The Big Idea

Do you believe the Arts are the beating heart of Aotearoa? Do you love getting things done? Are you opinionated, know how to articulate those opinions and how to back them up with facts when required? 

New Zealand’s leading online hub for creatives wants to fill a new role that requires someone with a proven track record of co-ordinating freelance writers, editing their work, meeting the budget and ensuring that all material that gets published is sassy and targeted for our website and various social media channels. Oh, and you’ll be expected to write your own opinion piece as well. Does that sound a bit like you?

This is a freelance gig, likely to be around 15 hours a week.  The role requires responsiveness, so you need to be available for at least a couple of hours every weekday, but otherwise we are flexible as long as deadlines are met. Preferably you'll have a strong network across the arts.

You must be a skilled user of Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn) and ideally demonstrate familiarity with the likes of Google Drive/Docs, Google Analytics, Trello, Drupal and MailChimp. 

How to apply

Email chrissy.irvine@thebigidea.co.nz with your cover letter and CV.
Please also send us a piece (written by you) on what you think the current issue/s are in the arts in Aotearoa. 

Applications are due Friday 18th May at 5pm.
