The Rotorua team are seeking an experienced senior journalist who can demonstrate flair and tenacity. It goes without saying you’ll have a passion for news, a track record of finding great stories and sources, and the ability and drive it takes to foot it in today’s ultra-competitive media environment. The successful candidate will be a true multi-media journalist, as comfortable taking photographs and video as they are writing stories.

A diverse and dynamic role, the opportunity suits an ambitious reporter eager to make their mark, showcasing their reporting talent and displaying originality of thought in their writing.

Our staff are our biggest asset and we work hard to provide a diverse and inclusive environment where development, succession and recognition are promoted.
