Video Journalist / TV Reporter
A full-time job at That's York - Local TV for York in York
Posted 1 October, 2016 in Programming
That's York is the brand new TV channel for York coming soon on Freeview channel 7 and Virgin Media channel 159 in York and the surrounding area. The station is an affiliate of the That's TV group which controls 10 of the new city TV licences awarded by Ofcom.
That's York is now recruiting for talented Video Journalists to deliver news reports and features in the grand old city of York - recently voted the most beautiful city in the UK and No.1 for the city British people would choose to move to.
You will be an important part of the core team producing the news content for the station every day, reporting on the good, the bad and the ugly of local life.
Expect to be busy. You will setup, shoot and edit your own reports and help write and produce the station's news magazine shows. There will also be opportunities for many That's York reporters to present on-screen.
This is a rare opportunity for exceptional candidates to gain significant experience in TV reporting and presenting. That's York will, in common with most other city TV channels, also enter into a contract to share its news footage with the BBC so many of your best stories are likely to end up being used on BBC regional news.
That's York is seeking driven journalists who don't just report the most obvious - but wish to make a big impact on York - and their careers - by breaking original stories for a great city, unearthing and telling hard news and compelling human-interest stories.
To apply, 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 how you can help ensure That's York stands out in a crowded TV market. Please also confirm where you currently live, your current notice period (if any) and whether you have a valid driving licence and UK work permit. 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 York is launching soon and there is only a short time to sift through, interview and select the very best candidates. Good luck!
