Timaru, New Zealand
12d ago

We are now seeking an experienced journalist and leader to help drive the news agenda for New Zealand's biggest news site Stuff, The Timaru Herald and Neighbourly.

As the Chief News Director for South Canterbury you will be responsible for leading a team of news directors who commission and publish high-

quality content to meet the needs of our audience across our digital and print platforms.

This is a busy, demanding and exciting role, based in Timaru. You'll need impeccable news instincts, high standards and creative flair.

You'll need to be decisive, supremely organised, and adept at juggling competing demands on your attention. Experience running a newsroom will be a definite advantage -

you'll need a proven ability to handle leading coverage of big local and national stories.

Do you like the idea of helping Kiwis connect and thrive in their communities? That's what we do. With a longstanding history of award-

winning journalism, every month we reach an engaged audience of more than 3 million Kiwis across digital, newspapers, magazines and events.

You'll know how to judge the best platform or format for any story - whether that's data analysis, a video explainer, an opinion column, a long-

form interactive, an inverted pyramid news story, or many other formats.

You'll combine a healthy respect for audience insights and traffic metrics with an unrelenting desire to be both first and best.

You'll enjoy the challenge of continuing to grow Stuff's audience, retaining our position as NZ's most popular news and entertainment site, and pushing the boundaries of storytelling innovation.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity for someone who is passionate about creating world-class digital journalism and wants to have fun while they work.

If this sounds like you, then connect with us today.

Stuff embraces all aspects of diversity and inclusion and is committed to creating a workplace that reflects the incredibly diverse customers, audiences and communities we serve.
