Kent job opportunity - community reporter

Here's an interesting job opportunity that might be attractive for the right Centre for Journalism graduate/near-graduate.

It's a multimedia Community Journalist role paid for by St Margaret's Church in Rainham, Kent.

The job spec says: "Half of the stories you produce will focus on the local community – its people and groups, schools and new housing. The other half will focus on telling the story of the church, its people, purpose and history. You’ll also take a lead on all of our digital content including overseeing the live streaming of our services."

The job offers a salary of £20k plus 4% pension contribution.

#BlackLivesMatter

Over the weekend the academic team have heard from a number of our students – both in email and in video calls - expressing strong feelings about the deplorable killing of George Floyd and the following unfolding events in the US, highlighting their concern that there hasn’t been an ‘official’ response from the department.
Thanks to all of you who have made your views felt, and for prompting an internal debate about such an important subject.
You will know that we don’t generally comment collectively on world events – but it’s clear that we should be reacting to this one.
