Job Description

THE Observer newspaper in Gladstone has a golden opportunity for a switched-on digital producer/reporter.

The Observer is leading the way with its digital coverage of the news – local, state and national – to complement its strong print presence in the community.

As part of the News Corp group, The Observer is part of a group of papers leading the way and breaking new ground in the digital news world while maintaining a strong print presence in the community.

We now need a dedicated digital guru to take us that next step further in growing our online audience.

You not only need to be a crack reporter, you also need to be an accomplished and dynamic digital expert.

We need someone who lives and breathes the news, can keep an ear out for the breaking news in the community while also digging deep online to uncover those documents and stories that keep our audience informed.

It is essential you have a demonstrated record of increasing page views and unique visitors across all reader categories on a news online site.

We need someone who can constantly keep up to date with latest technologies, the latest online trends, digital additions and social media to create and distribute compelling online content.

We need someone who knows social media and knows how to work it.

Experience working in a pressure newsroom situation and leading a team of reporters to seize the opportunities in Gladstone’s biggest news and get the best out of their stories will also be favourably viewed.

Gladstone is on its way back after a massive LNG-construction boom but is still an affordable and desirable place to live with natural wonders and a thriving industry.
