Australia’s Magazine of the Year, Take 5, is looking for a feature writer.

If you’re a journalist who loves sharing everyday Aussies’ true stories - chasing leads, interviewing with empathy and writing features that make readers gasp, cry and laugh out loud, we want to hear from you.

As a Feature Writer you would be responsible for chasing, commissioning and writing articles for all sections of the magazine, from gritty crime reads and tributes to loved ones, stories about con artists and love rats, quirky tales from true characters and inspiring accounts of triumph over tragedy.


Working to tight weekly deadlines, the successful candidate will:

  • Have experience on a magazine or newspaper (some real-life experience preferred).
  • Be passionate about news and current affairs and have a feel for what fascinates, engages and entertains Aussie women.
  • Have excellent news sense and be able to spot potentially cover line-worthy articles in the media and have the persistence and persuasiveness to secure the story.
  • Possess solid writing ability and be able to deliver engaging, powerful and accurate copy quickly, and in Take 5’s distinctive style and tone.
  • Be proactive, highly-organized and a team player with excellent verbal and written communication skills.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our friendly, dynamic team and kick-start a career with Australia’s leading magazine company. To apply, please submit your CV and cover letter today.
