You’ll also ask the questions that hold power to account and want to play a part in helping communities build back following the pandemic.

You will be a fully qualified NCTJ reporter with 100wpm shorthand. A driving licence is essential, as is access to a car. We work on a rota basis with some early and late shifts as well as some weekend work.
