|Employer:||KM Media Group|
Trainee & junior reporters
|Employment Type:||Full time|
The Medway Messenger is looking for two new reporters to join its team.
These are exciting opportunities for candidates bursting with ideas and enthusiasm.
As well as giving the ideal person a real hands-on job in shaping the local news agenda, the chief role offers a chance to news edit the award-winning KentOnline website and two Medway Messenger editions.
As a first step on the management ladder, it also presents the opportunity to learn more about the wider KM Media Group business.
As well as helping the newsdesk, you will be prepared to lead by example and coach more junior members of staff.
The trainee position would suit somebody who has completed their NCTJ-accredited course and is looking for a new challenge.
Candidates for both roles will be comfortable working in print, but be fully fledged multimedia reporters keen on playing their part online, on our kmfm radio station and the recently-launched KMTV local TV station.
Medway is one of Britain's newsiest areas, with a population of almost 300,000 and major new developments planned.
You'll be joining a team of experienced journalists passionate about their work and patch.
The ideal candidates will be NCTJ trained with a full driving licence.
• You'll be confident, able to communicate well and write tight copy. You'll need to be multimedia savvy and social media literate
• You'll be comfortable dealing with the great and the good...and the not so great and good
• You'll be open to learning new skills
• Above all, we're looking for ideas and lots of them
