Reporter (2 positions)

We are looking for talented, experienced and motivated journalists to fill two full-time positions with BarrieToday.com, a local news and information website serving Barrie, Ontario.

BarrieToday.com is part of Village Media’s rapidly expanding network of local news websites committed to quality, in-depth community journalism.

Our journalists are driven to find stories that matter to our community and are dedicated to fairness, accuracy and ethics.

The successful candidates for these positions are reporters who love to write about a wide variety of topics, and are motivated to engage the public on issues affecting the community, while exploring concepts like Solutions Journalism, and working to dig deeper than the day-to-day cycle of traditional news.

They know that a good interview is often a good conversation and know when to ask the tough questions, but also when to listen. The ideal candidate has exceptional writing skills and is willing to put in the extra effort and research to deliver an engaging story. They will also be passionate about their own photography.


  • Degree or diploma in journalism, or a related field;
  • Superior language, writing and editing skills;
  • Strong photography skills;
  • Some photography and associated editing software experience;
  • Able to work a variety of schedules, including evenings, nights and some weekends;
  • Excellent critical thinking and problem-solving skills;
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced environment and under pressure;
  • A valid driver’s licence and a reliable vehicle;
  • Willingness to relocate to Barrie, Ontario

If this sounds like the perfect position for you, we would love to hear from you!

To apply, please submit a cover letter stating you found this job on Jeff Gaulin's Job Board and resume, along with relevant samples of your work.
