Ted Jeory joined the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in January 2015 as Deputy Editor.
He started his career as an accountant. His move into journalism began at the East Anglian Daily Times, then the East London Advertiser where he became deputy editor and was the Press Gazette Reporter of the Year in 2008.
He then spent six years at The Sunday Express as Whitehall Editor and Home Affairs Editor, was responsible for the paper’s award-winning mental health campaign in 2012, and was latterly the Digital News Director for both The Sunday Express and The Daily Express.
In his spare time Ted writes the Trial by Jeory blog on the politics of Tower Hamlets in east London. He was nominated for the Paul Foot Award for his blogging work in 2013. BBC’s Panorama came knocking next and it screened a documentary into the borough and its mayor, Lutfur Rahman, in March 2014. Allegations centring on the council’s grants process prompted Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, to send in emergency auditors four days after the programme was aired.
