Senior Journalist Reporter
- Full Time
BBC Arabic is the BBC’s largest language service, providing news, current affairs and programmes on TV, Radio, Digital and Social Media to Arabic speaking audiences in the Middle East and across the world, 24 hours per day, and seven days per week. Our output is contemporary in style and outlook and adheres to our BBC core values of accuracy and impartiality.
We are looking for a Senior Journalist Reporter to join our friendly newsgathering team in Washington. This is a continuing contract on local, US, terms and conditions.
As a Senior Journalist Reporter you will provide timely, expert and authoritative coverage of news and current affairs events for TV, digital, social media and radio in Arabic and English. You will have an excellent network of contacts and access to news-makers and should be able to supply material for broadcast in classical Arabic and fluent broadcast-standard English. Reports will be tailored to our multi-national and passionate BBC Arabic audiences. You will, on occasions, be deployed to hostile locations at short notice and you must be prepared to report on breaking news overnight and at weekends as required – working alone if needs be.
