Guardian Australia (www.theguardian.com/au) launched in May 2013 as part of Guardian News & Media (GNM), one of the largest English language newspaper websites in the world (www.theguardian.com).

We are recruiting for an assistant news editor to join our newsroom on a 12-month contract.

In this role you will work alongside other desk editors to help set Guardian Australia’s news agenda by planning, editing and commissioning news stories for the site. You will monitor news sources, commission correspondents and reporters, edit copy, ensure stories are well placed and optimised, plan and commission news features, develop ideas, help allocate resources for stories and engage with readers in an imaginative way.

The successful candidate will have significant journalistic experience, a good grasp of national and international news, experience working in a fast changing and pressurised environment, an understanding of the unique time pressures of digital journalism and a good understanding of Guardian values and media law.

We believe that our role in the Australian media is to give a voice to the most marginalised people in society and value and respect all differences in all people — including people of colour, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from different social classes and people with disabilities (seen and unseen). We believe that these communities must be centred in the work we do, bringing a new perspective and a diversity of thought. We strongly encourage applications from people with these identities and/or marginalised groups.

Contract length: 12 months

Application Deadline: 15/04/2021
