The ABC’s Regional & Local team is all about Australian communities and their conversations. Our teams create unique and distinctive content that connect communities and shape lives in metropolitan, regional and remote Australia. From our eight capital city radio stations, our forty four regional bureaux, through to screen, live events and sport, Regional & Local is about real people, real places and real life.

Are you an experienced content maker who thrives on breaking stories and driving the creation and delivery of content for local and national audiences?  Do you love coaching and developing your colleagues to be their best?  Have you thought about moving into a leadership role but you aren’t sure if being THE leader is the right fit for you?  Are you looking for a sea change but don’t want to live too far from the big smoke?

Well, this may be the role that ticks every box.  Working in the second largest city in NSW, this role gives you the best of both worlds: career satisfaction through editorial and people leadership in a large station, balanced with living in a beautiful regional and coastal city. 

You will be an experienced news content maker that can create original content across all platforms.  You will drive the delivery of content that is distinctive, compelling and engaging, and inspire the team to do the same.  You will bring to the role established relationships with R&L colleagues and News.  You will be motivated to support the Chief of Staff to develop the team and create a collaborative and high performance culture. This is your chance to put your stamp on this rare and exciting position and live in a beautiful part of the country.
