Campaign Business Media Brand of the Year 2020
Travel Media Awards Trade Publication of the Year 2020 - Print & Online

Digital reporter, TTG Media

£Competitive

London, United Kingdom

TTG Media is seeking a Digital Reporter to join a fast-moving, fearless independent media business with an award-winning reputation in the travel industry and throughout B2B media.

 

Reporting to the News Editor, the individual will be joining a dynamic news team, which has led the way in trade media reporting of the Covid crisis and travel over the past 13 months.


Since forming to take over the Travel Trade Gazette in 2013, TTG Media has gone from strength to strength, growing across online, print and with outstanding events including the TTG Top 50 Travel Agencies and the TTG Diversity & Inclusion in Travel conference.

 

During 2020, TTG has also taken a leading role in online events in travel and tourism, running more than 70 events via our online platform InEvent, and also launching a new paid-for membership programme, TTG+, offering unique benefits to its members.

 

In 2019 TTG Media evolved to take on a whole new purpose and reason for being, establishing a new mission to promote a “Smarter, Better, Fairer” travel industry and a new look to the business, leading TTG to be named Campaign magazine’s Business Media Brand of the Year in 2020, and the PPA’s Independent Publishing Company of the Year in 2019.

 

In what we believe to be the most stimulating business sector in the UK today – and among a mutually supportive, driven and diverse team – the Digital Reporter role represents genuine opportunity for career growth and advancement, as so many others who have developed with TTG Media will attest.

 

Whilst the whole team is working from home at the moment, we look forward to at least a partial return to office working in central London later this year.
