There’s a great power in difference. We must see the world through a different lens and apply a filter on what’s important. It’s not about taking sides, but understanding them. We are looking for people who want to come on a journey somewhere different, tell stories with a difference and highlight the wonderful differences we share. In Indigenous News and Current Affairs, it makes a world of difference.

About the Role 

NITV is committed to driving a national conversation around Indigenous Affairs and increasing the presence of Indigenous voices and perspectives in the nation's media. Through programs like The Point, Living Black and NITV News, and across our growing digital platforms, we are investigating the issues and events that impact Australia's first peoples.

  • A solid understanding of Indigenous Affairs and the broader issues that affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
