Having a nose for news and being a master of necessary equipment and production systems (cameras, sound, lighting and video editing) are the pre-requisites, as is a relevant qualification and/or significant experience working in newsrooms in senior roles and will be skilled in covering stories on a wide range of topics for visual news gathering.

Applicants will need to cover a full range of assignments from breaking news, compiling in-depth features and producing longer format sport shows.

In return we offer the chance to work with the best in the business, on award winning brands and titles in an environment fostering diversity and inclusion. We value our staff as our biggest assets and show this through our reward & recognition, succession & progression and growth & development programmes.
