This is a Fixed Term, full time role until 30 June 2024. The role is dependent on funding, however, it is highly likely funding will continue the following financial year.

Wangki Radio was established in the late 1980s, when Elders and community, seeing the fast growth of media technology, decided to create a local radio station to service the needs of local people. They needed a way to pass on culture, maintain language, share stories, news and music. Wangki Radio commenced as a segment on ABC Kimberley. Now, 30 years later, we broadcast to over 40 communities in the Fitzroy Valley and have an active social media following.

To be successful in this position you must be a versatile, all-rounder, with excellent interpersonal skills, be able to operate effectively in a culturally diverse environment, specifically within First Nations community contexts, possess strong administrative skills, have a background in radio with on-air and audio production experience, have some technical ability in radio operations and be comfortable living in a remote, tropical location.
