Job Description

Are you an ambitious and committed journalist looking for a first newsroom position? Archant’s award-winning Weston Mercury has a rare vacancy for a trainee reporter.

The successful candidate will demonstrate a passion for community life, a desire to get to the heart of patch issues and a keen eye for detail; all alongside the ability to produce exclusive and accurate multi-media news and feature content to engage print and online audiences.
