Since graduating from University Centre Peterborough in September 2014, I have gained employment as a Trainee Reporter at The Rutland & Stamford Mercury newspaper, as part of Johnston Press.

I was really lucky to get the role, but I feel it was one I deserved as I had already done a large amount of work experience at the newspaper during the three years of my journalism degree.

I have literally been thrown into the role, having to source my own stories, chase breaking news, produce front pages and interview high profile people - including Mary Berry!

Although I don't see myself working in local news for the rest of my career, this is a great platform for me and as a trainee reporter, I'm learning on the job and producing a massive portfolio of published work which I can show future employees. I have already done so much and have produced front page stories nearly every week. I would never have imagined being paid to be a proper reporter but thanks to the help and support I received at UCP this has made my dream a reality.
