Multi-Media Journalist job, Yorkshire Coast Radio, Scarborough

Yorkshire Coast Radio is looking to recruit a Multi-Media Journalist to join their team in Scarborough.

The station has a 42% weekly reach, a 91% awareness score, a Facebook audience that represents 45% of our TSA and the area’s leading news website.

They run an integrated news and programming team which delivers local news coverage across all platforms seven days a week and they focus on the local issues. They cover them with integrity and passion and are committed to being the Yorkshire Coast’s news provider.

If you get why all that’s important then they’d like you to join their team.

You’ll be a key part of their newsroom. You need to be a self-starter who can bring ideas to the team, identify and develop stories and bring them alive for the audience on the website, social media channels and radio output.

You need to be able to set up and conduct interviews, produce web copy, video and audio.

You need to be able to source and edit pictures as well as compile and deliver live on-air radio bulletins and news flashes.

You’ll be working as part of a passionate and supportive team, but you’ll also need the confidence to make editorial decisions when working on your own.

The job involves getting out of the office and reporting from the field, being an ambassador for the station and building relationships. Their journalists work on a rotating shift pattern including breakfast shifts and working one weekend in three.

They don’t do hubbing, they just do proper local radio.

If you love telling the story of the day with passion and clarity then they’d love to hear from you.

You’ll need strong legal knowledge and a full, clean driving licence.

To apply for this role, send your covering letter, CV and an aircheck or voice demo to: matthew.pells@yorkshirecoastradio.com

The deadline for applications is Friday, 20 October.
