We’re offering a 12 month Journalism Cadetship in 2019 to a person of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background who wants to build a career in broadcast journalism.

This is a great opportunity to join our highly regarded News and Current Affairs team!

As part of a team, the Cadet will be responsible for researching, producing and reporting news and current affairs content to the required SBS standards.  This full-time role will require shift-work, including evenings and weekends.

Ideally, you will have had training in television, radio and online journalism, or be able to demonstrate a strong interest in broadcast journalism and have a sound understanding of the social, political, and cultural issues affecting indigenous people in Australia.
