Description

Broadcast Journalist wanted!

Do you want to work with an award-winning team covering news in Sussex and the Isle of Wight?

You will be joining our busy news team writing and reading bulletins for More Radio and Isle of Wight Radio.

You'll be writing online stories, reporting from the scene of breaking news, building contacts in the local community and creating great digital content for our online platforms.

You will also thrive on the challenge of delivering news that isn’t generated by press releases.

A sound knowledge of media law is crucial, as well as an understanding of creating content for maximum social media reach and engagement - you’ll be passionate about current affairs and take a keen interest in the stories making the local, national and international news. We are looking for someone with a great writing style who understands the difference between writing for the web and writing for broadcast and boasts a keen eye for detail and accuracy.

You’ll need to work shifts and be prepared for the occasional anti-social hours!

In return, we can promise some glorious beaches, great ice cream and some beautiful places to visit when you’re not at work.

The successful candidate will need to be living on the Isle of Wight or in Sussex (or be willing to move to one of the two areas). A full, clean UK Driving Licence is preferable.

Ready for the challenge? Please send a CV, short cover letter and a demo (MP3 or WAV file) to claire.john@totalsensemedia.co.uk Closing date for applications is March 31st 2021
