JOBS: Australia Correspondent Needed

Australia Correspondent

The New York Times is seeking an experienced, entrepreneurial journalist with excellent writing skills to open a new bureau in Australia and to anchor our presence in the country. This is a terrific opportunity to be a pioneer for The Times, leading us into a market that is an important part of our international expansion strategy and introducing our readers to a continent with an untapped reservoir of fascinating stories. The mission is to tell those stories to Australians themselves and to the world.
We are looking for someone with deep knowledge of Australia and a passion for covering the issues that resonate both with Australians and our global audience: immigration, politics, climate change and the environment, China’s rise in the Pacific and its role in Australia’s resource-driven economy, gender and more.
This journalist will focus on enterprise reporting from Australia for our readers around the world, but will also seek to build the Times’ audience in Australia, where we already have a dedicated following that is hungry to hear more from us. We want someone eager to range across the country, reacting quickly to news as necessary but also writing thoughtfully and deeply about important issues and events. The ideal candidate will be a player-coach who will supervise and guide a small team of journalists also working on news and enterprise from Australia; work with potential editorial partners in Australia, including on investigative projects; and team up with other Times correspondents who we hope will be visiting Australia more frequently.
Applicants for this position are invited to submit a memo outlining their vision. Some important questions to wrestle with are:
    • What audiences should we be focusing on?
    • How should we be telling these stories? News? Features? Profiles? Newsletters? Audio, video, virtual reality?
    • How can we build a robust, deeply engaged community around our coverage?
    • How will we distinguish our coverage from other journalism in and about Australia?
    • What should the team look like to get it done? What skills should your colleagues have to complement yours?
The ideal candidate will have some of these qualities:
    • Knowledge of Australia and its place in the world.
    • Broad international reporting experience, preferably for a global news organization.
    • A keen eye for news and other great stories, borne of experience reporting, writing or otherwise creating stories as well as assigning, shaping and editing them.
    • A commitment to understanding the needs and behaviors of our audience, including who and what we’re competing with for their time and attention, and familiarity with the toolkit for reaching audiences with our journalism.
    • Leadership and management skills, including the ability to attract and develop talent.
    • Commitment to The New York Times’s strategy, standards and mission.
This non-guild position will be based in Sydney, and is open to internal and external candidates.

 Applicants should submit a resume and a memo outlining their vision to Michael Slackman and Lydia Polgreen at nytrecruit@nytimes. com
