Senior production coordinator

We have an exciting opportunity for a senior production coordinator to supervise our local central production support team for Guardian Australia’s digital output.

Guardian News & Media (GNM), publisher of theguardian.com, is a leading global media organisation. We are renowned for our pioneering independent journalism and our award-winning digital products.

We have an exciting opportunity for a senior production coordinator to supervise our local central production support team for Guardian Australia’s digital output.

In this role you will manage the daily flow of requests sent to the central production team, act as a local authority in incident management, be the first point of reference for central production staff in Australia, monitoring their work and managing the prioritisation and completion of daily tasks and project work. You will liaise between commercial and editorial departments to ensure transparency across the business and work closely with technical teams to ensure that digital production and publishing systems are working properly. You will also assist and advise on digital best-practice across the Guardian’s platforms and assist with the creation of visual materials including videos, podcasts, quizzes, responsive charts and graphs.

If you have previous production experience in a print or online environment, knowledge of the Guardian’s digital production systems and experience working in a changing and pressurised environment, we’d like to hear from you. An interest in web journalism and an understanding of the Guardian’s editorial values is also essential.

We believe that our role in the Australian media is to give a voice to the most marginalised people in society and value and respect all differences in all people — including people of colour, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from different social classes and people with disabilities (seen and unseen). We believe that these communities must be centred in the work we do, bringing a new perspective and a diversity of thought. We strongly encourage applications from people with these identities and/or marginalised groups.
