Vacancy for Broadcast Journalist at KMTV

 

KMTV has an  exciting opportunity for a qualified journalist (NCTJ or equivalent) to join the KMTV news team, working as a producer and, in time, as a reporter, on our daily hour-long flagship news show, Kent Tonight, our website and social media services. 

The successful applicant will have a passion for news and high quality TV and online
production. They will be self-starting, enthusiastic, multi-skilled and have a good grasp on

working unsocial hours is just part of life for a professional journalist.

team making news output and with the opportunity to work on other shows too such as
Team Talk, Chris & Co, Paul On Politics, Made in Kent & BASSed in Kent.

Fancy a reporting trip to this year's #March4Women?

Looking for something exciting to do on Sunday 3rd of March? Men, women, everybody's welcome. I am planning to attend and cover it for a couple of Mexican outlets and if you're still looking for portfolio stories this could be a cool thing to go do! The March starts at 12pm and then it culminates in an hour long event in Central Hall Westminster that you need to buy a 5 pound ticket for. Covering protests, demonstrations and marches is an important part of journalist's work. We could do a little unofficial field trip and train up from Medway together. Interested? I'm not hard to find =)
