A journalist, writer and editor with more than 15 years' experience, Nick Mitchell has covered news and culture in a variety of roles.
He launched NationalWorld.com in 2021, becoming its first editor and building a team that’s based across the UK and beyond. The news title has gone from strength to strength, growing a large audience and winning multiple awards. He is responsible for editorial strategy and audience development, as well as supervising on data journalism, investigations, video, podcasts and e-commerce.
He writes regularly on topics like politics, culture, tech, sustainability and inequality, often for the weekly editor’s letter edition of the NationalWorld newsletter, which goes out on a Saturday.
He is also always open to pitches on articles where there’s unique insight or genuine expertise, whether it’s first person, opinion, news analysis or a feature idea.
Nick got his first break in the media at The Scotsman in 2007 while still working towards his journalism diploma. After working across several desks, Nick embraced his passion for digital journalism on the scotsman.com team, where he won Digital Journalist of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards. After covering everything from the financial crisis and the election of Barack Obama to the rise of Andy Murray and Scotland's indie music scene, he moved up to the position of Deputy Digital Editor and helped shape the title’s early forays into social media.
Nick then moved into senior roles within JPI Media, and was launch editor for the i's website, iNews.co.uk, in 2016 - a site which has gone on to establish itself in the UK's digital news landscape.
Outside of the day job, he's passionate about film, music and football - as a long-suffering Raith Rovers fan - and likes to get out for a run or a cycle when the Scottish weather allows.
