Kickstarter: Trainee Journalist

Work with our team to create exciting, engaging and informative content for young people aged 14-30

This role will source news content, provide analysis of current events, conduct interviews with experts and artists, and support the editorial direction of the website.

You will increase your knowledge of the creative world and develop experience with news writing, reviewing, interviewing and communications. 

We are looking for trainee journalists to cover politics, climate and youth issues, arts and the creative industry, or culture and entertainment – with opportunities to collaborate and explore areas of interest. An interest in arts education would be an advantage. 


You'll need to be curious, enthusiastic and analytical, with an interest in arts education, culture and media, or politics. You'll need to contact people for quotes, ask questions, and use your own initiative. You should be happy to work from home and proficient in using basic word processing, email, and uploading to a website. 

Experience with writing and interviewing would be an advantage but you can learn that on the job!
