City Press is hiring

2014-03-05 12:27

City Press is launching a new culture and lifestyle section. We will be hiring staff (on six-month contracts to start, with average to not-bad pay) and also looking for cover feature exclusives.

New jobs

What we are looking for is two young voices with an interest in a broader sense of culture – one that includes fashion and web and music videos and lifestyle advice and all the rest.

Culture news writer, trend-spotter and gig guide editor

Genuinely interested in the cultural scene, able to cover a broad range of lifestyle subjects and also identify trends; be able to live a gig guide; crisp, good and witty writing skills; reliable with work ethic.

Must take well to training; want to be able to crack news stories; want to further claim a specialist beat, be it TV, fashion, radio, personal finance, music, a column etc. Should be web savvy and should not be scared of being guided towards developing content for an app.

Culture and lifestyle writer, news, features

A brilliant young editor-in-training who can combine their writing skills with their news nose; their management talents with their subbing abilities; and who wants to grow as a feature writer and storyteller.

Punctual, reliable, committed, able to manage systems eventually.

If you know of anyone who fits the bill, please ask them to send their CV and sample writing to:
