Proud to be the Disasters Emergency Committee's first digital member of its Rapid Response Network
News is at the heart of what we do. We're driven by the need to help make news serve people better, because a healthy society needs a healthy news diet.
NewsNow exists to facilitate this, by publishing headlines linking to breaking and curated news from a diverse range of credible, independent and public interest news sources.
On the platform, people can discover new publications, weigh up differing presentations of the facts and viewpoints, and challenge their preconceptions, all as they make up their own minds.
We believe this helps make society better, but huge challenges remain. We must urgently move towards a future where public interest news and journalism is effectively funded by — and distributed for — the people it serves.
Struan Bartlett, Founder & CEO
With up to 1.4 million people in Britain experiencing gambling harms, we have a responsibility to our users to provide an environment suitable for all and we're committed to reducing the volume and density of gambling promotion.
For more than a decade we have operated tight restrictions on gambling advertising on our platform, and since at least 2014 have not accepted any gambling advertising whatsoever.
We also uphold strict policies on content we link to:
We do not link to gambling websites or sites whose business model is primarily based on the promotion of gambling
We do not accept articles with copy containing links to gambling websites, or primarily focused on betting odds
Excessive advertising of gambling services may result in headlines and publications being removed from NewsNow
It’s a long-term mission, which is why we value long-term relationships with our team members, who come from many different backgrounds, cultures and perspectives.
We have a flat management structure where initiative is prized, voices are heard, and efforts are rewarded. And while NewsNow is an exceptionally stable business, it still offers the excitement and involvement of a start-up.
We have the following fully remote vacancies. Learn more by visiting our careers page.
NewsNow makes it easy for people to discover content from all types of publishers, including those who are smaller and independently owned.
