Mashable UK Editorial Fellow

Editorial London, United Kingdom


Description

Position at Mashable

Mashable’s UK team is seeking a tech-savvy and internet-obsessed Editorial Intern. Does that sound like you? Great! Read on. 

As a fellow focusing on technology and digital culture, you'll stay up to date on the latest Apple product and SpaceX rocket launches while also browsing TikTok for the latest weird trend or gadget everyone wants to try. You’ll learn and improve your skills in writing quick news stories, creating search-friendly utilities, and pitching ideas for the Mashable audience. You’ll be up to speed on what Big Tech just said on Twitter and whether it’s newsworthy. You’ll be explaining why that latest meme or online campaign matters at dinner. Plus, you’ll work with a team of editors and writers who love the internet and tech just as much as you.

The ideal candidate thrives on tight deadlines and a fast pace but can still raise a sceptical eye to check all facts, assumptions, and presuppositions. They’ll be able to balance quick turnaround stories with longer-term stories. They can also write in a way that is informative and helpful while maintaining a strong voice. They’re also willing to explore and engage with the internet, in all its weirdness.

The Day to Day:

  • Taking on 2-3 assignments per day 
  • Writing search-friendly listicles, guides, and short features
  • Assisting with fact-checking and research
  • Pitching stories appealing to a Mashable reader
  • Working with the UK team, within the global Mashable team, to develop stories

Must haves:

  • Delightful human with can-figure-it-out attitude 
  • An enthusiasm for working on a team
  • Familiarity and strong interest in technology and digital culture
  • Knows what makes a useful story
  • Understanding of basic SEO practices 
  • Team player: You know when to ask for help, and ask to help
  • Enthusiasm for Mashable's core coverage areas: tech, culture, and entertainment
  • Strong grasp of grammar and AP Style
  • Minimum availability of 35 hours a week (this is a full-time internship)
  • Based in the UK, but will be remote 

*Mashable Internships are Paid*
