Job Description

The Dorset is looking for a talented trainee multi-media reporter to join its award-winning team.

We are looking for someone who is motivated to produce compelling copy in print and online.

No two days are the same in our busy newsroom based in one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

The successful candidate will be writing for the paper and also required to break news online, interact with readers on social media and be bursting with ideas.

We are looking for someone who works quickly and accurately under pressure, is able to bring in his or her own stories and is eager to get on in the world of journalism.

We take training seriously at the Dorset Echo and three of our former trainees have each gained their first editorships this year.

We expect candidates to have an NCTJ-accredited journalism qualification, including shorthand, a great attitude, an ability to spot a story buried in a bland press release and the ability to work well under pressure.

A clean driving licence and your own car are required for this role.

The closing date is June 16.
