Are you passionate about European issues and contributing to a pan-European dialogue?

E&M is looking for passionate and inventive editors and contributors across all forms of multimedia.

We are currently recruiting contributors and editors to join our transnational team, don’t miss out and apply by the 18th April 2019 20:00 CET

Editors wanted!

E&M is an award-winning magazine that gives voice to a generation who thinks about Europe from unconventional perspectives.

It is an outstanding project and we are looking for outstanding people to join us and shape the future of the magazine. We don’t care what you’ve studied or what you do in life. We want talented people passionate about Europe and motivated to make a difference at a time when Europe needs young voices the most.

We believe that modern, connected Europe deserves a modern, connected media, to counteract the apocalyptic fake-news media monopoly. With this as our guiding mission, we publish transnational writing across a broad range of topics, from politics and identity to travel and sex. In short, we aim to make Europe personal.

Our offer

Being an editor of E&M means that you are an essential part of a high quality and innovative media platform. As an editorial team we determine the content direction and make the big decisions that influence the future of the magazine. This is a great opportunity to gain editorial experience in an exciting youth-focused, international format.

But E&M isn’t just a magazine, it is a first-rate network of passionate young people. Previous editors have gone on to work as journalists for leading press agencies and newspapers in Europe and further afield, blue-chip companies in the finance and communications sectors and high profile public sector organisations. Several have been accepted onto some of the most competitive PhD programmes in the world.

Your role

Editors have special decision rights and responsibilities for managing the magazine. Together they make up the editorial board, which is the control centre of E&M. The board decides on all important developments from the content of the magazine to partnerships. If your application is successful you will join the editorial board and take the lead in exciting areas like:

  • Creating the content of the magazine (e.g. editing a section of the magazine, from commissioning articles and editing submissions to uploading the finished content onto our web platform)
  • Organising the magazine (e.g. running editorial Skype conferences and meetings)
  • Forging partnerships and networks (e.g. communication and negotiations with partners, participation in meetings and conferences)
  • Overseeing funding and spending with regard to the magazine and related projects (e.g. writing funding applications)
  • Planning and running workshops, conferences, training sessions and other activities (from designing concepts to managing the final events)
  • Raising the international profile of E&M (e.g. writing press releases or managing our Facebook and Twitter accounts)

The combination of tasks depends on your personal interests and strengths – you can combine some editing work with some project management work, or focus completely on project management, or devote yourself to improving our website.

We are seeking people with genuine commitment. Your personal work load will depend on your specific tasks, the current status of projects, and your current capacity to devote time to the project.

  • Interested in Europe: we understand Europe as a state of mind (and not as another term for the EU) and are looking for your creative, critical, inventive stories;
  • Reliable and responsible: E&M is an entirely volunteer-driven project, so we need people who share our enthusiasm and know how to stick to deadlines;
  • Team players: what makes E&M special is a great team of young people that you can rely on for inspiration, feedback and fun transnational meetings.

With this as our guiding mission, we publish transnational writing across a broad range of topics, from politics and identity to travel and sex. In short, we aim to make Europe personal.

Our offer

Being a contributor for E&M you will have the freedom to pursue your own journalistic interests, supported by our team of dedicated volunteer editors. We will offer you the opportunity to collaborate with writers from every corner of Europe and keep you up to date on competitions, workshops and other transnational journalistic events. This is a unique chance to get involved with an exciting, modern, and truly transnational project. All we ask for in return is a commitment to creating a minimum of two pieces of content for the magazine, or our Sixth Sense current affairs blog each year.

But E&M isn’t just a magazine, it is a first-rate network of passionate young people. Previous contributors have gone on to work as journalists for leading press agencies and newspapers in Europe and further afield, blue-chip companies in the finance and communications sectors and high profile public sector organisations.

Your role

Journalistic experience is an advantage, but it is not essential. If you are under 35 years of age and are keen to make a contribution towards an international dialogue about Europe, we want you to apply. We welcome applications from a wildly diverse range of people — past and current contributors hail from places as far-flung as Brazil and Hong Kong — with a diverse range of talents. If this sounds like you, your challenge is to excite us.

Your role could include:

  • Researching and writing articles (or blog entries) for the magazine, including communication with section editors;
  • Blogging from events around Europe;
  • Taking photos or video footage of people, events and landscapes to illustrate our stories or publish as standalone multimedia journalism;
  • A mixture of the above.
