The Sheffield Star

Company: 

Address:
York Street
Sheffield
S1 1 PU

Skills:
What the Star expect...
Dress smartly in case you are required to shadow a reporter to court or an inquest, for example.
Please bring with you your own notepad, pen and, preferably, some ideas for stories you'd like to work on or which you think The Star ought to cover.
Please bear in mind The Star is exceptionally short staffed these days and we do not have time to find students work to do on an hourly basis. The more self-sufficient you can be the more mutually beneficial the placement should turn out to be.

The Star also has a Sport section, if anyone is particularly interested in this add it to your application. You must be willing to cover all sports, not just football!
