News

ITV loves staying up to date

Here at ITV, we have 11 main news regions across England, Ireland, Wales and the Channel Islands, a Political Unit, and three critically acclaimed and award winning current affairs & factual programmes at ITV Wales and on the borders of Scotland at ITV Border. Phew.

All of which means our news team has never been busier. We produce a massive seventeen live and pre-recorded flagship programmes on weekdays, plus local bulletins during Good Morning Britain, at lunchtime and after News at Ten – all of which helps our audiences clarify and connect, and gain perspective and purpose. It’s why our award winning regions are often recognised by the industry – ITV News Tyne Tees won Best Regional programme at the 2015 Royal Television Awards, and our very own Pam Royle won best main presenter for a second year in a row.

What’s more, we’re also widely recognised for our award winning current affairs programmes too, including a 2015 Bafta for our Welsh current affairs programme Y Byd Ar Bedwar ("The World on Four").

 But what we’re most excited about is our commitment to diversity. We recognise that diversity is vital and we’re committed to representing all parts of British Society. And because of that, our Newsroom at ITV Central is the current holder of the Creative Diversity Network - News coverage award!

Careers in news

News careers in each region are broadly split between editorial roles such as producers, reporters, presenters and newsdesk journalists, and technical jobs (both in the studio gallery and out on the road), like production specialists and camera operators.

And with demanding deadlines throughout the day, everyone’s expected to pitch in. So our reporters and correspondents aren’t just the friendly faces that bring viewers their news, they write, shoot and edit their own stories too - as well as uploading their news to the web.

It all means that if you want to get into news, and you think you have what it takes to put our ‘three Cs and a G’ to the test, there’s a career for you whatever your background or experience.

You can also check out more details of our Annual News Traineeship here. If you're talented, enthusiastic and can show us you're committed to a career in journalism then it could be perfect for you.
