Are you passionate about Australian film and TV? Do you have a nose for a good story and an eye for detail? Come and work for us! We’re currently recruiting a reporter to work across our print and digital platforms.
Currently the role is four days per week, based in Sydney. To be considered, you will have at least two years’ experience in the media industry and a university degree in journalism or communications.

You’ll also act as an ambassador for the title, attending functions, events, and festivals as required in both Sydney and interstate (when restrictions lift).
