Getreading is looking for a talented Live News Journalist to join their busy news team based in their offices in Reading.
As well as bringing a nose for a good story you’ll have an appreciation of what content works well online and how the audience wants to engage with it.
As part of the getreading team you will need to be comfortable covering court and council meetings as well as football news and entertainment, including Reading Festival.
The role includes running their daily breaking news blog which reaches thousands of people every day in Berkshire.
You’ll be as confident using social media to find and promote your stories as you are sourcing or filming video, meeting a contact and getting the inside track on a story to lead the website.
Ideally you’ll have a journalist qualification including shorthand or previous relevant experience in a similar role.
This will be a shift position which will include evening and weekend work as required.
You will need a full driving licence to fulfil this role.
