It's a great opportuity to get your foot in the online publishing door - you'll be working across all aspects of our publications, including editorial.

You will manage our office's administrative and financial functions and provide support to our editors and management team. The right candidate will also have the opportunity to write for our websites, producing regular features and scouring the web for the juiciest news.
Passion for internet publishing is a must. It's a plus if you have administrative or writing experience, or are working towards or have journalism qualifications.
