The Maidenhead Advertiser, Slough Express & Windsor Express are looking for a trainee reporter to join the news team.
The three weekly titles are owned by Baylis Media Ltd, a multimedia news organisation based in Maidenhead and covering the East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire area. Owned by a charitable trust, we are one of the few truly independent newspaper publishers left in the country.
This year the Advertiser celebrated its 150th anniversary and the Express was named Weekly Newspaper of the Year (Free) at the Regional Press Awards 2018.

As a trainee reporter, you will have the opportunity to cover your own news patch in a varied role which involves everything from breaking news to court cases, human interest features, in-depth interviews and more. You will also be given the chance to develop your multi-media skills and use social media to engage with our audience.
Candidates must have an NCTJ pre-entry certificate, including 100wpm shorthand, a car and a clean driving licence. We offer an attractive employment package including a competitive starting salary, five weeks of annual leave and the opportunity to complete the NQJ certificate in a supportive working environment.

Please send a CV and covering letter to editor James Preston at jamesp@baylismedia.co.uk by 9am on Friday, October 18th.
