Sudbury.com is looking for a talented, enthusiastic new media reporter/videographer to create and produce videos and write stories for our award-winning news website. This job is an 18-month maternity leave contract.
Northern Ontario's largest city, Greater Sudbury has an economy based in mining, but with strong health, education and service sectors, and a thriving arts and culture community.
Sudbury.com is a provincial and national award-winning news and information portal, part of the Village Media network of news websites. Billing ourselves as "Your home for everything Sudbury," Sudbury.com has a reputation for objectivity and accuracy, and we pride ourselves on being different.
The successful candidate will be a go-getter with a desire to chase down stories, to help grow our audience, and to self-generate story ideas for video. We love people who think differently. A demonstrable ability to shoot, produce and edit compelling, professional-quality video news pieces — either alone or in conjunction with a reporter — is a must.
The successful candidate will also be comfortable with creating, filming, hosting and troubleshooting livestream coverage of events. They will also have a thorough understanding of the importance of social media in today's news cycle, and an enthusiasm and ability to use social media to find stories and spread the reach of stories we produce.
We offer a competitive salary and strong health coverage for our employees.
Interested candidates should send a resume, samples and a cover letter to Community Editor Mark Gentili at firstname.lastname@example.org.
