Roaming Reporter (Outdoors) (Ref: NT10/05680)
Why Should You Apply?
As the caretaker of some of the nation’s most treasured countryside and local green places, there’s no one better to raise awareness of the great outdoors than the National Trust. And with the research finding that 20% of children have never visited the countryside, it needs raising. That’s why we’re kicking off a national debate to get people talking about the great outdoors. And you’ll be right at the heart of it.
About the role
Have we lost touch with the outdoors? Why has this happened? What does the outdoors have to offer? How can we become a more outdoors nation? Those are some of the questions you’ll be asking as you film, edit and upload vlogs – creating debate on our relationship with nature on a national level. Travelling around England, Wales and Northern Ireland, you’ll interview everyone from urban youth groups and outspoken community members to celebrities. So it’s important that you take an impartial, open-minded approach to the project and respect the opinions of the interviewees. And you’ll be much more than the voice behind the microphone. As the face of the campaign, you’ll gain national recognition – not to mention a foot in the door with the Trust.
A qualified journalist with a strong background in broadcasting, you’ll have the know-how to film, edit and upload videos as well as write engaging commentary. Chances are you’ve got experience in news production and reporting, so you’ll be used to quick turnarounds and interviewing a wide range of people. You’ll also have an excellent understanding of how best to use social media as part of a communications campaign along with an in-depth knowledge of the political landscape and issues affecting our relationship with the outdoors. And whether you’re passionate about nature or a confirmed city slicker, you’ll certainly be creative and work well to deadlines.
