How to apply
The Comms team are looking to expand in 2016 in order to feature more content online, (both visual and written) that is created, and curated, by students.
Comms volunteers help the Union to produce relevant, regularly updated content and will gain experience in online journalism, photography and communication/outreach. As with all Students’ Union volunteering opportunities, there is plenty of scope for your own input and creativity which is actively encouraged.
Experience running a personal blog, or keeping diverse and frequently updated social media channels would be preferred but not required.
We’d ask you to stick to agreed deadlines, have a good grasp of written technique (including grammar and spelling), and be able to demonstrate enthusiasm and flair in your work.

This a voluntary placement for students which will feature some training to help you gain experience of online journalism and content creation, as well as providing a platform for your work to be read by a large number of people. There will be support from an experienced Union staff member.
We welcome applications from everyone, including but not exclusive to; postgraduates, people with an ethnic minority background, people with a disability, people with dependants, and people who identify as LGBTQ.
