Byteside is hiring an Editorial Assistant - are you the one?

Byteside, an Australian digital publisher and content studio (you know, us), is seeking a part-time Editorial Assistant to join the team. Byteside is rapidly growing its brand content production arm and requires a junior assistant to help produce podcasts, articles, and other content formats.

The ideal candidate enjoys exploring all aspects of digital industries and wants to develop skills in written, audio and video content production. You must have an interest in consumer technology, ICT and innovation and their various impacts on business and consumer life.

If you see a business technology acronym and like to hunt down what it means and how it's changing the world, you just might be the right fit for Byteside.

Candidates can be based anywhere in Australia with access to reliable broadband access suitable for video conferencing and sharing of large AV files for production workflows.

Duties of this role include:

  • Assisting in podcast production and editing
  • Assisting on production and creation of presentations and webinars
  • Analysis of long form interviews for key quotes and highlights
  • Drafting newsletters and social posts for various platforms
  • Curating content for social channels and weekly newsletters
  • Curating and collating research for various content formats
  • Monitoring news channels for editorial opportunities
  • Writing occasional articles about technology and digital culture industries
  • Other assistant duties as required

We have no minimum requirements for past experience but samples of past work writing about technology and digital culture industries will be looked on favourably. Any past experience writing on behalf of brands or experience in IT fields would also be a plus.

This role will be paid as a Band 1 position according to the Journalists Published Media Award 2020, with all duties performed under close supervision, with a final Band 1 level dependent on experience. The part-time role is aimed toward a 50% equivalent of a full-time position over five days.
