Job Description

Trainee Reporter- Exmouth Journal

Based in Exeter

Looking for your first job on a local newspaper? Fancy cutting your journalism teeth as a reporter covering one of Devon’s largest towns? Do you like to be beside the seaside? Then look no further.

The Exmouth Journal, one of Archant’s popular, paid-for weekly newspapers, is looking for an enthusiastic trainee reporter to join the reporting team in Exeter.

If you relish a challenge, have what it takes to get right to the heart of a community and love the thrill of searching out stories and securing exclusives, then we want to hear from you.

You need to be a stickler for detail, highly organised, and have a strong creative streak to engage our audience – online as well as in print.

Each member of our lively team is given a patch to report on and is expected to form contacts and provide comprehensive and brilliant news coverage from all areas of life.

Applicants must have completed the NCTJ pre-entry course, passed preliminary exams and 100 wpm shorthand, to work towards the industry-recognised NQJ. Students about to complete NCTJ-approved courses will also be considered.

The successful applicant will get all the help they need towards gaining an NQJ, with back-up support for your log book and training courses before the exams.

A clean driving licence and own transport are essential. Please be sure to reference this in any letter of application.

The role offers a competitive salary and excellent benefits including 5 weeks annual leave and a contributory pension and life assurance scheme (after qualifying period) and a wide range of voluntary benefits include a Cycle to Work scheme, Childcare Vouchers, Westfield Health Scheme and Archant Gold, charity matched funding.

The closing date is December 22, 2017
