2 positions available - Temporary / Full time

We have one full time temporary opportunity until August 2020 and one permanent part time (two days a week) opportunity.

Who you are:

You love to check out the latest innovative interactive making the social media rounds (logging it, perhaps, as inspiration for future projects.) You devour the news. You’re excited about the possibilities that digital offers. You love the craft of writing and feel privileged to tell people’s stories. You’re tapped in to local communities and want to give them a voice. You listen and know that no detail is too small to get right. You ask why — a lot. You doggedly pursue stories and feel comfortable working on your own, but know that news is collaborative. You want to work as part of a team to provide the best content for Manitobans. You’re not happy with the bare minimum of effort, instead taking every story one step further. You may not know all of CBC’s online tools but you’re technically adept and willing to learn. Your true love is the written word, but you are keen to try radio and TV so you can understand their needs when gathering your own stories.

If this is you, we’d love for you to apply for our online reporter positions.

Who we are:

CBC Manitoba, like all of CBC’s regional centres, believes in the importance of content, community and internal culture.

As part of our team, you’d play a key role in focusing on these three priorities outlined in our Local Services strategy:

Content: In this role, you will ensure that all CBC journalistic standards are met and that our stories are fair, balanced, accurate, thoughtful and immediate, and resonate with the communities we serve. You will further our original, enterprise and investigative storytelling and ensure we are talking about what matters most to people throughout Winnipeg and the rest of the province. You’re innovative and will try new things, new workflows and new story treatments. You inspire others to do the same.

Community: As the industry shifts, local news and community storytelling is more important than ever. You will understand the diverse and changing population in Manitoba and the importance of reflecting all our communities in our content.

Culture: You live and promote the values of diversity and an inclusive and respectful work culture.

Key tasks:
Chase stories, interview sources and write stories.
Package stories with the best photos and most engaging video clips, plus links and other multimedia.
Write stories based on gathered interviews or live-streamed events, filling gaps as needed.
Write headlines that draw people in both on the website and mobile devices.
Quickly write breaking news stories.
Curate the online news lineup.
Take photos with a DSLR.
Edit stories written by team members when needed.
Pitch original story ideas.
Post stories on social media accounts.
Education RequirementsA university degree or equivalent preferred.

Excellent communication skills.
Advanced knowledge of web, mobile and social media tools and industry trends.
Ability to generate original, enterprise journalism.
High energy and enthusiasm towards journalism.
Ability to work a variety of shifts including early starts, late finishes and weekends.
