Video Journalist - local TV reporter

A full-time job at That's Berkshire - Freeview channel 7 in Reading, Berkshire Oeste, United Kingdom
Posted 2 October, 2016 in Programming

That's Berkshire, part of That’s TV, is the brand new TV channel for Berkshire coming soon on Freeview channel 7 (the slot recently vacated by BBC Three).

That's Berkshire is now recruiting Video Journalists to deliver news reports and features in the Royal County of Berkshire.

That’s Berkshire will be the only TV channel based in Reading – one of the fastest growing towns in the UK. The station seeks multi-skilled journalists seeking to make a big name for themselves in a local TV station with a ‘big city’ mentality before moving their careers onto the national stage.

You will be an important part of the core production team delivering a major local news and entertainment service on TV and online.

This isn’t your standard 9 to 5. You will setup, shoot and edit your own packages and help write and produce the station's daily news magazine shows. There will also be opportunities to present on-screen.

This is a rare opportunity for exceptional candidates to gain significant experience in TV reporting and presenting. That's Berkshire will, in common with all That’s TV channels, also enter into a contract to share its news footage with the BBC.

That's Berkshire 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. Ability to drive is essential as the station will be based in Reading but cover a large part of the Berkshire area.

To apply

To apply, please email your CV (in Word or PDF format) to Please include a covering note explaining in under 500 words what makes you different and what you offer to That’s Berkshire. Please also confirm where you currently live. Finally please include some links to your most recent work or showreel online (please do not send video attachments).

But please be quick - That's Berkshire is launching soon and there is only a short time to sift through, interview and select the very best candidates. Good luck!
