Te Manu Korihi Māori News Editor

Tēnā koutou katoa,

We are looking for a news editor/senior journalist with a reputation for breaking original stories and the necessary experience to lead our Te Manu Korihi Māori News team until 30 June 2019.

This fixed term role is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is passionate about Māori news and issues in Aotearoa and who can lead and work with a small, dedicated team.

You’ll love story-telling in its many forms, be as comfortable reporting live on breaking news as you are in providing background analysis, be skilled in multi-media, and adept at driving content which meets the needs of a wide audience across Aotearoa.

You will have worked at a senior editorial level in a newsroom and have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of Te Ao Māori.

You will be committed to the highest standards of journalism; have a keen news sense; and a proven track record as a team leader. You’ll be confident working across multiple platforms – including radio, digital, visual and social.

The role will work closely with senior RNZ News leaders to share Māori story-telling across all RNZ’s platforms.

This role could be based in either Wellington or Auckland. The fixed term will run until 30 June 2019.


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


Applications close 5pm Friday 26 October 2018

RNZ is committed to the principles and practices of Equal Employment Opportunity and welcome applicants who will help us reflect New Zealand’s cultural and ethnic diversity.
