Vision Christian Radio is Australia’s National Christian radio network, with coverage in every state, and around 60 paid staff. We broadcast from Brisbane to Australia’s largest cities and tiniest towns. Vision is listener supported and passionate about ‘Connecting Faith to Life’ for our listeners.  

Vision Christian Media is a non-profit charity that has been working hard to bring the good news of the Gospel to Australia since 1986. Under our old name of UCB Australia, we were a key driver in establishing over 30 independent Christian Community radio stations during the 1990s before we became a broadcaster and publisher ourselves. And haven't we grown since then!

Now, we reach 1/3 of Australia, and hundreds of thousands of Aussies across the country turn to us daily for encouragement, good company, support and biblical perspective. Helping them connect faith to their life.

Position Summary

Vision Christian Radio is currently seeking Expressions of Interest for various roles in our newsroom. Our National News Service has a regular audience of approximately 2.5 million people.  

We are seeing an increased demand to deliver local and global news from a Christian perspective. This has been the catalyst to ‘dream bigger’. We’re currently scoping how to expand and diversify the way we currently deliver our National News Service (currently produced from our Brisbane studios) to a new model which will enable us to have access to journalists, readers and writers across the nation and allow us to develop the next generation of Christian media professionals.
