COOK ISLANDS NEWS: Journalists wanted in paradise
Kia orana, voyage with us to paradise!
They call it the dream job: Cook Islands News in Rarotonga is hiring:
* A good photojournalist who will bring in photos that talk, and stories that sing;
* An accomplished subeditor to help the Editor and design team produce the website, social media pages, and a vibrant 16 to 24-page daily compact paper;
* A job-share proofreader, working early evening two or three nights a week, who will catch us when we fall.
These are jobs for people who get up in the morning excited about the day ahead, who approach every problem as a challenge, who love meeting people and immersing themselves in their community. We value applicants with a knowledge of Pacific people, culture, issues and current affairs.
Due to family bereavement, the Cook Islands Niue Community & Friends Public Meeting scheduled for Thursday 19 September 2019 is postponed till further notice.
