Casual Vacancy: News Editor

ANU Student Media is looking for an ANU student to fill a casual vacancy on our Board of Editors. The successful applicant will take on the role of News Editor, which includes, but is not limited to, managing and supervising news correspondents and writing news pieces for the Woroni newspaper, both in print and online.

The successful applicant will be expected to put in around 20-30 hours a week on average and will be paid an honorarium to compensate for their time. The position will commence on Sunday 26 March and conclude at the end of the academic year.  The role requires close collaboration with the seven other Board members, so an ability to work in a team is a must.

Your application must include;

  • your name;
  • student number;
  • year of study;
  • 300 words or less on your relevant experience;
