Join the Hurricanes Media Team this summer

24 September 2019

The Hobart Hurricanes are seeking three hard-working, proactive and passionate media interns for the upcoming WBBL and BBL seasons.

A more detailed position description is provided below for each role however each  would suit a Journalism or Media student who holds a knowledge of cricket and a drive to succeed in the media industry.

Working with the guidance of the Hurricanes Media & Digital Manager, there are two ‘all-rounder’ type roles available.

One for the WBBL season (mid-October to early December) and another for the BBL season (mid-December to early February) both of which will provide students with an invaluable insight to the fast-paced nature of the Big Bash where they’ll be able to put their editorial and social media training into practice in-line with the Hurricanes Digital Strategy and build a solid portfolio of work.

The third role will suit a student who loves being creative and ideally loves their cricket or sport. The Hurricanes are looking to introduce more video to their content strategy moving forward and this position will be key to its success. It will suit somebody who can shoot and edit video at speed - in-line with the fast-paced summer of cricket’s news cycle, and who has an endless pot of ideas to bring to life. This role will be in place throughout the BBL season (mid-December – early February).
 
Roles 2 and 3 could require working on Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve and Australia Day.

Each role will require working late nights at times and potentially on weekends.

Cricket Tasmania will cover the costs of any travel required with these positions.
