Hello,

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

Currently I work for Politics.co.uk, where I self-shoot, produce and edit original packages to help tell the human stories behind the political spin.

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
