I'm Noah Keate and welcome to my JournoPortfolio page.
Since February 2023, I have worked at POLITICO as a reporter for 'London Playbook', Britain's leading morning politics newsletter.
Between September 2022 and February 2023, I completed the NCTJ fast-track Multimedia Journalism Diploma at News Associates in Twickenham. I have written for a range of national publications including the Daily Mirror, Metro, Politico and Reaction.
From July 2022 and February 2023, I was an editor at the Backbench website, helping other writers craft their words. Between September 2022 and February 2023, I was also an editor at The Speaker website doing a similar role.
From 2019 and 2022, I read politics at the University of Warwick, graduating with a first (with honours).
While studying at Warwick, I wrote over 250 articles for The Boar, Warwick's award winning student newspaper, writing for every section. I also wrote for Perspectives, Backbench and Meridian and I presented shows broadcast on Warwick's student radio station 'RAW 1251AM'.
I've been involved with local print, online and broadcast journalism. I've written culture pieces for the Inside Cambridge website and EastLife magazine, as well as news pieces for Kenilworth Nub News and South West Londoner. I have also been a researcher for the community radio station 'Cambridge 105 Radio'.
I wrote a chapter in the book 'Prime Minister Priti...And other things that never happened', which was published in July 2021. I also contributed to LBC presenter Iain Dale’s book 'On this Day in Politics: Britain's Political History in 365 Days' by researching stories and writing first drafts of several chapters. The book was published in October 2022.
In July 2022, I undertook two weeks of work experience at Prospect magazine, fact-checking and proofreading numerous articles.
In August 2022, working for the Reaction website, I spent two weeks researching stories, writing articles and communicating with editors. From September 2022 to January 2023, I completed a weekly placement at Reaction, helping with the evening news email, political stories and promoting their articles on social media.
In August 2022, I completed a week of work at POLITICO helping the London team with research where my main task was to compile Liz Truss' promises made during the leadership campaign. Referencing was particularly important to ensure my findings were built on concrete evidence. The work experience was valuable for teaching me how long-term projects develop and come together when working independently as part of a team.
Technically, I am experienced using WordPress, PhotoShop, InDesign and Audacity. Furthermore, I am adept at driving a radio desk, thinking of timely pitches, communicating with editors, fitting a house-style and promoting my work on social media.
