If you’re interested in student journalism, managing a team, and want to take control of the future of The Cambridge Student, this could be the opportunity for you.

To apply for the role of Editor-in-Chief, email a 2000-word vision for the paper which details your experience, plans for each section and a comprehensive online strategy to by Thursday 8th March 2018 at noon. Applications for Editor-in-Chief can be made as a pair, or you can apply alone. This term we particularly encourage applicants to consider the role they might play in the planned redesign of both the paper, and the website, during Easter term and beyond. This is your chance to really make an impact on the paper's future, and we are excited for the new editor(s) to take the refreshed paper forwards with a new team. 

We reccomend you look through past copies to guide your plan for the paper. 

If you have any questions about how the paper works, the application process, or what any of the jobs entail, please do not hesitate to email the Board of Directors at Read on for a full list of the roles on offer, and details of their remit: we hope you’ll be inspired to join a team that’s as professional and engaging as it is fun and sociable!
