MAGAZINE EDITORIAL SUBCOMMITTEE

In celebration of the OUISoc’s 60th Anniversary, we will be launching an online magazine this year
- and here’s your chance to be a part of it.

The magazine will serve as a platform for all our OUISoc members to create and share articles or podcasts on subjects that matter to them. Topics can range from experiences of Muslim students to life at Oxford and beyond.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a vibrant team, gain valuable experience for your CV, and get involved in a creative project. Whether you’re looking to go into the creative industries and/or just genuinely enjoy creating content, we want it to become a personalised platform for all of you. We welcome you to apply for a role, and even if you don't get an official position you can always be a content contributor at any time that suits you!

We are looking for a dedicated team to:

- Manage the OUISoc's new blog
- Source content for articles and podcasts
- Assist the Media Officer and Communications Chair with social media content

Applications close on Sunday 28th October.
