Digital Producer-Reporter Roles - Dunedin (fixed term)

We are currently looking for two enthusiastic and adaptable digital producer/reporters to join our team, with one of these being a junior role and one more experienced.

You’ll be working from the Video Hub inside our bustling Dunedin ODT newsroom, turning around engaging video content for the Otago Daily Times, and Allied Press’ regional publications in Otago and Southland.

Your major roles are processing, scripting, voicing, and editing video content provided by Allied Press’ regional reporters and Dunedin photographers, to create video clips which complement online/print stories, and make up the weeknightly news bulletin The South Today.  You’ll also be involved in compiling and delivering the bulletin, which is broadcast locally on Channel 39 TV and online.

You will have proven digital editing skills and track record of visual journalism and/or a recognised qualification. Experience with Adobe Premiere Elements or similar editing software is essential.  A broadcast-quality voice is required, although further training will be given.

There are also some opportunities to produce you own video content, which may include reports and photos, so experience and/or training in video and stills camera work is also desirable.

This role includes some evening and weekend work.
