The Music is recruiting five part-time contract positions to boost its local state-based coverage.

The positions, based in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, will be nine-month contracts with the journalists hired taking on stories based in their respective states including local venue news, reporting on up-and-coming scenes, up-and-coming artists and other local music stories that are important to building vibrant local music communities.

We are looking for live music fans who are tapped into the underground happenings of their local music scenes and can write about and advocate for their state industries on our national platform. Output will be largely written, however, we are interested in hearing from people with video and audio skills who want to explore the boundaries of journalism with us, whether that be our web, audio, social or newsletter platforms. 

Successful applicants will also attend BIGSOUND for onboarding and basic training, with the rest of the contract work from home. You will be working under the guidance of The Music’s editor and while this is not a trainee position, it is a unique opportunity for a passionate fan of music and writing who wants to increase their skills and contribute to the industry in a positive and professional environment.
