Positions Available

Features Editor

Classic Tab. The most-read section. Features are fun and light-hearted satires of Cambridge life. Home of 'Which X is your college', 'Best Bums', and the BNOC list – there's lots of freedom to make this section your own.

News Editor

Cambridge is an ever-changing place and it is really important to keep up with its goings on. From covering Zero Carbon protests to the US Mid-Term elections, this is a fast-paced and exciting section to lead.

Opinions Editor

Do you have an opinion on just about everything? Want to enable Cantabs to express themselves better? This is a place for freedom of thought – not only will you be writing your own opinions, you will be editing different views from all over Cambridge. From serious discussions about Remembrance Day to more light-hearted opinions on Vinyl, this section has a wide scope.

Lifestyle and Fashion Editor

Got a keen eye for the latest trends and fads? Want to dish out some advice and celebrate the best dressed in Cambridge? In lifestyle and fashion you can collaborate with photographers and fashion events, as well as giving updates on the best places to date/work/eat/live.

Culture Editor

The Theatre position is expanding!!! Culture editors can shine a light on everything happening in Cambridge: theatre, music shows, art, films, speakers, literature, sports – anything you want! There will still be an emphasis on theatre reviews, but we want a larger team to cover culture that lives outside the ADC too.

Interviews Editor

Release your inner Jeremy Paxman and interview the biggest speakers in Cambridge. This can be in the Union, or anyone else we can get our hands on. A great opportunity for networking – interviews are a chance to look beyond the Cambridge bubble.


As a columnist, you will have the freedom to develop your thoughts in weekly instalments. We love having a range of columns, from sex to vegan, fresher naiveté to third year bitterness – the more original the better.

Tab TV and Tab TV Editor

Want to chat to drunken Cantabs outside Wednesday Cindies as well as capturing the essence of Cambridge lifestyle on film? We want people both in front of and behind the camera, as well as graphics designers. A surefire path to BNOCdom, join The Tab TV team.
