Love gaming? We’re looking for a new writer to join our gaming channel, Clocked

Want to work alongside Happy Mag’s team in Sydney? We’re looking for new faces to join our dedicated gaming channel, Clocked.

In March 2020 we launched Clocked, an official gaming channel by Happy Mag. Now we’re ready to expand that team, and are looking for an intern based in Sydney.

We’re looking for a new face to join our growing team and help take Clocked to the next level. Please note due to the current COVID-19 restrictions this role will be remote, but applicants will be expected to work from our Sydney office when restrictions are listed.

We are looking for an intern to join our team of contributors one or two days per week. So if you’re gifted with a pen (or keyboard) and you’re always plugged in, with a passion for games and gaming culture, then we’d love to hear from you!

The experience could be accredited with relevant media and journalism qualifications, and a letter of reference can be provided.

The role is initially unpaid, however as we expand our editorial output we hope to develop a full time in-house role for the right candidate.

  • Experience in a writing role in the gaming, publishing, or entertainment industry
  • Knowledge of the gaming scene in Australia and beyond
  • The ability to develop engaging written content from concept to creation
  • Excellent verbal communication skills
  • Excellent written skills including editing, spelling, and grammar
  • Excellent organisational and interpersonal skills

The job specification looks something like this:

  • Researching relevant and interesting news stories
  • Write highly compelling articles to strict deadline
  • Play and review new games on relevant platforms
  • Develop high-quality features and conduct compelling interviews
