Calling for volunteers to cover the General Election - 12 December

The date has been set for the 12th of Dec and in CFJ tradition, many of our students will join the ranks of journalists all over the world covering overnight counts. Fueled by coffee and snacks, our brave NCTJ students will help tell the story of the 17 constituencies heading to the polls in Kent. 

Want a front row to history? Want some amazing work experience to put on your CV? Need some material for your NCTJ portfolio?

We're looking for 34 brave souls to cover Kent's 17 constituencies in pairs. You'll be covering the night for KMTV and other outlets. This opp is unpaid but your expenses are covered through the Uni's work Bursary Fund.

Email Laura Garcia ASAP if you're interested on lgarcia@kmtv.co.uk.

By the way, have you registered to vote?

 

Law Business Research is looking for a Trainee News Reporter

Law Business Research are an award-winning global provider of legal content and business intelligence for the legal and intellectual property markets.  CFJ grad Sam Clark works at LBResearch and has some insider knowledge for you:

Reporters typically write one well-researched news article per day. We tend to go from primary sources only and most of our contacts are senior lawyers and policymakers. It can be quite technical to start with but the publication covers such a focused area that you quickly become a bit of an expert. The people are smart and friendly and there’s a good amount of international travel involved.
