New Zealand’s number one radio station is looking for a hard-working journalist, based in Whangarei, to provide Northland news to Newstalk ZB, the Radio Network stable of stations and the Newstalk ZB website.
 
The position requires someone who is prepared to work shifts, meet deadlines, gather and break hard news and sport stories and travel to breaking news events.
 
You must be able to develop fresh angles on stories, prepare tight scripts, edit audio, conduct hard-hitting interviews and be able to report live from the scene.
 
A broadcast quality voice is a must.  You also need to be forward thinking and have the ability to find good audio talent. You’ll be passionate about  breaking news, getting it right, but also getting it first. You will also be a self-starter and team player as this is a sole reporting position working to News Directors in Auckland.
 
It will be your role to cover both breaking news and on-going news stories throughout the Northland region, develop contacts and news sources and maintain a comprehensive diary of future events.  You will also be required to cover stories, over the phone, outside your area.
 
The hours of work will be varied and include night and weekend shifts.
 
This is a great opportunity for a young journalist willing to work hard and looking to gain experience in all facets of radio and website reporting.
 
Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work permit.
