Job Description

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a driven and ambitious digital reporter to join our talented team working primarily on Wyvex Media’s exciting new website, West Coast Today.

We are looking for an ambitious, digitally-adept, skilled and versatile reporter to unearth the best breaking news, features, leisure and trending stories on a lively beat, delivering agile and engaging coverage on our platform and across our social media channels.

You will be passionate about digital storytelling and be bursting with ideas, with a desire to come up with ways of presenting content using tools such as Canva and Flourish. The ideal candidate will also have a solid understanding of tailoring copy and headlines to maximise SEO and search engine traffic.

As well as writing for the website, you will be expected to take photographs and shoot and edit video, as well as contributing to our podcasts.

Ideally, you will be an outstanding trainee with NCTJ preliminary qualifications and 100wpm shorthand. You should be someone with a sound knowledge of the West Highlands and Islands area and the company's five news brands that come under the West Coast Today umbrella.
