Junkee Media hunting for editor able to cover finance, career and health for unnamed site

Junkee MediaYouth publisher Junkee Media is set to launch a new site to sit alongside the publisher’s existing brands Junkee, inthemix, FasterLouder and AWOL, with the company advertising for a full-time editor to help launch the new section.

The content looks to diverge slightly from the current style of Junkee with the editor job description stating: “You’ll be able to find, create and commission great content that stands out from the crowd around the topics of finance, jobs, money, career, health and wellbeing, and figure out how to find the best angle that’s most going to interest Junkee Media’s 18- to 35-year-old audience.”

Tim Duggan, Junkee Media publisher, wouldn’t divulge details of the new site but said the new title will be mobile first and native led.

“Just like our audience, we’re always curious and looking for new ideas. Each year Junkee Media conducts one of the largest research studies into young Australians looking at trends and emerging areas of interest. This year our research has uncovered a gap in the youth market that’s not being filled. Just like the rest of our titles, it will be mobile first and native led, and we’ll be launching later this year. Watch this space!” he said.

Junkee Media, which rebranded from Sound Alliance early last month, are on the hunt for an “exception editor and writer with over five years experience in developing their skills”.

“The ideal candidate will be a super fast writer with the ability to nail the right tone of each piece, delivering consistently high quality copy each time, every time,” the job ad reads.

The news of the new site comes after Junkee Media brought its media agency sales back in-house last month.

In other job-related news, tech giant Apple continues to hunt for a News Editor to curate its soon-to-launch Apple News app while Guardian Australia also continues its search for a Guardian Labs editor.
