We Are Cardiff are looking for an editorial blog intern. You’ll be more like an actual writing, producing, photographing, blogging assistant than an intern – all your experience will be hands on and more than likely be published on our rather wonderful website!
What is We Are Cardiff? It’s a city blog that focuses on telling the stories of residents, including some information about local cultural events and happenings. We get about 6,000 visitors a month, who visit roughly 11,000 pages on our site. So as you can see, there’s the chance to get your work out to a pretty big audience.
You are: probably a student though we’ll consider anyone regardless of occupation. You’re based in Cardiff and interested in local events and culture. You’ve got opinions and ideas about what makes a good online presence. You’re handy with a camera and you’re fairly competent at writing. It would help if you’ve got a working knowledge of WordPress but this isn’t a dealbreaker at all.
What will we expect you to do: you’ll be asked to provide roughly one blog post every couple of weeks (of roughly 500 words), though obviously you can submit more than this if you want to! We’ll also want you to go along to various local events and maybe do round-ups of what’s going on. You may also be asked to interview people occasionally, and have to look after the We Are Cardiff Twitter feed sometimes.
There’s no payment for this, sad face. We Are Cardiff is an entirely voluntary project – no one makes any money from it. HOWEVER, it was recently named as one of the world’s best city blogs by the Guardian, so it would probably look pretty good on your CV 🙂
If you’re interested, please apply by writing 400 words about yourself and your interests – and tell us about your favourite Cardiff secret. Could be a place, or a band, or an author – anything at all.
Closing date: 30 April 2014
