We’re recruiting a deputy editor

The West Leeds Dispatch is growing. Since we started in 2015 as an independent and community-led online newspaper, we have brought almost 5,500 articles to thousands of readers each day, writes Anne Akers.

We’ve trained dozens of community reporters and recently launched a pilot print edition.

Our editor John Baron has been meeting himself coming backwards with all the West Leeds stories from Armley, Bramley, Burley, Calverley, Farnley, Farsley, Kirkstall, Pudsey, Rodley and Wortley – he needs help!

Community reporters at New Wortley Community Centre.

So we’re looking for a volunteer deputy editor who will help John with the writing, editing and generally supporting the West Leeds Dispatch. You’ll need to have some skills and experience in writing and editing and be able to deputise.

You’ll be supported by our board and team of community reporters and become part of a growing community media organisation.
