Three6Zero is on the hunt for a Junior Journalist Apprentice to join its growing automotive media firm on the South Coast of England.
 
Over 18 months, from this September, the successful candidate will work towards gaining the Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship, which has been developed by the National Council for the Training of Journalists.
 
For four days of the week you will be based at Three6Zero’s offices in Southampton and one day will be spent in lessons at nearby Highbury College in Portsmouth, a centre of excellence in journalism training.

You will be writing stories for the company’s automotive products, maintaining its websites, building your writing skills and creating a portfolio of published work.

The Three6Zero brand includes two leading publications (Automotive Purchasing and Supply Chain, New Mobility) and holds a number of events held around the world (Automotive Leaders Summit, Automotive Global Awards).

In addition to a salary, working in a fast-growing company and gaining an industry-recognised qualification which will lead a career in journalism, you will benefit from unique networking opportunities within the automotive and transportation businesses, meeting top-tier executives in the logistics, manufacturing and technology sectors.

You will also get the chance to work alongside Editors and Marketing Managers who will support you and help you cement your position in the automotive industry, with the chance of progressing post-qualification.

Three6Zero will allow you the freedom to thrive and establish yourself as a journalist, gaining experience in an office environment and on the road.
