Looking for a change of pace? The Taupo & Turangi Weekender has the job for you.  We’re looking for a reporter who is a true news hound; you will have a nose and passion for news like none other.


Working with a small but friendly team in a part-time role you will find yourself covering a wide range of issues in a newsy regional centre. The ability to adapt to new technologies is essential, as is accurate writing, time management skills, people skills and tenacity. We value a professional attitude and strong work ethic.


You will be able to work collaboratively in a team and take direction, but equally important will be your ability to work independently when needed and your sense of humour.


As part of NZ’s leading media organisation, NZME, we pride ourselves on being the home of the best talent in NZ. We live and breathe our values to be Curious, Connected and Confident – meaning we tell it like it is, challenge the status quo, dare to try and love some fun on the way. We’re big on development and progression and create environments enabling you to bring your whole self to work.
