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 a team of news reporters, ensuring ANUSM is reporting and investigating news for the ANU student body, and writing and editing news pieces.

The successful applicant will be expected to put in around 20-30 hours a week on average and can expect to be paid an honorarium to compensate for their time. The position will commence on Wednesday 15 May and conclude on the last day of the semester two examination period. The role requires close collaboration with the seven other Board members, so an ability to work in a team is a must.

Experience in editing and team management will be helpful but by no means a necessary requirement for potential applicants.

If you are at all interested we invite you to send your application to with the subject line “ANUSM Board Casual Vacancy Application”.

Your application must include;

  • your name;
  • student number;
  • year of study;
  • 300 words or less on your relevant experience;
  • 300 words or less on why you want to be news editor at ANUSM;
  • 300 words or less about your vision for the news portfolio; and
  • one example of any written, photographic, audio, videographic or multimedia work.

Applications will close on Monday 13 May, at 6pm.

Interviews may be conducted from Monday 13 May to Tuesday 14 May.
