The hires include Brendan Cole, who joins as night editor; Matt Atherton, science and health reporter; as well as two news sports reporters – George Flood and Joshua Evans; three new reporters – James Tennent, Paul Wright, and Harriet Sinclair; and Alex Wheeler, who joins as picture assistant.
All will be based out of IBT Media’s growing newsroom in London’s Canary Wharf.
“These are young, ambitious journalists who are well-versed in today’s multi-channel and rapid-fire digital news landscape and I am delighted to welcome them all to our rapidly growing newsroom. We are constantly working to develop our talent further and are absolutely committed to nurturing their growth, through further exposure and training on the field,” said Julian Kossoff, managing editor, International Business Times (UK).
“The 70 per cent growth in readership we have seen in the past year alone is down in no small part to the investment in quality editorial that we have already made,” added Kossoff, who said that the newly redesigned ibtimes.co.uk website is providing the ultimate platform for the new talent.
“It’s energetic and driven journalists like these who lie behind our success in connecting millions of inquisitive minds over six continents,” he added.
