We’re on the hunt for a wonderful new Kaiwāwahi to join the Pantograph Punch and lead our editorial vision. This person has their finger on the pulse and a passion for the arts, and writing. This person will be able to warmly support a broad range of writers, and sustain our readers by bringing a new and electric editorial voice to the tīma. Our coverage lies across a range of art forms, so whether your heart lies in theatre, visual arts or literature, we’d love to hear from you.

Our current Kaiwāwahi editor role is a part-time role of 0.6 FTE (24 hours a week), calculated at 70k pro-rata. This role has the potential to grow in terms of hours and pay.


A full job description is available on our website here. We especially encourage applications from candidates who bring their own unique cultural knowledge to their work, and can demonstrate their commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and to platforming under-represented voices in Aotearoa. 


To apply for this role, please send through:


  • A relevant CV including work history and examples of editorial experience

  • A short cover letter that introduces yourself, your editorial vision for The Pantograph Punch and explains why you are a strong candidate for the role.

Applications are due on Friday 19th August, 11:59pm.

Start date: Ideally our Kaiwāwahi will begin work in September 2022, although this can be negotiated with the successful candidate.   


Shortlisted applicants are expected to be available for interview, and to provide referees upon request.
