Interiors Addict is looking for a part-time editorial assistant. This is a paid contract role, starting at 8 hours per week in December with a view to increasing to 3 days per week in June.
This would suit a final year journalism/media/communications student or recent graduate, ideally in Sydney but will consider applicants anywhere in Australia.
- Love all things homewares and believe you can never have too many cushions or candles!
- Be a fast, accurate writer, confident at interviewing people in person, by phone and via email. Ideally you love Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and are keen to learn about digital publishing.
- Duties will include writing about new products, shops and trends, attending launches in Sydney (or elsewhere local to you) and some admin and social media support. Knowledge of the interior design industry is a bonus but not as important as a love of furniture, homewares and décor. You’ll get the chance to attend some glamorous and fun launch events and parties and be a confident networker who likes meeting new people.
You should have a can-do attitude and be good at taking constructive feedback.
This is a paid contract role and you’ll be working from home. You can expect to receive mentoring from someone with 14 years experience as a newspaper and magazine journalist and, more recently, full-time blogger. Your byline will be seen by 60,000 people a month and you’ll make great PR contacts.
Please send a cover letter, explaining why you’re the ideal person for the role, with a resume and examples of your published work, to Jen Bishop at [email protected] by 9 November 2013. Please explain your suitability for the hours offered (perhaps only 1 day a week for 6 months, then 3 days a week from mid-2014).
Shortlisted candidates will be contacted after 9 November. Applications without a cover letter will not be considered.
