Are you a broadcast journalist looking for a new challenge? Do you love being on air? Do you want the chance to work in a multi-media newsroom, where you can develop your skills? If so BBC Radio Guernsey wants you to join our team.
BBC RADIO GUERNSEY is part of BBC English Regions, which is the divisional name for BBC Local Radio and Local TV. With approximately 3000 staff up and down the country, BBC English Regions includes around 40 local radio stations and 42 local websites.
As one of the BBC’s most successful local stations in the UK, BBC RADIO GUERNSEY serves the island communities which make up the Bailiwick of Guernsey. 40% of the population tune in to our local and national news and entertainment shows every week. We are a multi-media operation, working closely with TV and online to deliver news and current affairs for audiences in the Bailiwick. If you want to work across platforms then this is the place to come. We’re looking for an experienced Broadcast Journalist to join us, someone who has a track record of producing and presenting bulletins, but can also come up with original stories to lead the news agenda across our services.
Original programming ideas will come straight out of your creative brain. That could mean ideas for features or reporting the region’s breaking news as it happens.
No day as a BBC Broadcast Journalist is ever the same. One day you’ll be reporting and interviewing the public, and the next you’ll be reading the news or producing the content of the show. All the time keeping editorial control of everything we broadcast and meeting the often tough demands of the job.
The Ideal Candidate
As an experienced journalist, you'll have a proven track record of generating original stories; bags of ideas; creative treatments, first class writing skills, an excellent radio voice and the ability to work in a multi-platform environment.
Pair your knowledge of radio production methods and editorial techniques, with a real interest in local, regional and national news and you’ll thrive as a Broadcast Journalist at the BBC.
The benefits you’ll get
Our people really do make the BBC who we are, so we reward them fairly for their contribution.
That means 25 days’ basic annual leave, a defined contribution pension scheme, life assurance, accident benefit and interest-free season ticket loans. Not forgetting access to the BBC Training & Development Academy, offering you world-class training in all areas of broadcasting.
