Digital Editor - Dish

  • Auckland

One of New Zealand’s best-loved food magazines, Dish, is looking for a Digital Editor with a passion for food and lifestyle to manage and drive our digital platforms and have an active role in commercializing the brand’s digital offerings.

The ideal candidate will have five years’ experience in journalism, preferably in magazines, news or online, and be able to turn around copy efficiently and cleanly, have an eye for detail and be an experienced digital native. They must be self-motivated, hard-working and more than capable of managing and meeting their deadlines.

The role involves pitching, creating and editing lively original content for the website and social platforms. There will also be some content contribution to the magazine required. The successful applicant will have their finger on the pulse of what is new and noteworthy within the food and lifestyle space. Implementing Dish’s social media strategy is paramount to this role.

Social media never sleeps so this role involves some after-hours commitment, including events and launches.

The successful candidate will work closely with both the editorial and sales team and will have a role in meeting Dish’s commercial digital targets. Must be proficient in Google Analytics, have worked across CMS and social media insights platforms.

Dish is produced by ICG Media, New Zealand’s leading specialist media business focusing on deep engagement across all channels, with clearly targeted communities of interest. As part of the wider Image Centre Group, ICG Media is also at the forefront of content marketing as a specialist marketing discipline.

Who’s it for: New World by Clemenger Group

Why we like it: Showcasing the variety and faces of New World, and how its food gets from production to presentation to plate, makes for a colourful and enjoyable spot. It definitely made us a bit hungry watching the different iterations.

Who’s it for: AA Smartfuel by Rainger & Rolfe

Why we like it: This radio campaign is unexpected and funny – with a woman getting distracted by the app at the altar and car noises subbed in for what appears to be swear words during a chat between two mates. We really like the playful humour and effective touch, and look forward to further ads. 

Who's it for: Trade Me

Why we like it: Trade Me employees talk about acts of kindness done by its members for World Kindness Day, and thank its community. The examples will bring a smile to your dial and make you want to celebrate being a New Zealander.
