Why choose Highland News & Media?

Highland News & Media Ltd (HNM) formerly SPP Media Group, is a privately-owned company producing eighteen newspapers covering Caithness, Sutherland, Ross-shire, Inverness-shire, Strathspey, Moray, Grampian and Aberdeen-shire.


The titles are managed at three newspaper centres based in Inverness, Elgin and Wick. Each office has a Content Editor, News Editor and Advertisement Manager whose task it is to represent the respective communities of each title and "fight their corner" and each title has editorial staff based in all communities.

The number of awards won by individual Highland News & Media papers and their staff proves they are doing just that. Not only do we provide local news and sport every week in our printed papers, our readers can view our titles online via our websites or digital editions.

HNM Mission Statement:

Impartial trusted local news, delivered in up-to-date print and digital formats, that informs, entertains and enriches people’s lives in the communities we serve.

HNM Values:

TRUSTED NEWS

Trust is at the heart of everything we do and we take pride in being a provider of trusted news and information to the communities we serve whilst recognising diversity of opinion and celebrating freedom of speech.

CHAMPIONS OF OUR COMMUNITIES

We stand up for and shine a light on our communities and all of their diversity; championing and celebrating everything good. We also highlight injustice and wrong, so improvements can be made and justice delivered.

PASSIONATE PROFESSIONALISM

We are committed to doing the right thing - even when no one is looking. Acting with integrity and professionalism is our baseline.

PARTNERSHIPS

By striving to work in partnership with other organisations and individuals, we will ensure that our results are significantly better than they would have been by working alone.

INNOVATION

We are not afraid to do things differently to ensure our activities provide the greatest benefit to the business and to the communities and customers we serve.

POSITIVE COLLEAGUE ENVIRONMENT

We believe in creating an environment that enables personal growth and professional development - and one which is conducive to the optimal work/life balance.

LISTENING

Great communication starts with listening. We recognise that listening to colleagues, readers and customers drives positive changes to the business.

PROFITABLE

We are focused on being a healthy profitable business, so we can deliver now and in the future for our stakeholders, whether they be readers, customers, colleagues or shareholders
