Jobs at Concrete Playground

Purpose for this role

We're looking for a talented writer with a passion for Australia's dining culture and food scene to help drive our organic content output in Melbourne.

  • Juggle news with multiple competing deadlines so all content is delivered in a timely fashion to our readers.
  • Dream up new feature ideas, commission editorial and photography work and build up Concrete Playground's talent pool as needed.

Competencies
