We all crave something different, something better, as our wold changes, we must evolve with it, learning new things. It’s why we provide news and entertainment in 68 different languages. Because we can only succeed in the world when we are able to truly understand it. We are looking for people who want to come on a journey somewhere different, telling stories with a difference, and highlighting the wonderful differences we share.

About the role
SBS’ Audio & Languages Content (ALC) provides coverage in 68 languages across radio, web, and social media. We’re looking for a Digital Content Editor to find the best stories across our division and make them shine online.

Reporting to ALC’s Content Editor - Output and working alongside two counterparts, the Digital Content Editor coordinates, optimises and promotes digital content from multiple language teams in ALC.

About you 
We’re looking for a driven, organised, can-do individual to contribute to ALC’s online success, working as a strong leader, a digital lynchpin, and a star collaborator between ALC’s language teams, digital content team, and other SBS content divisions. 

You will coordinate daily news content production and projects between these areas, focusing specifically on an assigned group of languages. You will also work closely with the relevant group’s Program Manager/s and Executive Producers to ensure the digital strategy is on track to meet set KPIs.

Most of all, you will be a digital content expert - a bastion of knowledge and advice for ALC language teams, coaching and collaborating on editorial / publishing best practice, digital strategy, and story development across teams.

We’re looking for someone with in-depth knowledge of world news and current affairs, able to practice and preach social media strategy, SEO, journalism standards, ideally with a working knowledge of Facebook marketing. At least two years’ experience in a leading editorial role is essential, as well as a proven track record of digital publishing, content coordination, and growing audiences with engaging, shareable digital content.

The Benefits
In return you can expect a supportive environment within a dynamic media organisation and benefits such as free onsite parking (subject to availability), free gym access, retail discounts at select stores and many other perks.

At SBS, we embrace difference and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds. As part of our commitment to closing the gap, we strongly encourage people of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background to apply.

We are audience obsessed and your candidate experience is important to us. We know that everyone is unique and experiences job applications differently. We are committed to making reasonable adjustments to provide a positive, barrier free recruitment process – at the end of the day, we don’t want anything getting in the way of us getting to know you a bit better.
