You will be based in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, with access to surfing, sailing and kayaking on your doorstep.

Falmouth also has plenty to do of an evening, thanks to its young student population, with live music a regular weekly fixture and a huge variety of restaurants.

It is home to an annual real ale festival and, if seafood is your dish, a festival dedicated to oysters, while once a year the town is given over to a week-long party with events every evening.

It is a place you can really become part of the community, with a highly regarded rugby team, cricket team, league-winning football team and world champion gig rowing club all welcoming new members with open arms.

Your role will be a varied one covering news and sport: one minute you could be covering court, the next out taking photos at an event or reporting on the latest local sporting triumphs.

And we are not adverse to a fun, quirky story. 

At the heart of it all will be the community you live and work in and you will be encouraged to get out there and make strong contacts.

The job will include occasional evening work, and if something breaks we will expect you to be there at the front line bringing live coverage first to our readers.

We are looking for passion and someone who thrives on the adrenaline rush of a breaking news story; this is not your average 9 to 5 office job.

A driving licence is essential.
