Political Reporter, Te Karere (Mahi Vacancy)

Matanga Torangapu o Te Karere: Te Tari Purongo (Te Whanganui a Tara).  Kia tika, kia pono, kia Maori

Ko Te Karere te ratonga kawe korero Maori o Te Reo Tataki o Aotearoa. Kua aua atu a ia e whakapaho ana i nga korero o te wa, i te reo Maori hoki ki te tini ngerongero.

Neke atu i te 1.6 miriona te hunga matakitaki i nga hotaka purongo o Te Reo Tataki ia ra, ia ra. Kei te whai te marea i nga tini ara whakapaho, pera i te pouaka whakaata, te hongere mati, te ipurangi me nga kawe reo.

Kei te kimi matou i te hunga e kaingakaunui nei ki te whai i tenei ao hou, ma roto mai i nga mahi kawe korero. No reira e whakarereke ana matou i te hanganga o te Tari Kawe Purongo, a, e whakawhanake ana matou i nga pumanawa o a matou kaikawe korero.

Kotahi anake te whainga, kia ahei ai te katoa ki te matakitaki, ki te hono mai hoki ki nga korero o te wa, ahakoa awhea, ahakoa ki whea.

Te Karere needs someone who knows what it is like to work in a fast paced, future-focused news and current affairs setting. Someone who can deliver reliable and accurate stories from the gallery, across all our platforms and programmes.

You’ll have an intense interest and proven experience in political reporting plus a real commitment to journalism. Ideally you’ll have a broad television journalism background and it would be great if you have previously covered a general election. You will also have a high understanding and fluency of te reo Maori.

You need to care about accuracy and not be afraid to work hard. “Keeping them honest” will need you to be tough and not shirk away from conflict, while operating fairly and ethically.
