“Power Rangers” is a half-hour international children’s action show, currently being produced in Glen Eden, Auckland. The Power Rangers Story Department is looking for an assistant.

The successful applicant will join an experienced story team working on this fast turn-around television series. This is an administrative role where you can gain experience as part of a professional writing department.

Successful applicants will have written film/TV scripts of their own before, and therefore possess some experience with screenwriting software (Final Draft) and format. They will be self-motivated, disciplined, professional, and have a great attitude. The role includes proofreading, so good grammar and keen attention to detail is crucial. While experience in an office environment is a plus, this role would suit a recent graduate. 


  • It will be a freelance independent contract.
  • The contractor must be a New Zealand resident or citizen.
  • Contract Fee:  $900.00 TO $1,200.00 per 5 day week (depending on experience).
  • Hours: This is a full-time 50 hour, 5-day a week position. Work days may vary. Occasionally there will be the need to work overtime, so some flexibility is required.
  • Dates:  Approximately May 2018 – June 2019.
  • Location: Power Rangers’ offices are in Glen Eden, Auckland.
  • Selection Process: A shortlist of applicants will be interviewed.
How to apply



  • A CV, including:
    • Cover letter.
    • Details of relevant experience.
    • Writing sample – this could be a screenplay, teleplay or short film (no more than 15 pages – excerpts from a larger work are fine.).
  • PLEASE NOTE: All Applicants acknowledge and agree that:
    a. Power Rangers Productions LTD receives many ideas, scripts and projects for consideration or assessment and it is possible that some of the ideas, scripts and projects already under consideration or submitted after the date of this application may be similar or identical to some or all of the project submissions;
    b. The Applicant will not hold Power Rangers Productions liable in any way for the use of ideas of a general or generic nature contained in the submission (including, without limitation, any idea, theme, situation, geographic area and/or period in history).
