Description

We're a new startup and looking to build content for our magazine online.
We're looking for students who would like to build their portfolio and showcase their writing skills while finishing university, or for graduates looking for a job in the industry who want to have an opportunity to build their portfolio.

We have 3 volunteer vacancies:
- 1 x Editor: you will choose the text to be published. You will work directly with the owner of the magazine and build the content of the magazine. You will review the text, edit as necessary, and publish on the website. To be editor you must have had some experience working as a journalist or similar, or you may have been the editor of your student magazine at school. As well as editing the text, you will also need to choose the images that go with the text.

- 2 x journalist/writer vacancies
if successful in applying for a journalist/writer vacancy, you will have tow roles to perform:
1 - one role is that of interviewer: you will need to interview entrepreneurs and record (in writing) those interviews. You can do the interviews in person, via Skype or by email. Once you have recorded the text of the interview, you will need to edit and publish it. You will need to complete 2 interviews a week.

2 - writing/blogging
You will write content for the website which is related to public relations. The text will be blog type, informal but informative and professional. You will need to be very creative and English has to be your first language. Your text needs to be ready to be published (so it must be well polished and grammatically correct).

These are voluntary roles that can be done alongside other work/studies and can be done from home.
You will have a Skype call once a week with the magazine owner and as much contact as you need via WhatsApp and email.

Qualifications

You need to have a degree in Comms, English, Journalism, PR or similar.
ideally English is your first language or near-native. You need to present text that is grammatically correct and ready to be published online.

You will be given full credit for the text you write, as well as an online recommendation on Linkedin and a reference letter.

Reference letters and credit for work delivered will only be given to volunteers who complete at least 3 months and have at least 24 articles published.
