BBC Radio Humberside is a multi-award winning station, having recently been voted Station of the Year at both the Radio Academy and Frank Gillard awards. We serve a busy news patch which covers northern Lincolnshire, the East Riding of Yorkshire and Hull – attracting well over 200,000 listeners each week. Whenever our communities are affected by a story our reporters are with them at the heart of it – reporting from the scene.
We are looking for a Broadcast Journalist to join our news team, working across the news and programmes output it generates each day. You will work within a team on a shift system, supporting content for our Breakfast and Drivetime programmes, alongside the hourly bulletin service. You will be expected to be proficient in a variety of roles, such as news reading, preparing pre-recorded packages, live interviews and two-way reporting on location. You may also be required to go out in the radio car. You will be making editorial decisions on breaking stories as well as generating your own original stories.
The Ideal Candidate
As an experienced broadcast journalist, you’ll have a track record of generating original stories; bags of ideas; creative treatments, first class writing skills and be comfortable working in a live broadcasting environment. You’ll need strong editorial judgement, news awareness, and experience of reporting. On-Air experience would be advantageous. You must have the ability to work within a team, as well as on your own. Ideally you’ll know the BBC Radio Humberside area, having a good grasp of the region’s news and sport agenda is a must.
The closing date for applications is Monday 09th June.
