  • Liaise with the Media and Communications Co-ordinator to assign images, schedule posts on social media and prioritise items for placement in our newsletters
  • Conduct simple keyword research and use SEO guidelines and tagging to increase web traffic
  • Identify gaps in our content and recommend new topics
  • Ensure writing and tone consistency and adherence to the REIQ style guide and voice and is optimised for web 

About you

  • Three+ years’ experience as a digital journalist or editorial content writer (property, economics or finance space is preferred)
  • Experienced at researching, using multiple sources
  • Excellent writing and editing skills for web
  • Experience with or an ability to learn Content Management Systems

It’s an exciting time at the REIQ, so if you’re interested in stretching your digital journalism skills further, while learning the ins and outs of the real estate industry, we’d love to hear from you. 

Please apply via this platform including a covering letter, a copy of your current resume and a portfolio of your published work, addressed to the Senior Content Producer.
