Job Introduction

BBC Radio Guernsey is looking for a talented journalist to join the team.  We may be small but we have big ambitions, broadcasting to diverse audiences in Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm. The Channel Islands are not part of the UK or EU, they are self-governing Crown Dependences. Even if we say so ourselves, Guernsey has to be one of the best places to live and work and you’re never more than twenty minutes from a beach!

We’re looking for a strong all-rounder. You’ll have experience in setting up and producing great radio but you might also be skilled in news-reading or reporting – maybe both!  Creativity is really important – you’ll have the ability to tell stories from across the Bailiwick in a creative and dynamic way that engages our audience.

You’ll be a good team player and you’ll be brimming with ideas on news stories to share with your colleagues and our audience. You’ll also have the ability to recognise how we can share those stories in a variety of ways, not just on the radio, but on social media as well.

For an informal chat about this opportunity, please contact Executive Producer, Michelle Daniel ( 

Salary within band plus additional annual Channel Islands Weighting allowance:


Main Responsibilities

  • Find content to engage audiences for live and on demand audio and social media.
  • Research, write, assemble, edit and deliver outputs in the appropriate medium, to the highest professional standards.
  • Will be required to comply programmes to fit with editorial and legal guidelines.
  • Exercise judgment in developing story ideas and producing accurate and impartial journalism.
  • Be organised, able to plan original ideas as well as working to briefs and work to deadlines.

Are you the right candidate?

To undertake this role successfully, you will need to demonstrate the following key criteria;

  • You will have knowledge and experience of live and on demand audio skills that can be applied to news gathering and story telling
  • Ideally you will have newswriting and reading experience, however these skills can be developed in the role.
  • You will have experience of finding high impact content and sharing it with a wide audience.
  • You will be comfortable working as part of a team and on own initiative and working to tight deadlines
  • You will demonstrate knowledge of the Bailiwick of Guernsey and its stories.

We particularly want to ensure that we reflect the people of Guernsey and the audiences we serve, and we encourage applications from underrepresented groups for this role.
