Join The Oxford Student for Hilary Term 2017

Update: thanks to all those who have applied – we’re still looking for candidates for a few roles (see below), so get in touch if you’d be interested in joining the team!

Here at The Oxford Student, we are looking forward to assembling another great team of editors, writers, photographers, cartoonists and filmmakers to join us in making Hilary Term even better! As the largest student publication in Oxford (according to OUSU…) The Oxford Student’s print edition reaches thousands of readers every week and achieves over 100,000 online hits per month.

Working on the paper is a fantastic way to gain experience in journalism, and even work with national newspapers, but working for us is not just for those of you interested in journalism. Whether it’s finance, law, consultancy, media or pretty much anything under the sun, your experience will develop sales, marketing, legal, editorial and team skills relevant to any job. The Oxford Student is also held in very high esteem with graduate recruiters, and our Editorial staff are regularly invited to exclusive graduate recruitment events. Join the fun and watch your work go out to thousands of Oxford readers. No experience is required.

Positions are held for one term, at the end of which candidates must re-apply either for their role or another. If a candidate is unsuccessful in attaining the position they apply for, they will be able to discuss alternative options with the current editors.
