TV Reporter / Video Journalist
A full-time journalism job at That's Cumbria in Carlisle, Cumbria, UK
Posted 13 April 2018, 4.52pm edt
That's Cumbria, part of That’s TV, is the TV service for Cumbria and the South of Scotland broadcasting on Freeview channel 8.
That's Cumbria is now seeking multi-skilled journalists seeking to make a name for themselves in on-screen TV reporting.
You will be an important part of the core production team delivering the local news each weekday.
This isn’t your standard 9 to 5. You will setup, shoot and edit your own packages and help write and produce the service's daily news magazine shows. There will also be opportunities for exceptional candidates to present on-screen.
This is a rare opportunity to get a break in TV reporting. That's Cumbria has, in common with other That’s TV services, also entered into a contract to share its news footage with the BBC.
That's Cumbria is seeking proven journalists who will bin the press releases and go out and find their own challenging news stories and features which tug at the heart-strings.
Please email your CV (in Word or PDF format) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a covering note explaining in under 500 words what makes you different and what you offer to That’s Cumbria. Please also confirm where you currently reside and whether you drive. Finally please include some links to your most recent work or showreel online (please do not send video attachments).
If you are interested in applying for similar roles at other That’s TV services there is no need to submit multiple applications – simply tell us in your covering note. Thanks.
Sorry - only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Due to the volume of candidates we regret that we are unable to enter into correspondence.
This job closes: 11 May, 2018
