Plymouth’s independent local radio station, Radio Plymouth, is looking for an energetic and enthusiastic Broadcast Journalist to join our small but perfectly formed team!

Based in a dynamic waterside university City with a powerful military heritage, the successful candidate will need to source and write news stories, record and edit interviews and read bulletins.

You’ll be:

  • An excellent communicator with a great voice
  • Hard working, creative and talented
  • Comfortable broadcasting live
  • Conversant with all relevant journalistic guidelines, including the Broadcast Code
  • Resourceful and enterprising: full of ideas about how to create off-diary stories
  • Sufficiently resilient to work in a pressured environment
  • A self-starter; you’ll be compiling most of the news output on your own, whilst being a key part of a small team
  • A fast worker; as well as the hourly routine of bulletins, you’ll be updating our website and providing content for our social media platforms
  • Adept with studio technologies; ideally RCS’s Burli news software and Zetta playout system
  • Able to cope with tight deadlines and competing demands on your time

Please don’t apply if:

  • You’re more comfortable with a regular nine-to-five job
  • You need high levels of support
  • You prefer relying on press releases rather than generating ideas and getting them to air
  • You don’t know much about Plymouth

How to apply: Please email a short example of your news reading and, ideally, a link to any online work you’ve done. Email:

Salary in accordance with experience, attitude & Ability.
