Summary BBC Yorkshire's weather team provides forecasts for eight local radio stations and three television services around the North of England, from the Scottish border to the Wash, seven days a week. We need a new weather presenter to replace one of our team. Our regional and local weather service is an essential part of our output and a key driver in attracting audiences to the BBC. We are looking for people who can deliver this service in an engaging and authoritative way. In the role you will spend roughly fifty percent of your time providing weather forecasts; the rest of your time will be spent in the newsroom working as a journalist. We will also consider part-time weather applicants. You'll deliver forecasts on radio, television and contribute text for use on all platforms and you will be expected to have an understanding of digital platforms and social media and their importance for a digital news operation. Some technical aptitude is required to make use of our weather graphics system and other computer forecasting systems. You'll be expected to operate basic radio equipment. Most of your work as a weather presenter will be breakfast shifts and at weekends. These are very busy shifts; you will be producing several TV bulletins and providing multiple radio bulletins per shift. However, a degree of flexibility is expected as business needs may change. You'll have excellent broadcasting skills and an ability to develop weather related stories and ideas for our output across the region. Previous meteorological experience is desirable but not essential; some training can be given. Teamwork is key; you'll need to be able to work co-operatively as part of a small team and will have an understanding of the BBC's Editorial guidelines. You'll need excellent communication skills in audio, video and text, and be able to summarise the weather story for the day in a clear and engaging way. You should have a proven interest in the weather and an understanding of the needs of the BBC's audiences on all platforms. Please note as part of your application it is essential that you submit a show reel demonstrating your presentation ability. Please email [email protected] with your showreel by the closing date of Friday, 9th August. We expect the interviews to take place in the week beginning August 26th.
