We are looking for a talented, self-motivated journalist to join our news team based in Plymouth.

You’ll thrive on finding and setting up stories, primarily across Devon and Cornwall. You’ll be a great researcher who will then work with our reporters to turn the stories you’ve found into compelling content on television and online.

You must be very organised and able to cope with a heavy workload. You’ll also like working in a small team. You’ll be able to demonstrate your excellent editorial judgement and combine that with the enthusiasm to embrace multi-skilled tasks including script writing, editing, template graphics and online production. You’ll also get a kick from creating digital content that travels to the widest possible audience.

If you’d like to play a key role in setting the news agenda for ITV in the South-West, we’d like to hear from you. Please upload your CV, together with a covering letter outlining what attracts you to this job.

Closing Date: Friday 28th February 2020.

Role Criteria:

1: Proven track record in generating, researching and developing original ideas, taking a creative and accurate approach to storytelling and production on air and online.

2: Experience of working effectively as part of a team.

3: Strong journalistic instinct and curiosity.

4: A good command of language, accurate spelling & grammar, and an eye for detail

5: Proven track record of working successfully to deadlines and focusing well under pressure.
