Senior Reporter REF#: JG31445
Town & Country This Week
Location: Westlock, Alberta
Posted: July 5, 2021


Town & Country This Week, which now covers the regions previously served by the Westlock News, Barrhead Leader and Athabasca Advocate, is looking for either a senior reporter, or a general reporter. The position will be based in Westlock.
Great staff are rewarded and coveted, so if you excel, advancement within the chain is possible. Most of the reporters who have passed through the Westlock office over the last two decades have gone on to daily newspapers, magazines, communications position within government, or have advanced within the chain.
The Westlock area has a total population of roughly 12,000 (5,000 in town, and 7,000 in the county) and is ideally located just 45 minutes north of Edmonton. The News is part of the Great West Media chain; a group that includes newspapers such as the St. Albert Gazette, Rocky Mountain Outlook and Okotoks Western Wheel.  


You’ll need to have a journalism degree, or diploma, a vehicle and a lot of energy. Previous experience as a reporter, if applying for the senior reporter position, is necessary. New grads will be considered for the general reporter position.

Salary will be based initially on experience and, quite frankly, how good one’s work is throughout the three-month probation period. That said, we are more than competitive salary-wise versus other weekly newspaper chains throughout Alberta and offer a good medical and benefits package.

Please no out-of-country applicants.

Interested candidates should send resume and cover letter - stating you found this job on Jeff Gaulin's Journalism Job Board - to:
