The Nottingham Tab is now recruiting for our editorial team! Applications are open for a position for the academic year 2021/22.

Positions are available for Editor-in-Chief, News Editor, Features Editor and Social Media Editor, and we welcome applications from all Notts students.

Experience with journalism may help your application, but even if you’ve never written for The Tab, now is a great time to get involved and take on something new. Plus, you get all the Notts goss first…


As Editor-in-Chief, you’ll oversee all the articles the Tab Notts publishes and be responsible for leading the team on all the latest news and stories on campus.

You’ll be writing news and features every week, alongside editing articles for the team. Working with the section editors, your job is to keep The Tab on top of all the latest news, and ensure all of the team are writing something.

The role is really rewarding and a great opportunity to get involved in leading the team!

News Editor

The Nottingham Tab is always looking out for the next big story, and as News Editor your biggest responsibility is reporting on the latest scoops from Notts- be it Uni of, or Trent.

You’ll need to have an eye for a good story, always have an ear out for the latest news, controversies and events, and have a passion to report on scoops before anyone else.

It’s key to keep up-to-date on Nottingham’s news, from protests on campus to major announcements from the University.

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

Features Editor

This role is for anyone who wants to take charge on the Nottingham Tab’s great feature pieces! You’ll be responsible for writing and editing the iconic feature pieces for the team.

Working on pieces that cover current opinions, fun guides and witty commentary on campus life, you’ll oversee the quizzes, opinion pieces, guides and other fun stories that we write.

Rating outfits on campus, or arguing which Notts club is better – as Features Editor you’ll have a keen interest in everything relevant and relatable to Notts students.

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

Social Media Editor

Your job will be to manage The Nottingham Tab’s social media channels across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

If you’ve got a great talent for memes, want to promote a brand image or just love scrolling all day, this one’s for you. Your responsibilities will include advertising our articles, posting content on our stories, sharing memes and growing our audience and keeping our followers engaged!

You’ll also support the editorial team in keeping an eye out for Notts-related content and watching for the latest news and campus gossip.
