Run Riot is hiring freelancers

Run Riot is hiring freelancers:
- Editorial Manager
- Social Media Manager


Overview

Run Riot is an independent online arts and culture magazine.

This year we're looking to develop our social media channels and editorial content, while we look at ways to fundraise for further development and to scale what we do.

We’re seeking two freelancers to work with us as we grow. The roles will suit freelancers who value culture and are looking to top-up their existing work.

As a culture guide, our main activity hinges around our weekly Guest Edited newsletter sent to our subscribers. Content includes recommended events, interviews, competitions and offers.

We cover live music, art, film, theatre, dance, club culture - and everything in between and beyond. It’s a given, we set out to highlight niche, counterculture creatives in equal measure to established talent. Where possible we amplify the meeting point of arts, progressive contemporary culture and social movements.

If you're interested in either of these freelancer roles, please address the 5 required points below and send an email to jamie@run-riot.com by Friday 10 June, 17:00.

Please:
- include the URL to your Linkedin profile / or email your CV
- briefly explain why you would like to work with Run Riot (max 200 words)
- state how you heard about the post
- offer 4-examples of other media you refer to for culture updates (i.e. a particular website or app, podcast, TV or radio program, newspaper or magazine, etc)
- offer 4-examples of 'culture' taking place in London during July which demonstrate your taste (please include a URL per event)
