BBC Scotland on hunt for trainee journalists to assist in referendum coverage

BBC Scotland is on the hunt for trainee journalists to assist in its coverage of next year’s referendum vote on Scotland’s constitutional future.

Says the BBC, successful candidates will be working “mostly as a researcher on a raft of programmes and media across the coming year designed to keep audiences up to date with every step on the road to the independence referendum”.

It continues: “This is an unique opportunity to learn journalism skills at BBC Scotland and help top BBC journalists tell the biggest story in Scotland’s history for over three hundred years.”

The closing date for applications is the second of next month.
