Communicating with the Media tutor
Sara Jones started her working life as journalist on local papers, moved into local radio and then worked as a reporter for Independent Radio News. From there she moved to the BBC Radio newsroom, working as a sub-editor on Radio 4 and Radio 2. She then became a freelance reporter on Radio 4 factual programmes, eventually working as a reporter and producer on the consumer advice programme You and Yours.
Sara went to television news as a researcher and reporter and then began media training. She trains mostly in the public and voluntary sector and has trained both in the UK and across Europe. Her clients have included government ministers, senior civil servants and the managers of blue-chip companies. The only clients that have impressed her children, however, are Derren Brown, the cast of Hollyoaks and various Big Brother winners. She has taught at Sheffield for almost 10 years.
