As the NZ Herald’s picture editor you will plan, commission, source and present the best images for all our platforms, products and content categories – thereby building the biggest digital audiences in market. There’s also the task of retaining the biggest print readership in market. You’ll work to support the creation of the biggest stream of video views in our region through the brilliant selection and editing of moving images.

We know there’s a lot of “biggests” mentioned above – from that you’ll have gathered this is a fast moving, organisational type role with a need for strong technical knowledge. Therefore you’re going to need several years’ experience in editorial roles at a major media organisation and a proven track record of leading teams. You’ll be equally at home in print and digital media environments with sound knowledge of photographic and video formats. You’ll innately understand audience, and how to use Insight research and analytics to continually refine this understanding in order to produce more targeted content.

In return we offer a progressive, innovative, inclusive and diverse organisation who takes great pride in our purpose built, award winning, state of the art news room. We pride ourselves on being the home of the best talent in NZ and value progression, succession, development and recognition.
