Do you enjoy finding and researching unique news stories? Are you passionate about the area that you live in and want to work for a market leading radio station?

Then Spirit FM could be your match – we are the number one commercial radio station covering West Sussex, based from our studios in Chichester.

We’re looking for a new Broadcast Journalist – but not an ordinary Broadcast Journalist.

The number of people reading our news articles online is now higher than it’s ever been, and we’re looking for someone with lots of creativity to continue that digital growth.

So you’ll have an excellent newsreading voice because that’s still the bread and butter of what we do, but you’ll also need to think outside the box when it comes to online reporting.

It’s a challenging but extremely rewarding role where you will work hard, but have lots of fun too in a close-knit creative team.

Jobs like this don’t come around very often – in fact they’re extremely rare. Because of that we’re looking for a first class candidate to continue delivering our first class news service.

You’ll also need strong legal knowledge, and experience of using Burli is preferred.

You’ll also need a full, clean driving licence.
