Rife is looking for four Content Creators

  • Flat fee: £2,160 (inclusive of tax and expenses)
  • Timeframe: 12 flexible days between January to July 2022

This Autumn we are inviting four Content Creators aged between 16 and 24 years old to join Rife. We are particularly seeking applications from people that are underrepresented in the creative and culture sector (for example you are from a community that experiences racism, or you are a disabled person (as defined by the Equalities Act in 2010), or you did not go to University or you had free school meals as a child). 

As a Content Creator you will develop content creation skills alongside a multi-disciplinary team of young creatives. You will be supported by our Rife Resident Editors, as well as the wider Rife team. As part of your application we will ask you to pitch two ideas that you would like to develop in response to the themes of climate and/or community.  

Recruitment for this role will take place in Autumn/Winter 2021/22, and editorial content will be developed and published from late January to July 2022. We will discuss the detail of this with you and work out a timeframe that is productive for everyone involved.  

We are looking for Freelance practitioners (a freelancer is a person who is self-employed rather than working for a specific business long term). We can offer a flat fee of £2160 (inclusive of tax and expenses), in addition to an individual bursary of up to £500 to support the development and sustainability of your practice. As part of the support and development on offer you will also be invited to join our wider creative community by becoming a Pervasive Media Studio Resident during your time with us.

How to apply  

If you are interested in applying, please send either 1-2 sides of A4 OR a video or audio file (max 10mins in length) to editor@rifemagazine.co.uk which includes the following:  

  • A description of at least 2 pieces of content on climate and / or community that you would like to develop and publish on Rife Magazine.  

  • Why you would like to undertake this role at Rife and what you would bring to the team 

  • Any relevant links to previous work and things that have inspired your content ideas. 

  • Your name  

  • Your postcode  

  • Your email  

  • Your phone number  

Ask us questions if you need to. 

We aim to be as inclusive as possible and work to accommodate all access requirements. We will openly discuss and tailor how we do things to support you as best we can. 

Contact us on editor@rifemagazine.co.ukif written or recorded applications pose difficulties for you, we are very happy to discuss this.  

Further information  

This opportunity is part of The Future is Collective, a new Watershed development programme made possible thanks to public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The programme will propel community and climate activism by offering support and development to freelance creatives who will make new work and amplify ideas.
