Applications for The Lincoln Tab’s Editorial Team are now OPEN

We are looking for a News Editor, Features Editor and Social Media Editor

The Lincoln Tab is read by thousands of students in Lincoln and across the country per month, and we are looking for motivated students to join the editorial team for the next academic year 2021/22.

The brand new positions available are News Editor, Features Editor, and Social Media Editor. The Lincoln Tab welcomes applications from any Lincoln student.

You do not need to have written for us before or have journalistic experience, but, as these are editorial roles, some experience would help. However, even if you have never written for The Tab before, there is no better time to get involved and do something new.

If you feel like journalism isn’t typically accessible for people from your background, please do apply. You will have training from experienced editors to get you up and running.

You will also support the Editor-in-Chief in editing articles and writing every week.

You will also support the editorial team in keeping an eye out for content happening in Lincoln and looking out for the latest news and campus gossip, as well as writing pieces.
