Media Job: Reporter, based in Fort William, The Oban Times

CLOSING DATE: December 4, 2015

Qualified reporter

Fort William office

HERE, at The Oban Times, the West Highlands’ best-selling weekly newspaper, we pride ourselves on producing quality grassroots journalism.

A vacancy has arisen for an ambitious reporter with plenty of ideas, energy and enthusiasm to be based in our Fort William office; someone who can really get under the skin of our communities to find the stories that will engage readers.

Ideally, you’ll have passed your NCTJ diploma exams, including shorthand. You must have a full current driving licence.

As digital plays an increasingly important part in our news coverage, ideally you will be confident in the use of social media and digital storytelling techniques.

In return, we’re offering a fantastic opportunity for a qualified reporter to join one of Scotland’s leading independent news publishers, with a salary and conditions that reflect this – private health care, enhanced pension, life assurance and financial assistance with relocation.
