Full Time


A rare opportunity has arisen to join the sportsdesk at one of the country's biggest independent publishers.

KM Media Group publishes some of the UK's biggest-selling weekly newspapers, runs a network of radio stations and the award-winning KentOnline network and has its own TV station.

This position is based on the East Kent sportsdesk in Ashford and responsibilities will include covering the county's cricket team and Dover Athletic. 

The ideal candidate will be able to write fast, accurate copy to deadline, have plenty of story ideas and be adept at using social media to find and promote stories. 

We are not a typical company and we're not looking for a typical reporter - you will have the opportunity to be on air and on screen as well as in print and online.

Ideally you will already have basic video skills, but full training will be given if you convince us you are the best candidate.

This position would suit a senior reporter or an experienced trainee with NCTJ preliminary qualifications.

A full driving licence is required.

Closing date for applications is Friday, January 11, 2019.
