A user is unable to assign a reporter when creating an issue?

A user hasn't got the field to assign a reporter for an issue when creating an issue. 

Field configurations has been set so reporter is assigned to the new default created. Anyon have any ideas why this might be?

I assume the reporter field is on the "create" screen for the issue type, and that other people can set the reporter?

If that is correct, check the permission scheme - does this user have the "set reporter" permission?
