Want to break stories, advocate for New Zealanders, make a difference where it counts and be part of a diverse news team? Here's your chance: We are looking for senior reporters to join our award-winning newsrooms.

We have opportunities available in Auckland at The New Zealand Herald - described by judges at this year’s Voyager Media Awards as a “powerhouse news operation” - as well as at the Northern Advocate, in Whangarei, at Hawke's Bay Today, in Hastings and Newstalk ZB in Christchurch (see other advertisement).

We’re looking for skilled journalists with flair and tenacity. It should go without saying you have a passion for news, a track record of finding great stories and the ability and drive it takes to foot it in today’s ultra-competitive media environment.

The roles are full time and will require regular weekend work. Here at NZME, we boast a company culture where we tell it like it is, challenge the status quo, dare to try and have fun at work. We value learning and development in our biggest asset – our staff.

Top-rated reporters with experience in multimedia should apply without delay, enclosing a CV, cover letter and recent examples of published work.

Applicants must be New Zealand residents or have a valid work permit.
