The University Observer is looking for staff to fill the following roles for the 2023/24 academic year. All applicants for section editor roles for Broadsheet, OTwo Magazine, and Transmedia should include a short bio, a brief overview of your plan for the year, and a minimum of two relevant published or unpublished samples of work. The bio should take into account who you are, why you are fit for the role, what discipline you are pursuing while at UCD, and an overview of previous experience if applicable.
Feel free to get creative. For Chief of Podcasting for example, you may provide pitches for either podcast, or provide a link to a podcast you have already made or been featured in. For Chief of Photography and Videography, you can assign your work samples to past University Observer articles.
For managerial roles like Social Media Editor and Events Manager, no prior samples of work are needed. A short bio, a plan for the year and examples of how you would promote the University Observer content and events will suffice.
If you would like to be considered for multiple roles, apply for your first preference and leave a note with the other roles you are interested in at the end of your email.
Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com with the subject line “Application: [Role]” by no later than end of day Tuesday July 25th 2023.
Any queries about the roles can be sent to the same address.
