Job Description

Senior Reporter (Entertainments)

We are looking for a talented full-time senior journalist for what is probably the best job in the world.

Blackpool is the Las Vegas of the north, the famous home of showbiz and entertainment, and you would lead our coverage at Blackpool Gazette.

If you are as happy producing in depth celebrity interviews and 'what's on' breaking news and as comfortable behind a keyboard as in front of camera, this could be for you.

We are looking for a confident, diligent and fast-moving reporter who can manage their own diary and develop a packed contact book, with a love of entertainment, theatre, events and the celebrity world.

SEO and video are key to the role but we would support with training in all aspects.

This role would suit an experienced reporter looking for a specialism or a newly qualified senior wanting the next career step on the ladder but if you are an ambitious trainee - drop the editor a line.

Everybody knows and loves Blackpool and this is a unique opportunity to lead and develop your own and the Gazette's profile - you would be the face of our entertainment offering.

A typical day could include covering a launch event, turning around an entertainment news story, interviewing a TV star for a long-form feature, writing explainer-style articles and round-ups, filming a bulletin to camera or reviewing at the theatre.

You will get the opportunity to develop this role and make it your own and we are happy to discuss hybrid or home-based working, though you will need to be in or close to Blackpool.

Contact Details

Please send your letter and application directly to Blackpool Gazette Editor: Nicola.adam@jpimedia.co.uk. Closing date: Monday, January 31, 2022

 

Please mention HoldtheFrontPage when applying for this role. This advert will expire on Monday 31st January 2022.
