Broadcast Journalist, BBC Radio Oxford

Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

Job Introduction

BBC Radio Oxford is looking for talented Broadcast Journalist to join our team for six months.

We celebrate our people, we reach millions with our Digital content and produce lively, personality-packed programmes every day.

We’ve got a fantastic patch – we export the Mini to the world, we’re at the heart of innovative discoveries in technology and medicine and, of course, we boast a world famous seat of learning.

Role Responsibility

You’ll be working at the heart of our multimedia newsroom on our bulletins and programmes. 

You must be calm under pressure and prove the ability to work to tight deadlines.

The ability to work as part of a team is a must, though you’ll need to be a self-starter with a whole host of original story and treatment ideas.

The Ideal Candidate

This role would be ideal for a real multi-tasker.  You could be presenting our news bulletins one day, helping to set up the breakfast show the next, and putting together a creative digital video the next. 

You must be ambitious, have a passion for Oxfordshire life, love personality radio, appreciate the power of Digital and be bursting with creative ideas.

A knowledge of BBC Radio Oxford’s programmes and BBC Local Radio’s strategy is a must.

You’ll have sound editorial judgment, good writing skills and a thorough knowledge of broadcast law.

You’ll need to know what makes Oxfordshire tick and what audiences want from our programmes.


In addition to your online application, please send a demo of your on-air work.  This should demonstrate your flexibility and last no longer than 10 minutes.  Demos should be sent to no later than the closing date

For an informal chat about this opportunity, please contact Alison Dawes, News Editor, BBC Radio Oxford.

About the Company

We don’t focus simply on what we do – we also care how we do it. Our values and the way we behave are important to us. Please make sure you’ve read about our values and behaviours in the document attached below. You’ll be asked questions relating to them as part of your application for this role.

The BBC is committed to building a culturally diverse workforce and therefore strongly encourages applications from underrepresented groups.  We are committed to equality of opportunity and welcome applications from individuals, regardless of their background

The BBC is currently implementing a Career Path Framework which will result in employees being aligned to generic job titles and job descriptions. Consequently, successful applicants may be realigned to a slightly different job title shortly after joining the BBC.
