Could you run The Tab? We’re recruiting for the next editor of one of Leeds’ most popular student voice

Do you want to influence campus conversation and, y’know, do some funny GIF articles? Apply to be Tab editor


Every week, 50,000 people read The Tab Leeds, making us one of the most popular student sites in the country.

We draw a huge audience at Leeds uni (and elsewhere) because we cover the issues they care about, in a style they want to read.

And we’re always first to report the big stories – from shocking crime in Hyde Park to hilarious library antics.

Plus, we know this is lame, but editing The Tab really does open doors for your career. Tab journalists are eligible for a £4,500 scholarship at City University, the top journalism course in the country.
