Our People

The Bureau’s team consists of full-time reporters, data journalism specialists and editors, led by our managing editor Rachel Oldroyd.

Our staff range from experienced journalists, academics and researchers who have spent years doing investigations to young reporters near the start of their careers. Some of us have been foreign correspondents in the Middle East, Afghanistan and the Americas. Others are world experts on the US's covert drone wars, CIA rendition and the secret state. Between us we have vast experience of national and local print, radio, television, online and new media.



In addition to these members of staff and regular contractors, the Bureau also works with experienced freelancers. These have recently included Alice Milliken, a freelance multimedia journalist and researcher, Rob Minto, who works regularly for Bureau Local as an editor, Callum Adams, now investigations reporter at the Daily Telegraph, Josh Robbins, the Bureau's Google Fellow in 2016 and Jasmine Andersson, our NCTJ diversity fellow in 2017.

If you would like to apply for an internship at the Bureau, please be aware that these are for three weeks only, unpaid, and you must be in full-time journalism-related education and seeking experience here as part of your education. Contact [email protected], with a CV, for further information.


The Bureau has a board of directors and an editorial advisory committee. Information about their roles and composition can be found here.
