Lacuna: Bloggers/Social media assistants

We are looking for candidates who are keen to learn the nuts and bolts of online journalism, developing stories from first draft to front page. An interest in human rights is vital and the ideal candidates will regularly bring ideas for new content. You’ll work with Lacuna’s editor to upload multimedia stories to the website, grow Lacuna’s social media profiles and promote our content to the widest possible audience.

Knowledge of Wordpress or another content management system is useful but not essential. Some background in online publishing/blogging would be handy, as would an understanding of the potential of social media for reaching new audiences. The successful candidates will be enthusiastic and reliable, and expected to either come into the office or work with the editor online via Teams during a weekly shift of somewhere between three and five hours (at a mutually convenient time to be arranged). This position is paid at approx. £12.50 per hour.

To apply, please write a Lacuna-style blog post (max 300 words) relating to one of the stories on our site or another human rights issue of your choice. Email this with your CV (including links to any relevant work) and a covering letter (max 250 words) to by midnight on Friday 15th October 2021.
