The Stratford Press has a great opportunity for a junior reporter to join our editorial team.  We’re looking for someone who has a nose and passion for news like no other.

Working with a small but friendly team in a part-time role you will find yourself working across a range of rounds including local body politics, sports and rural issues.  The ability to adapt to new technologies is essential, as is accurate writing, time management 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 sense of humour and ready smile.

​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.

Interested candidates should apply without delay, enclosing a CV and any recent examples of published work to ilona.hanne@stratfordpress.co.nz by close of business, Friday, May 12.


Applicants for this position must have NZ residency or a valid NZ work permit
