SBS is one of the most unique media organisations in the world. Our News and Current Affairs team has developed a cutting edge digital strategy and wants a journalist who shares our vision of increasing quality content online. SBS wants to lead the way in the delivery of distinctive output across multiple platforms. The network is for all Australians, with a strong mandate for news stories to support, celebrate and appreciate the diversity of Australia’s multicultural society.
The right applicant will be passionate about reporting on and producing news stories to the highest editorial standards. You will cover anything from the top international and national stories of the day as well as those highlighting Australia’s diverse communities and will need to turn around quick, accurate news copy, as well as being able to write the occasional feature.
You must be a seasoned journalist and social media user with strong digital production and editorial skills, along with an in-depth understanding of local and international news and current affairs. You will be a creative thinker knowing how to grow audiences on our website and engagement on our social media platforms.
