Opportunity focus

ITV News are offering the opportunity to join their national and regional news teams as a trainee journalist.
You will be taught all the skills you’ll need to work in one of their multi-media news operations. They’re looking for people who can demonstrate a commitment to journalism, have great story ideas and are ambitious.

They are particularly keen to receive applications from those who are from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, disabled people and those from lower socio economic groups as they recognise that individuals from these groups are currently underrepresented in the industry.
