Visuals Editor

This is a great opportunity to lead and enhance RNZ’s multimedia journalism.

We’re looking for a Visuals Editor to drive our visual storytelling across all our platforms – online and our multimedia shows.

You’ll work with people across RNZ to deliver original, in depth, live and diverse multimedia journalism. You’ll lead a team of visual journalists telling high quality, original and comprehensive stories that reflect New Zealand.

You will need a track record in managing breaking news, delivering original stories, be able to grasp complex situations quickly, communicate concisely and effortlessly, think laterally, and remain calm at all times.

You’ll be a person people love to talk to and work for, and you will be skilled at using persuasion rather than authority to make things happen.

You’ll work with editorial colleagues to tell visual stories that audiences enjoy and are engage by, and which are true to the principles of public service journalism.

The position can be based in Auckland or Wellington and will start in January.


If this is you, send us your application by close of business on Friday 14 December.


Please note: A complete application includes your covering letter and a CV.
