Vacancies

Due to the success of the Socialist Economic in its first few months, we are seeking to expand our small editorial team. The workload and responsibilities are fast becoming to great for the current team of volunteers. All roles are voluntary for the foreseeable future as this project is run on a non-profit and cooperative basis. The co-operative nature of the Socialist Economic means that if/when it makes money, profits will be shared equally among the members. Below are listed some specific roles, but if you have anything that you feel you can bring to the table, please do get in touch. All are part-time, home-based positions, so you are able to work from home in your own time.


Commissioning Editor – International

The role of a commissioning editor is to commission articles from politicians, organisations, activists and others, and ensuring that standards and deadlines are met. The focus of our content is generally either forward looking, focusing on policy and political developments, or an analysis of recent events in the political, social and economic world. It may also require you to write your own articles, if you so desire.

This particular role covers all areas outside the UK and Ireland and includes any social, economic and political developments that may occur.

This is a part-time position.

If you are interested please send a CV or cover letter and a sample of your writing (if you have one) to socialisteconomic@gmail.com with the job title as the subject.


Social Media Manager

The social media manager will need an understanding of various social media platforms (including Facebook, Twitter, Reddit etc) and will be jointly responsible for keeping these accounts updated and for growing their following/traffic. You will also work with the Editor to develop an effective social media strategy and timetable.

This is a part-time position.

If you are interested please send a CV or cover letter to socialisteconomic@gmail.com with the job title as the subject.


Feature Writer

Staff writers contribute in-depth articles to the monthly edition of the magazine alongside the editorial and the commissioned pieces. Article will be relevant to current affairs in the UK, Ireland and internationally, and may focus on any number of issues relating to political, economic and social issues.

You will need to be able to meet standards and deadlines, but will have largely free reign in terms of quantity and topic.

This is a part-time position.

If you are interested please send a sample of your writing to socialisteconomic@gmail.com with the job title as the subject.


Reporter

The role of a reporter will be to cover press releases and events of interest as they occur. This differs from a Feature Writer in that it doesn’t require analysis or evaluation, but will serve to keep our readers up to date, particularly on topics that may not receive much coverage in mainstream outlets. This work may also form the basis of more in-depth articles in the future.

This is a part-time position.
