Rife Is Hiring Four New Content Creators

Rife are looking for four content creators to come and join the team!

Rife is an online platform co-created with young creatives – supporting  them to have their voices heard and covering the stories that matter to them. We develop young people’s digital skills, confidence, experience and networks so they can thrive. We believe young people’s voices should be part of the media landscape, so it is relevant and representative.

At Rife, the core of our mission is represented by our paid in-house content creator positions. While employed at Rife, young creatives make everything you see on the website, from thought-provoking articles to powerful videos, and promote it on social media.

We want four young content creators to come join us as a freelancer (a freelancer is a person who is self-employed rather than working for a specific business long term) for 12 flexible days between January to July 2022, where you make content for Rife magazine – blogs, articles, videos, photos, etc about what’s important to young people in the city. In return, you get mentored by an experienced team of creatives to develop your portfolio and networks.

If you’re 18-24 and want a job making videos, writing articles, taking photos of things you care about, from skating to music to politics to film to comedy, and so on and so on, then this is the job for you.

No qualifications necessary just good ideas, enthusiasm and a desire to develop your skills.
