Work Opportunities


Work from home, business hours to suit you


The Local Paper looks forward to ongoing growth - in size and readership!
Our team is also growing and we have a number of opportunities.


The Local Paper is published by Yea Newspapers, a division of Local Media Pty Ltd, which also publishes the Melbourne Observer (established 1969), National Observer, Travel Monthly, Sydney News and the Brisbane Sun.

The Melbourne Observer is a popular publication, on sale weekly at more than 400 newsagents across metropolitan Melbourne, the Mornington and Bellarine (Geelong) Peninsulas, and throughout regional and rural Victoria.

The Melbourne Observer owes much of its success to the strong support it receives from its advertisers. Thousands of businesses have ordered major display advertising with the Melbourne Observer over the past 12 years.

The Melbourne Observerís continued strong growth gives us opportunities to work with additional Advertising Sales Agents. An Information Kit gives details of current Agent positions being offered. We are here for the long-term: only experienced, ethical sales people need apply.

To ensure that our people enjoy the very maximum in earnings, our positions are on a contract basis. We pay weekly on an industry-best level of 20 per cent commission of sales - this means full-time, eager, experienced, proficient professional sales agents can realistically achieve gross weekly earnings of between $1000 ($50,000 p.a.) and $3000 ($150,000 p.a.).

Advertising Sales Agents work from their own home - and need their own phone, e-mail and office environment. On-the-road Ad Sales Agents need their own car, phone, fax, e-mail. All need their own ABN.

If, after reading the information kit, you would like to make the next step and discuss the possibilities of being an Advertising Sales Agent for Local Media Pty Ltd, please phone the Editor, Mr Ash Long, personally on 5797 2656 or 1800 231 311, to arrange for an interview time.
