Social Media Journalist

  • Auckland Central

If you’re a news junkie with journalism or copywriting experience, we have the next step in your career sorted. The aim of the game is to continue to grow the New Zealand Herald’s audience size and engagement through the implementation of social channel content and platform strategies that reach new audiences and grow loyal brand fans. This will mean working closely with various reporters, section editors, and desks across the newsroom.
Your fluency in identifying upcoming social trends and platforms is required along with sound judgement in sorting between emerging best practice and passing fads. You will be charged with building and leading conversations around our journalism with the credible, conversational voice of a digital native and be involved breaking news stories as well as planning long term campaigns and projects. A wide range of editing skills across text, photos, graphics and video will ensure your success in this fast-paced role.
You’ll fit in well around here if you’re bright, energetic and fun; if you embrace new and innovative ways to tell news stories on the social web and if you use data and insights to inform your decision making. If you love live social coverage and building audiences in these networks, want an environment where you can bring your whole self to work, dare to be different, challenge the status quo and where progression and development is a given, NZME’s the place for you!

TVC OF THE WEEK

Who’s it for: HelloFresh by Augusto

Why we like it: The latest player in the New Zealand meal-kit market, HelloFresh, has introduced itself by focussing on its customers and their feedback. The documentary style ad follows an unsuspecting customer Jaco while he’s cycling to work, in the park with his kids, or making his Hello Fresh decisions. A nice mix of humour and information about what the company offers.

Who’s it for: Warehouse Stationery by DDB 

Why we like it: Warehouse Stationery takes the printed family mementoes to a new level with a visiting grandchild bombarding Ma with numerous gifts with their own face plastered on them. It definitely showcases the range of printing options  – from cat bowls to fridge magnets to snow globes – to make your loved ones happy (and have a laugh) this Christmas. We’d like to see Ma feature in some more Warehouse Stationery ads.

Who’s it for: Barkers by Switch

Why we like it: While the beautiful shots of New Zealand would make anyone want to get up and adventure, we like that there’s a deeper meaning to this new campaign. With Barkers stepping up to be transparent about its environmental impact we’ll have to wait and see how this translates into action and change, but it’s a good place to start.
