Tv: Communities Correspondent, BBC Look North, BBC

* Fixed term contract (12 months)
Job Introduction
We’re looking for a journalist to uncover and report on stories from Yorkshire’s diverse communities for BBC News’ flagship programme in the region, Look North. More than 15% of people in Yorkshire are from a black, Asian or minority ethnic background. As an organisation funded by the licence fee, the BBC has a duty to report news which interests all communities, yet in the past Look North has struggled to serve some of these groups.

About us

Look North provides news on BBC1 in Yorkshire ten times a day, including our main half-hour programme at 6.30pm which is the most watched news programme- national or regional- on any tv channel in Yorkshire. 2.5 million people watch Look North each week. That’s around half the adult population of Yorkshire, a diverse region including big cities like Leeds, Sheffield and Bradford; smaller towns in Yorkshire’s industrial heartland where coal, steel and textiles once dominated; and some of England’s most spectacular countryside including three national parks.

Role Responsibility
This is a senior position, working alongside four existing correspondents who specialise in business, politics, health and crime. It’s not a first job in journalism. Previous experience in tv is helpful, but you might work in radio or print at the moment and want to break into tv. If that’s the case we’ll offer training and a mentor. You will need to spot stories and trends, and turn them into compelling television. You will be a key member of the team in editorial discussions and will work as an advocate to underline the importance of community stories in a regional programme.

The Ideal Candidate
You’re an experienced journalist, keen to make a difference, with a detailed knowledge and understanding of Yorkshire’s diverse communities. Contacts who trust you are essential, as is the ability to know a good story and tell it. You’re a good self-starter who works well independently but also fits into a team. An ability to speak Urdu, Punjabi (Mirpuri/Pathwari) or Pashto would be useful.

We welcome interest from everyone irrespective of ethnic group but, as members of ethnic minority groups are currently under-represented in this type of role, we would encourage applications from members of these groups. Appointment will be based on merit alone.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

As part of your application we would like you to answer the following question; ‘In no more than 400 words please suggest two ideas for stories from Yorkshire which you would hope to cover for BBC Look North in your first two months in this role; and how you might turn these ideas into compelling TV news reports.’ Please use section 9 of the application questionnaire to give you answer.

The closing date for applications is midnight onThursday June 26th.

We don’t focus simply on what we do – we also care how we do it. Our values and the way we behave are very important to us. Please make sure you’ve read about our values and behaviours in the document attached below. You’ll be asked questions relating to them as part of your application for this role.
