We’re seeking another blogger from a diverse background to complement our existing team with an interest in culture, business and media in Nottingham, whether you’re a recent graduate or experienced business professional. Good copywriting skills are crucial, prior experience of blogging is useful and a passion for celebrating Nottingham is a given. We currently work on a rota with each team blogger running the site for one week in every five – you will write about everything (all sectors) that’s new that week. The time commitment is approximately 8-10 hours a month, which can be done anytime during your editorial week.

Guest bloggers

Are you working on an exciting project or do you have ideas you would like to spread about your work in Nottingham’s creative sector?   Notts is a hotbed of awesome creative talent and we want Creative Nottingham to be the voice of the creative sector.  So far we’ve had an international furniture designer, a branding researcher, an environmental designer and a comedian talk about their work in the city.  You will write between three and five guest posts in a two week period, and we’ll be on hand to advise you with the technical side of things.  It’s a great promotional platform to share what you’re doing and start blogging.

CreativeNottingham is run co-operatively by a friendly team of creative professionals, with contributors equally benefiting from any profits made by the service or incomes received.  All team members (except guest blogger) will need to also take part in our management meetings and contribute their ideas to the develop of the organisation.  Meetings take place once a month either online or at Antenna media centre on a weekday evening.
