Job Title: Contributing Writers (voluntary)
Working For: Future Labour
Salary: None (part-time)
www.futurelabour.org.uk/@_FutureLabour is a volunteer powered platform focussed on the future of work within the fourth industrial revolution. Future Labour aims to be the place to go for supporters of the Labour Party to read thought leadership on the future of the British digital economy, and the role that the politics of the left has to play.
Articles on the website are designed to inform readers through both an objective and subjective assessment. They need to be researched, considered and of high quality. The website will initially include features and commentary, but will later include detailed reports and policy reviews. Journalism experience is not vital but you must be passionate about the topic and writing.
Articles should be between 600-1,300 words. Writers are encouraged to pitch their own ideas on an on-going basis, with the editor having discretion as to publication. Future Labour will also cross-post the best content through its agreed partner channels, including the Huffington Post.
The role being advertised is a voluntary one. As such, there are no set hours and responsibilities and you should be free to come and go as you wish. If the post demands set hours and/or has a specific job description you may be deemed to be a ‘worker’ and be covered by National Minimum Wage legislation.
Closing Date: 2 December 2016
