Full-Time Regional Editor – Whitsundays

Nicola PowellCannonvale, Queensland, Australia

Job Description

WANT to edit a small suite of dynamic, non-dailies located in one of the country’s most desired regions for lifestyle?

The Bowen Independent, Whitsunday Times and Whitsunday Coast Guardian regional editor will play a vital role in delivering relevant and highly engaging content in print  and  online.

We are looking for an editorial leader who will thrive on being challenged and love leading journalists working across two fast-paced, multi-platform newsrooms in Bowen and Airlie Beach.

The editor will be a people person who will enjoy building strong relationships and networks within the local communities.

The newspapers are part of News Corp’s 70-plus regional non-dailies in Queensland and NSW, and the ideal stepping stone for someone wanting to break into leadership ranks.

The mastheads are embedded in their communities and are a trusted print source, but there is a strong digital focus.

We are looking for an editor who can:

  • Oversee the editorial operations of the brands (print and digital) with a view to sustaining print readership and growing digital audiences;
  • Not be afraid to delegate print publication to grow the digital focus;
  • Champion local issues and campaign on behalf of the community on topics of mutual interest;
  • Be heavily involved in the local community, setting a positive tone for a community and masthead needing inspired leadership;
  • Lead a team of four editorial staff and empower them to reach their full potential;
  • Be a proactive driver of change in a constantly evolving media landscape.
  • Be smart enough to know what drives readership, and what not to waste their time on.

How to Apply

If you have the drive, passion and expertise, we would like to hear from you. Send your CV, with a cover letter, detailing why you are the right person for this role, to Denise Pickering, editor-in-chief non-dailies, at denise.pickering@apn.com.au

Applications close 5pm, Monday, 23 April 2018.
