My name is Jem Collins and I’m a professional video, online and social media journalist, with several years of experience at both a local and national level.

Currently I’m working as the News and Social Media Editor for RightsInfo, as well as heading up a start-up to help young people into the media, JournoResources.

I am also a trustee for The Student Publication Association and a co-found of The Secound Source.

Being a good reporter requires mastering a wide variety of skills beyond producing clean concise copy. Jem has demonstrated a keen eye for a story, submitting FOI requests to source information as well as being able to handle sensitive issues

Jem excelled in probative yet informal presentation and immediate rapport with subjects who ranged from a broadcast frontline news reporter through creative feature animators, to specialist subject authors. She brought an adaptable and fresh energy approach that was much appreciated
