A bit about Journalism at MediaCityUK…

Journalism is a practical course that fuses practice and theory to produce students who work collaboratively to develop the skills and mindset to succeed in the industry. We’ve just produced another cohort of great graduates who did not let recent industry restrictions get in the way of a good story. Our award-winning students go on to thrive in industry, finding work with our neighbours at MediaCityUK and beyond.

Our degrees emphasise creativity in practice and project work with industry which also fosters collaboration between different subject disciplines. Our Masters programme is accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) and our two biggest journalism programmes by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC).

So, what will the role involve?

The main thrust of this role is to inspire our students to produce original, innovative, imaginative work, particularly sport journalism.

To achieve this:

  • You will be an experienced journalist, ideally with a background in sport
  • You’ll be a great communicator who can share your passion and skills with the next generation of journalists
  • You’ll enjoy connecting with people within the university and beyond
  • You’ll be big on co-creating and collaborating with a wider team.
  • You’ll obviously be committed to delivering and promoting an amazing student experience, and will be able to demonstrate an understanding of, and empathy with, the needs of a large and diverse student community.

Please ensure you provide evidence in your cover letter/personal statement of how you meet the criteria in the attached person specification.
