gazette, St. Paul Journal and Rocky Mountain Outlook. Great staff are rewarded, so if you excel, advancement within the chain is possible.
Salary will be based initially on experience and, quite frankly, how good your work is during the three-month probation period. That said, we are competitive salary-wise versus other weekly newspaper chains throughout Alberta and offer a good medical and benefits package.
