Volunteer with AIYA – Blog Editor Position

AIYA is currently seeking two volunteer Blog Editors to manage the AIYA blog. If you’re a young person with an interest in the Australia-Indonesia relationship and experience in journalism, editing or social media, we’d like to hear from you.

As blog editor you’ll be responsible for planning and developing content for the AIYA blog — with a focus on day-to-day tasks like editing, working with our authors, and scheduling posts for distribution.

Since it launched in 2013, the AIYA Blog has provided a platform for youth perspectives and information for youth in the bilateral relationship, from culture and politics to film reviews, career profiles and AIYA member spotlights.

For more information about the Blog Editor role, please read the position description.

How to apply

Applications for the blog editor position are open until 15 July 2018. To apply, please email a copy of your CV and a cover letter of up to 350 words addressing the key responsibilities and necessary skills for the role to communications@aiya.org.au.

The position is open to young people from Australia or Indonesia who meet the selection criteria outlined. The roles are best suited to current undergraduate/postgraduate students or those that have just entered the workforce. If you’re interested in the position, or not sure if you fit the bill, we suggest you get in touch with us anyway — we’d be happy to discuss other ways we could work together.

These roles in the communications team are a fantastic opportunity to get involved in AIYA at almost every level. You’ll be working directly with the Director of Communications, as well as with the other members of the AIYA Communications team. You will also have regular contact with the National Executive, as well as Chapter representatives, whilst assisting to boost the presence of AIYA in person and online.
