Cambridge is a unique and quirky place, no doubt about that. Do you want to compare all the colleges to eighteenth-century political philosophers?

This position is perfect for you if you enjoy analysing the political, moral, social, environmental consequences of everything that goes on here. Fun opinion articles are also welcome too though.

Interviews Editor

Want to meet all the famous people who come to Cambridge but can't stand trying to be a Union hack? Jealous of those people who have hundreds of likes on instagram just because they met Jacob Rees-Mogg? Or even fancy doing some spoof interviews a.k.a the Rees-Mogg interview that never happened?

Theatre Editor

If you want to swap being on stage to the front row, then this is the role for you. Free tickets to all the plays you want to see, with the power to dissect and criticise.
