Job Introduction

BBC Radio Jersey may be small in stature but huge in ambition.  Even if we say so ourselves, Jersey has got to be one of the best places to live and work.  You're never more than ten minutes from the sea and we have some of the best beaches in the British Isles. And now we’re looking for experienced Journalists to join our team and work a variety of reporting, producing and bulletin reading shifts. We’re looking for someone to look after the production of our weekend breakfast shows and to read our bulletins on Saturday and Sunday.

Main Responsibilities

We’re looking for an experienced journalist who is never short of engaging, original ideas and who is comfortable working to tight deadlines.

You’ll write and read bulletins, produce programmes, report and be comfortable making informed editorial decisions.

The role will primarily work to our radio output, but you will be multiskilled and there may be the chance to report for digital and TV too.

Are you the right candidate?

You will ideally already be working in radio or television, with the skills and confidence to undertake on-air duties.

  • You’ll want to be part of a working environment where we celebrate trying to do things differently, where we innovate and where we have FUN!
  • You’ll have excellent news writing and reading skills and be able to distil complex information into relevant and easy to understand radio.
  • You’ll have first class news judgement and know which stories and topics are important to audiences in the Bailiwick of Jersey.
  • You’ll approach every day with energy and creativity and look for engaging ways to tell familiar stories.
  • You’ll be armed with a range of contemporary production and storytelling techniques.
  • You’ll be calm under pressure and confident managing your time to meet tight deadlines.
  • You’ll be equally comfortable being a self-starter, to working in a team and taking direction from producers and Senior Journalists. You’ll know when to refer up too.
  • You’ll look to develop your contacts in the island, both in the community and in professional circles.
  • You’ll be confident using social media to enhance your storytelling with an understanding of the changing demands of the audience.
  • You’ll be open to feedback, direction and willing to develop within the team.
  • You’ll operate technical studio equipment under minimal supervision to a high standard.
  • You’ll have a high quality control threshold and know what is and isn’t acceptable to broadcast.
  • You’ll love our shows, the BBC’s values and the concept of what we deliver on a daily basis.


  • Please note: Candidates must have a full, clean driving licence for this role.
  • As part of the application process, we will ask you to submit a link to a showreel demonstrating your on-air skills for the role.
