ABC regional radio positions open up

28 regional roles are currently  advertised by the ABC.

These are the first batch of regionally-based roles as part of the ABC’s Investing in Audiences strategy announced in March.

It’s committed to investing $50 million in new content and create 80 new jobs in rural and regional Australia.

“Investing in Audiences” involves a number of interlocking initiatives designed to strengthen the Corporation and enhance its ability to deliver on its Act and Charter and serve the community.

The key initiatives are:

  • Creating a $50 million fund open to all employees to source new ideas for content
  • Investing $15 million per year in regional jobs and extra digital and video output as a key part of the Fund
  • Implementing a new streamlined leadership team and structure
  • Reducing management by 20% and addressing duplication in support roles
  • Signalling a transition to a more audience-focussed content structure over the next 12 months
  • Delivering additional production and support efficiencies across ABC TV and ABC News.
