Woroni is hiring several News Reporters to join our fantastic team and get first-hand experience in journalism.
News Reporters regularly write articles for Woroni News on events and issues that impact ANU students. They are expected to engage with campus life, write, on average, an article a week, and attend weekly team meetings. The role will also involve attending various events throughout the semester, like festivals, non-autonomous collective meetings, protests etc. News Reporters must be able to: write concisely and accurately; meet deadlines at short notice; pitch story ideas; and be confident in independently investigating issues further.
This is a volunteer role. However, News Reporters can expect to receive an honorarium based on their commitment to the role at the end of the Semester.
Applicants do not need prior experience.
Woroni is hiring a Senior Reporter to help manage our News Team and get experience in journalism and editing.
Senior Reporters both write and edit articles. They are a senior-sub editor, meaning they take some responsibility for helping manage the News Team. In practice, this includes overseeing News Reporters writing articles, editing their work, and providing advice on specific issues. The workload of Senior Reporters varies from week to week, but usually consists of one article per week, and editing other reporters’ articles. Senior reporters are also expected to attend weekly team meetings, fortnightly senior sub-editor meetings and occasional meetings between the Senior Reporters and the News Editor. Senior Reporters should be organised, capable of providing even-handed criticism, and capable of working with other people.
Applicants with prior experience in student journalism and reporting are preferred.
This is a volunteer role. However, Senior Reporters can expect to receive an honorarium based on their commitment to the role at the end of the Semester.
