We are hiring a brand new editorial team for 2018/2019.
Our AGM is famously undemocratic – there’s no voting involved, we just pick the people with the best applications!
You don’t need to have written for us before to apply, just have an interest in all things student news and a flair for writing.
Beyond reaching an audience of nearly 13,000 on Facebook alone, the Soton Tab is an amazing team to be a part of. We are the only totally independent news outlet at the University of Southampton and completely autonomous, and have infamously fabulous socials through our amazing partnerships with local clubs and bars.
The positions include:
This role is full-on – it means writing stories in all sections, supervising all our social media accounts, editing articles from the editorial team and regular writers, and avoiding getting sued! It also means you have full control of what you write and publish!
We need a hard workers to be the editors-in-chiefs right hand – you’ll support them in writing and publishing articles, organising the team and hosting meetings. You’ll also be helping new writers with their articles, and checking people are on-deadline.
You’ll be responsible for getting your hands on all the juiciest goss in Southampton. We need people who’ve got their fingers on the pulse on campus, and know a good story when they see one.
As social editor, you’re in charge of recruiting new eager writers, as well as finding cool and interesting things for us to share on our social media. You’re our outside guy or gal, helping us market the Soton Tab to readers, writers and potential partners.
Features are all things voxpop, interview and campus life. You’re free to be educational, entertaining and opinionated all in one neat role. If you’re a good all-rounder with a flair for being funny, this is just the position for you.
Love all things music and theatre? You’ll be responsible for attending all the biggest and best events on campus (we get a lot of free tickets. Like a lot.) and passing judgment in your Soton Tab reviews.
Mad about all things Team Southampton? This is the position for you. Write up match results and games, and manage the marathon task that is live blogging Varsity day.
Have you got strong feelings about what’s going on on campus? Do you know how to make a national story Soton-relevant? Then you’re just what we’re looking for. Controversial or not, we’d love to hear your opinion.
Student elections are always just around the corner – and Union Southampton has always got news for us. Fancy being the independent eye on the student union? This position is just what you’ve been waiting for.
The deadline for applications will close on the 27th of April, and you can apply here.
