The New Zealand Herald is at the forefront of innovation in digital story-telling. That's one reason nzherald.co.nz was named Website of the Year at the 2017 Canon Media Awards. We need an outstanding homepage editor to join the team in our world-class Auckland newsroom and help continue the phenomenal growth in our digital audience. The website now reaches almost 1.85 million Kiwis a month, with traffic up 32 per cent year-on-year!

We’re after an outstanding individual to join our diverse team! The ideal candidate will have top-notch news judgement and the ability to drive engagement through snappy headlines and excellent image selection. You will understand the need to deliver breaking news before the competition and you’ll be equally passionate about planned and unique stories that drive engagement and brand loyalty.

You will be across developments in sport, entertainment and business – here and around the world and you’ll be as comfortable executing your own first-class ideas as taking direction from newsroom leaders!

We’re after someone who is familiar with the pressures posed by rolling deadlines and hungry for success in arguably New Zealand's most competitive news battleground! Ideally you will be available to work across a 7-day roster.. But hey we aren’t all business here at NZME.. We love to let our hair down every now and then, and enjoy a good laugh!

As well as nzherald.co.nz, our world-class central Auckland HQ is home to the New Zealand Herald, Weekend Herald, Herald on Sunday, Newstalk ZB and Radio Sport. So if you think you have what it takes and you’re eligible to work in NZ, don’t be shy and send us your CV and a brief covering letter to: edapps@nzherald.co.nz by 9am on September 22.
