Job description:

The Southern Highland News seeks a journalist to work in its editorial department, specifically in the sport's department.

This position is a max term contract for 12 months on a part time basis (22.8 hours per week) in the Bowral office.  

This is a chance to join a talented, energetic reporting team.

The digital audience of The Southern Highland News continues to grow and so successful candidates will have a passion and talent for multi-platform journalism.

An encyclopedic knowledge of sport is not essential, but a drive to learn, to work hard and a curiosity about people and their stories is.

As our preferred candidate, you will have:

  • Demonstrated excellence in writing balanced and accurate reports to a high standard of spelling, grammar and style
  • The ability to use initiative and generate story ideas while working with minimal supervision
  • Proven skills in writing for digital platforms and tight deadlines
  • Digital production experience would be an advantage.

If you enjoy a dynamic working environment, you will thrive in our collaborative team culture, which is helping Australian Community Media (ACM) build a stronger, sustainable and modern media network of newspapers and websites serving regional, rural and suburban Australia.

Fairfax Media embraces all aspects of diversity & inclusion and is committed to creating a workplace which reflects the incredibly diverse customers, audiences and communities we serve.
