About us…

Radio Essex is an expanding local radio station, which has recently relaunched with a hit music format. Our core audience is the 25-34 age group, so our sound is fresh, vibrant and current. Our news output covers the stories that matter to the whole of Essex, a large, diverse and ever-changing county. We’re looking for a talented Broadcast Journalist to join our growing team in purpose-built studios on Southend Seafront.

About you…

As the successful candidate in this role you’ll be a qualified Broadcast Journalist with a great broadcast voice, a passion for developing local news and a brilliant on-air tone. You’ll have the ability to approach stories from different angles to make sure the listener sits up to take notice.

You’ll be using your journalistic instincts to smash our bulletins out of the park with the stories that matter for Essex, while also acting as an on-air expert discussing breaking news, sport and everything in between with our presenters.

As digital becomes an increasingly important part of what radio is all about, we’re moving to marry up our news and online offerings; as our new Broadcast Journalist, you’ll understand the importance of this and be enthusiastic about making this happen.

What you’ll need….

  • Experience of writing attention-grabbing copy
  • A journalism qualification and experience in a similar role
  • Confidence in conducting and editing great interviews
  • A strong understanding of media law
  • A grasp of all areas of news, including business and sport
  • The ability to work both as part of a team and when left to your own devices
  • Experience with web and social media would be a bonus, as would working with Burli.

What can we offer you?

We offer a competitive salary, as well as plenty of company benefits along with development opportunities and a supportive and positive work environment. All the while you’ll be working at a beach side location in view of the longest pleasure pier in the world!

To apply, please send your C.V. and a demo bulletin to Closing date is Friday, 25th August.
