Written by: Louise Bianco

Our Community is seeking an energetic journalist to join their busy team.

This is a full-time position – starting immediately – and requires the following skills.


  • A degree in journalism
  • Exemplary English skills – written and verbal (including excellent grammar)
  • Adaptable writing style – hard news, features, instructional copy
  • Ability to follow instructions and work independently
  • Attention to detail (no, really – we want someone who writes clean copy)
  • Knowledge of HTML (though don’t rule yourself out if you have everything except this – it’s easy to learn)
  • Knowledge of/experience in not-for-profit sector communications (again, not essential, but nice to have)
  • Happy to work in an informal (you don’t have to dress up), open plan (no walls or dividers) office in West Melbourne (city fringe) with a team of 20+ (including three writers and Betsy, our greyhound office dog)

To apply: email kathyr@ourcommunity.com.au. Please introduce yourself briefly and attach a copy of your CV and two news articles (published or unpublished) as an example of your work.

Applications close: Midnight, Monday November 4, 2013
