Apprenticeship

Join our team



We’re looking for aspiring writers to join our global team of music nerds.

Our team is made up of 4 staff writers and 11 contributors from 6 different countries around the world. We are looking for someone to join our international team who is looking to start a career in music journalism.

This is a 6 month unpaid apprenticeship that aims to give you the experience you need to become a journalist for a music related publication.

What you’ll get from us

  • Guidance on shaping your own column
  • Our tips on how to navigate an online CMS
  • Advice on how to get your work seen on social
  • Opportunities to talk to and listen to up-and-coming artists
  • A chance to publish your work

What we are looking for

  • Someone who is passionate about music (no matter the genre). You will be consuming a lot of music you’ve never heard of before.
  • A basic knowledge of Spotify, Soundcloud, Deezer, Twitter, TikTok, and Instagram. We will be giving you access to our social channels.
  • A self-motivated drive to write.

The perks

  • Access to the latest music before it is released
  • Connections with musicians and other writers
  • Tickets to live events (if COVID ever allows us out again)
  • You can be located anywhere in the world!

To apply, email us with a short paragraph why you would be a good fit and a 10-track Spotify playlist of what you are listening to right now.
