Want to be the next Bajo? Applications have just opened, and here’s what you’ll need if you want to make the cut.
Listed on the ABC’s careers page, the listing says the new host would be filling a “contract vacancy” for around 11 months. Interest in games journalism and gaming is mandatory – obviously – but the show is also looking for an energetic, confident personality on-camera, as well as someone who can work with a script or off the cuff.
The main attributes you’ll need are:
- You will be responsible for researching and presenting original and entertaining stories on games, the games industry, and gaming culture
- Reviewing games across all genres and platforms and presenting those opinions on-air
- Working collaboratively with the Spawn Point team to extend the reach of our gaming content across multiple platforms and social media
It’s a video role first and foremost, so you’ll have to submit either a two minute “original game review” with you presenting to camera, or a short show-reel with your application.
If you want to try your hand at becoming the next face for gaming on Australian TV, there’s more detail on the ABC website. Applications close just before midnight AEDT on November 24.
