Are you the new RoadCycling.co.nz journalist?
Jul 24th, 12. RoadCycling.co.nz wants to know if there is a super supporter of NZ cycling out there who wants to join the team and be the prime journalist from here forward.
Due to the recent resignation of our first Assistant Editor - she decided the grass was greener in Australia - we are wondering who else is out there ready to fly the flag for Kiwi cycling.
If you are the right person, you would become the primary journalist - finding out and writing about all the great things Kiwi cyclists are doing within New Zealand and around the world. You would also be covering the cycling scene at World Tour level regardless of how many Kiwis are racing.
If cycling gear is your thing, you will also get to review and write about the latest and greatest new cycling products.
This role isn't for someone looking for an easy corporate job - it is a very demanding output driven role. People need new stories every day, and they want to read them over their morning coffee. Daily news needs to be published by 7.30am at the latest, so that means the alarm goes off early!
Are you a self starter, have you got lots of ideas on how to move RoadCycling.co.nz forward, and have you got the contacts and desire to implement those ideas?
We need someone who likes getting up early, loves writing, directs themselves, can work to strict deadlines, has great editing skills, good technical computer skills, and a passion for Kiwi cycling. It would be fantastic if you could take good photo snaps too. You would generally work from the comfort of your home office.
A typical day includes following national and international events, editing press releases, talking to pro - and soon to be pro - Kiwi cyclists, writing it all up and publishing into articles with appropriate images.
During the year there will be opportunities for travel to events, including the Benchmark Homes Elite Cycling Series, Tour of Southland, Mens and Womens Tour of Manawatu, Elite Nationals, and possibly the Tour Down Under or even the Tour de France - depending on how well you do at securing advertisers and sponsors, another very important part of this role.
The role is 40 hours a week, five days - but not always Monday to Friday.
Add anything to your email that would help us believe that you are the person to take RoadCycling.co.nz to the next level.
Ben & Sarah
