Are you an experienced journalist looking for a new challenge? Would you like to run your own newspaper? If you've answered ''yes'' to both these questions, then we have just what you're looking for!  NZME is seeking an Editor to lead its flagship central North Island newspaper, the Taupō-Tūrangi Weekender.

You'll have plenty of experience on community or regional papers, with a flair for breaking news and telling relentlessly interesting stories.

A strong sense of community will be important to you, as will an interest what is happening around you.

And, of course, you will be a terrific reporter, with a keen nose for news and generating story ideas alongside a flair for writing.

Strong organisational and time-management skills are vital as is a can-do positive attitude.

This is a writing-editing role and a willingness to lead from the top and also roll your sleeves up to get work done is vital.

Sound good? It gets better because this role is based in Taupō but you can live there or in the surrounding central North Island, near lakes and ski fields and the North Island's major centres. Some work from home might also be an option.

In return, NZME offers the support of a national media and entertainment company, with learning and development opportunities.

Opportunities such as this are rare, so if this interests you don't delay in applying!

Applicants must be legally entitled to work in New Zealand.

Applications close Wednesday, 6th October 2021.
