Ever thought of trying journalism? Being part of a supportive and welcoming team of designers and budding journalists?
We need: people with enthusiasm, an interest in wellbeing issues as well as the world at large, to contribute articles, photos, creative writing and news and views. You will get: a friendly place to be, refreshments, a sense of purpose and skill sharpening.
We offer a supportive and friendly space with computers and space to work, time and backup to to write on whatever subject you like, within a broad wellbeing brief. Members are likely to be sent on theatre or art gallery trips to review current productions and exhibitions, sometimes to conferences and talks. There are two professional staff members to enable, facilitate and support. There are social events twice yearly – past events have included picnics and singalongs.
It is a collaborative and organic space ideal for those who would like to grow their skills, and experiment with ideas and creativity. It is an ideal opportunity to increase your skillset: you will gain experience of collaborative and team working, ideas sharing, writing, subbing, proofreading and copyediting, learning through constructive feedback and a multitude of other skills!
Members of the team have gone on to: the Open University, volunteering posts with theatres, arts centres and parks, further study, and part-time work among other occupations. There will be a month probation period at the beginning of your time with us: this is to see if what we are doing will suit you.
There are a few basic guidelines available when you start with us, focussing on attendance and productivity. We positively welcome anyone who wants to try their hand at writing and reviewing, choosing images and design and having a go at marketing too.
Please get in touch with us through firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on 020 8489 4860 and we will get back to you.
