If you’re wondering how you’re going to occupy yourself over the summer holidays (itself implying you get summer holidays) and you’ve got an interest in how the least resourced newsroom in the world operates then feel free to drop us a line to come and be an intern for a week at our salubrious Civic suite.
Highlights will include:
- — The awesome power of comment moderation
— Laughing at hate mail from nutters
— Getting to throw your suggestions in on editorial decisions
— An exploration of all the best lunch take aways in Civic
— Long philosophical discussions on the nature of news
— Nitpicking media releases
— Running around taking photos of interesting things
— By the end of the week being able to manage a high volume website
— Discovering the lost world of the garbage skips
— Learning to call yourself a “social media expert” as credibly as any other bugger
It might not be for everyone, or anyone, and there’s no pay. But if you’re interested send an email in to firstname.lastname@example.org
