Retford Times

Category: 
Company: 

Address:
Chancery Court
32 West Street
Retford
Nottinghamshire
DN22 6ES

Skills:
We’re a weekly paper based in north Notts covering an area from the South Yorkshire border down to central Notts with a good print circulation, big online presence and a busy news patch. We want to offer students on your course the opportunity to work here for a week maximum which will give them the chance to boost their cuttings files and get vital experience at the sharp end of journalism. THEY WILL NOT BE MAKING ANY CUPS OF TEA. Apart from the fact that no one in editorial drinks the stuff, we only have two reporters so they are guaranteed at least two or three page leads (or even the front) if they knuckle down and get stuck in, which I’m sure they’re capable of doing. We will be sending them out on assignments and will expect them to work under their own steam to show us what they’re made of. Retford is in easy reach of Sheffield, around half an hour away by train (change at Worksop) or 45 mins by road (A57).
