Reporter – ARRAN BANNER
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a bright, passionate and self-motivated reporter to join The Arran Banner.
The person we are looking for will ideally have an NCTJ or similar qualification, including shorthand, be multi-media literate, and have excellent reporting and writing skills.
We are passionate about good local journalism and like our reporters to get out into the community, meeting people face-to-face, and uncovering the best stories.
You should be bursting with ideas and have a track record of delivering engaging news, as well as understand the importance of fostering great contacts, knowing your patch, and be capable of working on your own initiative as well as part of a team. You should also be able to demonstrate sound journalistic practice, such as balance, careful sourcing and a practical understanding of Scots Law.
The position will be based in the island’s main village, Brodick, but as Arran is a large, busy island you should also hold a full driving licence.
As well as writing for the newspaper and website, you will be expected to take photographs on the job, as well as contribute to our social media channels and podcasts.
In return for all this we offer a competitive salary, great experience and training, as well as an enhanced pension.
Please apply by email, sending your CV, plus a covering letter and some examples of your work to: [email protected]
Please mention HoldtheFrontPage when applying for this role. This advert will expire on Tuesday 12th December 2023.
