Have you ever had something to say, but nowhere to say it?
A chip on the shoulder, with nothing to fill it?
Got an interest in journalism or creative writing? What about digital media or marketing? Web design? Outreach projects and student engagement?
Do you have a burning desire to discuss sustainable fashion? Politics, economics? Technology?
Animal welfare? Biodiversity? Climate change? Human rights?
What about working in a closely-knit, co-operative team environment, with a mission to raise awareness of some of the key issues of our and future times?
No matter how many of those questions you might have answered yes to, GLOBUS is here for you!
GLOBUS is the School for Cross-Faculty Studies’ online journal, providing a platform for students to debate and discuss anything and everything related to humanity’s future on our world – or, in other words, sustainability! We cover all of the topics and skills listed above, and so much more. GLOBUS is a huge opportunity to make a name for yourself, to leave a mark, make a difference – and to have something to show when the end of those 3rd year modules comes around (sooner than you might think!). Since its launch, GLOBUS has covered topics ranging all the way from what it’s like to study abroad all the way through to the promising future of London’s most innovative green spaces, to name just two.
With opportunities in everything from writing through to digital media creation and running some exciting up-and-coming outreach projects in the community, GLOBUS has something for everyone, and we’d love to work with you. Collaborations with GSD staff (or those from other departments!) are very much welcome, and highly encouraged. Read on to find out about all of the opportunities on offer at GLOBUS: our application form can be found at the bottom of this page.
The Correspondents’ Team
Our Correspondents’ Team is of dedicated content-creators, seeking to create innovative, insightful commentary in any of our key content categories. We have two writing programmes:
Insightful, conscientious, and thought-provoking: our Discussion Stream is the core of our offering at GLOBUS. This Stream seeks out challenges and considers problems, discussing points of view, nuances, and solutions – all with a view to exploring and understanding the world around us.
More information on the style and flexibility of writing in this Stream can be found in our Style Guide for Writers.
Sixty Second Sustainability
Informative and entertaining, our all-new Sixty Second Sustainability programme offers our correspondents the opportunity to engage with sustainability in a pithy, succinct style – bringing you the issues of the day in an easily-digestible, journalistic-style format, on top of our Discussion Stream.
More information on the style, and links to various examples, are available in our Sixty Second Style Guide.
If you’d like more information about joining our team as a Correspondent, please get in touch with us on social media, or drop the Editor-in-Chief a line at email@example.com.
The Marketing Team
A cornerstone of GLOBUS’ mission, the Marketing Team’s mission is to reach new audiences and raise GLOBUS’ profile in the community, in support of the work of our Correspondents’ and Editors’ groups.
Our Marketing Execs have a varied and dynamic role in the wider GLOBUS team: from working on social media, to promoting our flagship programmes (such as PROJECT: Climate Emergency), and working with our partner organisations in the community.
Digital Media Manager
We’re currently recruiting for a new Digital Media Manager, with responsibility for championing and co-ordinating our video-, graphics- and audio-based output. If you’re interested and have some experience in related fields, please indicate so in the application form.
If you’d like more information about either of these roles, or to apply directly, please get in touch with our Marketing Director, Max Edgson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Editors’ Team
We’re currently offering a limited number of opportunities to get involved with our Editorial Team on our new Editor Training Programme. This programme will give you the opportunity to develop new skills and get involved with the day-to-day running and development of GLOBUS, alongside being involved with one of our Writing Streams. If you’re interested in this programme, please indicate explicitly on your application form.
Aside from our core competencies, we have opportunities available for individuals to get involved with two further fields within GLOBUS:
Technology & Digital Design
GLOBUS is, fundamentally, an online publication; we’re offering the opportunity for proactive individuals with an attention to detail, and a passion for sustainability, to get involved with designing, creating and maintaining all of our online facilities, including our website.
An important part of GLOBUS’ mission is to engage with the community, promoting knowledge of and engagement with all of our key themes; the brief of our Outreach Angels is to spearhead initiatives to engage with the community offline, through events and engagement projects.
If you’re already convinced and would like to get right on and join our us, you’re in the right place – our application form is below!
If you’re not yet sure, or you’d like to know more (though we can’t imagine why!), please feel free to get in touch with us through our social media platforms (Facebook or Twitter), or at email@example.com, and we’ll do our absolute best to answer your questions.
We really look forward to working with you!
All the best,
The GLOBUS Team
And remember – if you’d like to get involved with any of our teams on an irregular, or even one-time basis, we’d still love to hear from you!
