Who wants to go to Hull?

Northcliffe is advertising again on HoldtheFrontPage for subs to join its new production hub in Hull, (see ad above) with a closing date of June 19.
HoldtheFrontPage reported in March that Northcliffe was advertising for new production staff for the Hull hub because too few of its existing staff opted to make the move.
Plans for two central subbing sites in Hull and Nottingham were announced by Northcliffe in February. But HTFP said most of the subs based at the Lincolnshire titles - the Grimsby Telegraph, Scunthorpe Telegraph and Lincolnshre Echo have decided not to apply for new roles at the Hull centre. For Lincolnshire Echo subs the move would mean a 90-mile round-trip.
The Sunday Times has already speculated that the Hull Daily Mail might be on the move to Johnston Press, if a regional newspaper shake-up follows an anticipated relaxation of the media takeover rules. The Daily Mail is seen as a good fit with JP's Yorkshire titles.
