ASSISTANT EDITOR AND ONLINE EDITOR - SMITH JOURNAL

Are you a top-notch writer and editor – half nerd, half cool – who gets just as fired up about digital content as you do about long-form print journalism? We’re after a creative, detail-oriented journalist/editor to join the multi-award winning publisher, frankie press, on one of our flagship titles: Smith Journal. The role encompasses assisting our editor in producing the quarterly print edition (writing, researching, interviewing, editing, problem-shooting) and taking control of our website and social media (sourcing content, commissioning contributors, creating sharable Smith stuff).

We want someone who ‘gets’ Smith, is curious-minded about pretty much every subject under the sun and genuinely enjoys unearthing arcane information and sharing it with the world. Working closely with our editor and editor-in-chief – as well as design, marketing and ad teams – you’ll come up with story ideas, write articles, run online contributors and direct all digital content. You’ll know what makes a sentence sing, and where to bung a semicolon. You’ll understand writing for smart and savvy audiences, and have a good sense of design and photography (and humour) too.

Requirements:
- A university degree
- At least three years’ experience in an editorial role
- A demonstrated ability to come up with a shedload of ideas, and write smart stories in a variety of formats
- Excellent sub-editing and proofreading skills
- Experience with social media management and strategy
- Experience working with Photoshop, Google Analytics, content management systems and EDM distribution
- Knowledge of fact-checking, media law and basic copyright requirements
- Video and audio skills would be nice, too

This is a full-time position based in our South Melbourne office, literally metres away from some of the best coffee in town. We offer a collaborative and super-supportive team environment filled with excellent and hard-working people.

To apply, please:
1. Download and complete the application form here
2. Include a brief CV (preferably with written references)
3. Include three relevant samples of your published stories
4. Email the above as attachments to editorialjobs@frankiepress.com.au
Please put ‘Smith Journal Assistant Editor and Online Editor’ in the subject line.

Applications close Wednesday June 28.
