Woroni is looking for a News Reporter to join our brilliant News Team. The role of a News Reporter will be:

  • To write content for the magazine both for print and online, by responding to current events and issues on campus.
  • This can be overseeing a specific area of interest, or the role can encompass a wide array of topics and areas of university life. These areas can include postgrad issues, ANU research, housing issues, low SES awareness, international students, ANUSA, clubs and societies, mental health issues, workplace issues, arts events, higher education policies, university degree changes and funding changes.
  • To be aware of events and issues on campus for potential publication – you are the eyes and ears of the student body!

Reporters must be able to adhere to strict deadlines and to work as part of a large team, including other reporters, senior reporters and editors. They will be expected to attend weekly meetings and training sessions at the beginning of the semester.

As a reporter, you will be expected to write one article per week, which will be published in print and/or online. Reporters must have a clear understanding of spelling, grammar and structure in writing.

Ideal candidates will be a team player, a good planner but also good under pressure. Good communication skills are also essential as you will be conducting interviews face-to-face, on the phone and via email with varied stakeholders. Reporters can expect to receive an honorarium based on their commitment to the role at the end of the Semester.

Woroni is committed to diversity in hiring. We strongly encourage applications from people with diverse backgrounds, people of colour and people with disability.

Applications close on Friday the 30th of May at 5pm.
