Long Form Journalist, te ao Māori
About this role
RNZ is looking for a long form journalist, focused on te ao Māori.
You will generate original, beautifully-crafted, in-depth journalism that breaks stories, examines issues and/or entertains.
Your stories will often be for a Māori audience and/or about Māori. They will be told in the style, medium/s and on the platform/s that best suits the individual story and is best positioned to reach a Māori audience.
Skills & Experience
- be an intermediate-level journalist who has worked in a news or long form role for at least two years
- love to write and have a keen interest in broadcasting
- have knowledge of tikanga, te reo and te ao Māori, and will have experience making and working with contacts in te ao Māori.
In this role, you will be given the time and support to chase down stories that matter and then craft them to a high standard.
RNZ is a leader in delivering important stories across multiple digital platforms while continuing to build on our excellence in public service broadcasting and multimedia to further develop lifelong relationships with the people of Aotearoa.
You will join the friendly and focused In Depth team, who are based in RNZ’s Auckland office (ideally, you will be based in Auckland too, but we’re less focused on this than on getting the right person) and you will have the support of our Māori news team and our Kurahautū Māori too.
