Journalist x 2, BBC Radio Gloucestershire
BBC Radio Gloucestershire serves a population of over half a million people from a variety of walks of life and backgrounds. Towns and villages surround the urban centres of Gloucester and Cheltenham, rich in history and culture. From Roman settlements to the current debate over what the county needs to be and do in 2050, there is a lot going on.
We are looking for TWO talented journalists to join our newsroom in Gloucester.
Are you a brilliant reporter bursting with ideas and a great on-air presence? Or maybe you’re an experienced journalist and producer, ready to shape and deliver our flagship breakfast programme on a daily basis? If so we’d like to hear from you.
We like all of our journalists to connect with the communities we broadcast to and to discover stories that our listeners will be interested in hearing. People who generate ideas and take them to air are particularly welcome.
As part of the team at BBC Radio Gloucestershire you’ll work in both on-air and off-air roles. Everyone plays their part in reporting and producing and bulletin reading across the week so this is a great opportunity to develop your skills portfolio.
Each of our journalists are allocated a patch and you’ll be expected to develop contacts in that area and deliver stories from there into our output.
Are you the right candidate?
You’ll be a professional with a passion for all news platforms, especially the medium of radio. You’ll have experience of working in a newsroom either on a casual or contract basis.
You must have strong organisational, influencing, persuading, and communication skills; as well as a keen ear for great radio. The ideal candidate will be also be able to think on their feet and put plans into action quickly. An understanding of the local radio audience is highly desirable. Working effectively within a team, and acting on your own initiative, are both key qualities.
