Trainee & junior reporters
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a bright, passionate and self-motivated reporter to join the Wyvex Media stable of weekly regional newspapers and West Coast Today website.
The person we are looking for will 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.
We have recently launched our aggregate West Coast Today newsbrand website covering the West Highlands and Islands and a knowledge of the area would be an advantage. As well as writing for the website and newspapers, you will be expected to take photographs and video on the job and 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.
You should also hold a full driving licence.
